Railroad Commission of Texas taps CGI to fuel performance gains

CGI today announced it has been awarded a US$13.9 million IT modernization contract over two years by the Railroad Commission of Texas.

Texas is the nation’s largest oil producing state, and the Railroad Commission regulates its oil and gas industry. The IT modernization program will optimize Commission functions, providing the automation-assisted processes, tools and data needed for regulators to keep pace with booming demand for oil and gas production while protecting public safety and the environment.

“The Railroad Commission is known worldwide as a top oil and gas regulator for an industry that provides our nation with vital domestic energy resources while pumping dollars into our state and national economies,” said Milton Rister, executive director of the Railroad Commission of Texas. “This current IT modernization program will help our agency use the latest computer technology to continue to serve as a premier state regulator that provides the industry with clear and consistent rules needed for public safety and the protection of our state’s natural resources.”

According to CGI Vice President and Texas Account Executive Sergio Rodriguez, “The Railroad Commission of Texas performs a critical oversight mission in the energy well-being of both state and nation, and we are delighted to have earned its trust. Our goal is to help the Commission use data and information to fuel a wide variety of high productivity permitting and compliance operations.”

Through partnership with CGI, the IT modernization program will consolidate systems and revise outdated manual processes, to include improvements such as:
• Integrated web-based applications that enable efficient data exchange and permitting;
• Shortened permit turnaround time, enabling the Commission to respond more rapidly;
• Increased customer self-service opportunities for the Commission’s constituents, as well as easier access to regulatory data and information.

CGI has extensive experience working with more than 10 state regulatory agencies across the nation to support their permitting and compliance processes, as well as partnering with another Texas regulatory agency, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, to improve their processes.: GIBtoday announced it has been awarded a US$13.9 million IT modernization contract over two years by the Railroad Commission of Texas.
