Brazilian oil company signs agreement to streamline software deployment and reduce costs

HOUSTON (Oct. 30, 2019) - Emerson (NYSE: EMR) announced today it has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar agreement with Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras), the Brazilian integrated energy company, for managed hosting services to support Petrobras' deepwater operations. These services streamline deployment of Emerson's leading exploration and development software by providing high-performance, remote desktop data management capabilities for both office and field locations, freeing Petrobras IT staff to focus on improving business processes and services.

'We've valued our long and positive relationship with Petrobras, helping to optimize exploration and subsurface modeling activities,' said Somesh Singh, chief product officer for exploration and production software at Emerson Automation Solutions. 'Deepwater operations involve unmatched complexity, and our goal is to implement Emerson solutions to streamline workflows, simplify the delivery and management of the oil and gas software environment while boosting productivity.'

Under the terms of this agreement, Emerson will provide dedicated servers and associated hardware infrastructure to Petrobras and manage those systems on its behalf. All access for data management, configuration and optimization is done remotely according to the needs of the customer.

Petrobras has been using Emerson's exploration and production software for over 25 years, including solutions for interpretation and modeling, reservoir characterization, formation evaluation and seismic processing. These technologies allow Petrobras to increase efficiencies, reduce costs and improve geoscientists' understanding of the subsurface.
