Project Description
Project ONE is a key component of the transformation.

There are currently three transformation initiatives underway in E&P: Structure, Culture and Process.

Exploration and Production (E&P) has formed a team called Project ONE to deploy the processes and systems transformation for the entire E&P organization. This project incorporates the SAP Transformation Program and Project COBRA (Company Organization and Business Re-Alignment).

Project ONE’s scope encompasses both the simultaneous establishment of a new instance of SAP, based on industry best practices and standard business processes, and the implementation of COBRA, a two-phase project to realize the legal entity structure of the domestic upstream assets and the marketing of crude oil, condensates, NGLs and natural gas.

The project will address both near-term business objectives and help us advance in our Operational Excellence Journey and our long-term 2020 goal to become best performing energy investment by:
• providing real-time business insight
• driving operational efficiencies
• streamlining business processes
• and sharpening our competitive edge
With this in mind, one of the E&P “Must Dos” for 2013 is to deliver Release 1 of the processes and systems transformation (including COBRA) for North Dakota. After the first release, the team will deploy the processes and systems transformation to the rest of the E&P organization.

Project ONE success depends on the engagement and alignment of the entire organization:

• One solution, that is business led, globally applicable and best in class
