Upstream

Maximizing assets, output and profit

Technology advances are helping upstream leaders address a wide range of challenges, including fluctuating supply and demand, aging assets, a shortage of skilled workers, increased regulation, safety and security risks, environmental protection and more. At the same time, new and evolving technologies, including smart, digital, big data, mobile, cloud and others are creating greater opportunities to explore and exploit new reserves, compete for existing reserves, boost productivity and reduce costs.

CGI has developed a large portfolio of technology services and solutions that are driving improvements across the entire upstream exploration and production life cycle. We partner with upstream clients around the world to maximize their assets, output and profit through a combination of deep technology and upstream business expertise.
