Deployment of Siemens XHQ at Aramco

Source: 11/9/2004, Location: Middle East

Saudi Aramco decides on XHQ of Siemens to link production and business data in one information portal Siemens has signed an agreement with Saudi Aramco, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, the world's leading crude oil producer, to deploy the XHQ operations intelligence platform throughout its business. As one platform across all petroleum operations, from wellheads, crude oil processing, gas oil separation, gas processing, to refineries and loading terminals, XHQ links all production and business data of Aramco in a single information portal. With this "Real Time Operations Intelligence" solution Aramco gets a comprehensive overview of its operations with up-to-date analyses of everything from production and plant utilization to trends in demand, market prices, order status and costs. On the basis of such analyses rapid decisions can be made, procedures can be improved and efficiency of business and production processes can be optimized.

The contract with Saudi Aramco was signed by Siemens Limited Saudi Arabia. Both companies agreed not to disclose any information about the volume of the contract. XHQ is to be supplied by IndX Software Corporation - a Company of the Siemens Group Industrial Solutions and Services (I&S), a leader in the automation of production processes with extensive capability in systems integration. By leveraging XHQ as a standard operations intelligence platform, Saudi Aramco will engage a variety of real-time decision support and real-time performance management applications across many different aspects of their business.

Aramco's deployment of XHQ as the foundation of its Enterprise Management Solution (EMS) compliments its use of SAP's NetWeaver platform. Siemens has developed a comprehensive integration between SAP NetWeaver and the Real Time Operations Intelligence solution. The solution will allow for the seamless integration of business data with enterprise, plant and production-specific data from the world of Siemens in a single information portal. The result is actionable decision support and up-to-date comparison of actual performance versus desired business and operational objectives with the advantage of dynamic, real-time data from deep within plant and supply operations. Critical business processes are visible and can be readily optimized throughout the enterprise.

Dr. Ibrahim Mishari, Saudi Aramco CIO, stated: "Aramco has a culture of embracing innovation. Aramco will be deploying this innovative XHQ solution throughout the company from the wellhead upwards. Using XHQ, Aramco will integrate its production operations with its real-time SAP system for a truly unified real-time enterprise". "This partnership between Aramco and Siemens creates a complete business solution that ranges all the way from the automation and planning levels right up to the corporate management level", commented Joergen Ole Haslestad, President of Siemens Industrial Solutions and Services (I&S).

After extensive evaluation Aramco chose the Siemens solution because of its proven ability to combine business and operational data from multiple sources and serve users throughout the enterprise with role-based content.
