  15. Upstream Engagement Citations 002 • Project title • Brief description • Main focus • Project start/end date • Key PwC contacts • Key BP contacts ePerformance Project ePerformance combines the core of BP's performance culture and processes with its aspiration to become a deeply digital organization. Short term, ePerformance is all about putting in place the right building blocks for the future performance management and reporting environment. Using current year financials and the GFO process to prove the concept, the ePerformance project will deliver an integrated management information system and financial model, an operational data store and web-enabled workflow, analysis and presentation tools. Long term, its objective is to create an integrated, web-enabled performance management and reporting environment (people, processes and technology) that facilitates the end-to-end assembly, analysis and discussion of performance management metrics for financials, HSE, Operations and People. While initially an Upstream project, the project’s guiding philosophy includes the ability to scale for other Stream and / or Group deployment and it aligns with overall Group management information systems direction. ePerformance is aligned with Upstream's focus on Safety, Teamwork and Production. Through the collaborative efforts of asset and business unit management teams setting and tracking performance targets and evaluating options and what-if scenarios, overall production and financial performance will be enhanced.   Performance Improvement/e-Business - Performance Management, iAnalytics May 2000 – Dec 2001 Neil McCormack, Don Mettica, Greg Mitchell, Bob Gruman, Jon Hopkins, Adrian Chapman, David French, Stuart Bonnington Brad Richardson, Mike Rosepiler, Garth Perry, Patrick Smith, Reb Scarborough

  23. Upstream Engagement Citations 010 • Project title • Brief description • Main focus • Project start/end date • Key PwC contacts • Key BP contacts World Class Close – Communications Strategy / Training Systems Development To ensure the effectiveness of the World Class Close project, both the business and accounting users needed to apply the process consistently. PwC Consulting [Transform] were brought in to lead the communications and training elements aimed at making the process changes a reality. As part of the communications work, Transform designed and developed a Communications Strategy, a series of workshops for key stakeholders, a 'motivational' presentation, complete with guidance notes and FAQs along with job aids, posters and e-cards. With regard to the training, Transform identified the need for highly modular, web-based training to be developed. This enabled users to quickly access the sections relevant to them and was backed up by a performance support tool to help users complete key documentation. Transform were responsible for the needs analysis, solution design, development of the performance support tool, vendor management, project management, and quality assurance aspects of the project.

  24. Upstream Engagement Citations 011 • Project title • Brief description • Main focus • Project start/end date • Key PwC contacts • Key BP contacts Real Options Valuation (ROV) – Knowledge / Skills Transfer Real Options are emerging as a new standard for valuing, selecting and managing strategic investments. BP have applied ROV successfully in the past using the help of PwC’s Corporate Finance and Recovery (CFR) Department but are keen to be able to use ROV in the future without always having to rely upon external support. To enable them to adopt ROV internally, a transfer of knowledge and skills was needed. Transform worked alongside CFR and BP to develop a one-day awareness course for senior business unit managers and a two-day case study based course for commercial analysts. The training was designed around a 5-stage approach to ROV that Transform developed through consultation with CFR. Both courses were developed to ensure hands-on and relevant learning for the participants. Transform co-instructed both courses with CFR and BP early in the roll out stage.

  31. Upstream Engagement Citations 018 • Project title • Brief description • Main Focus • Project start/end date • Key PwC contacts • Key BP contacts Amoco Exploration & Production / Chemicals SAP R/3 Implementation Amoco Corporation initiated this project to reduce back office costs across the company. It was determined that business process reengineering in conjunction with the implementation of SAP R/3 in all business areas would garner the desired costs savings. PwC Consulting was selected as the Systems Integration Partner for the Exploration and Production, and Chemicals business groups. This project engaged PwC Consulting in certain efforts such as maintaining the integration of common processes across business groups, archiving of SAP documents and the reduction of working capital levels. To build momentum and prove the concept of SAP, the Fabric subsidiary from Chemicals was piloted (a “base” configuration) and implemented into production on March 1, 1996. The resulting configuration was treated as the common design from that point forward. The common design was managed to ensure that any benefits of commonality, across business groups, was realized. To accelerate the SAP implementations at E&P and Chemicals, the base configuration was used as a Template. The Chemical business unit successfully implemented SAP into production on January 1, 1997 using a Big Bang approach.Technology Solutions January 1996 – March 1997 Scott Beckman (Project Partner), Marty Rich (Project Manager), Marybeth Brown

  32. Upstream Engagement Citations 019 • Project title • Brief description • Main Focus • Project start/end date • Key PwC contacts • Key BP contacts Venezuela Operations – Software Solutions Before this project BP Amoco used a number of electronic and manual systems to manage their finance, procurement, inventory and maintenance business processes. The anticipated growth and complexity of the business in Venezuela prompted the client to review their IT requirements. PwC Consulting was engaged to review the existing processes and identify user requirements as a basis to select and tailor a recommended software solution flexible enough to meet existing and future needs. This project also required PwC Consulting to identify the owners of the applications and ensure their commitment to the project and its deliverables. It was confirmed that the system recently installed in their Colombian operation would meet BP Amoco’s needs. The commonality with the Colombian operation reduced the risks associated and allowed Venezuela to run their systems in Columbia, taking advantage of the outsourcing arrangement with PwC Consulting BPO at a later date.
