Every year Oracle awards several customers with the Oracle Sustainability Innovation Award. This award recognizes customers that are embracing environmental initiatives as a central part of their businesses and leveraging technology to support those efforts. As a way of sharing some of the best green business practices of these award-winning organizations, I would like to share some of their stories. For today’s blog, I will focus on KMG Rompetrol.
KMG Rompetrol is a major player in the Black Sea and Mediterranean oil and gas market, operating large refineries and gas stations in Romania, and also provides well services in the upstream area. With the company’s continued growth, reaching historical production levels the previous year, it was looking to reduce its IT infrastructure costs and increase scalability while continuing to decrease its environmental footprint.
By migrating its Oracle E-Business Suite applications from a rented datacenter to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure KMG Rompetrol reduced its infrastructure and operational costs, increased application performance, and minimized energy consumption, greatly contributing to its sustainable development goals. KMG Rompetrol decreased its power usage by more than 4,500 kilowatt hours (kWh) per month, a 20 percent reduction, by moving to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Oracle Cloud Platform—considerably lowering greenhouse gas emissions. This was a central focus of Rompetrol’s strategy as a key player in the European oil and gas business. In addition, KMG Rompetrol eliminated capital expenditures for IT infrastructure and reduced its operational costs by US$35,000 per year—including expenses for hosting, hardware maintenance, and server administration.
We applaud KMG Rompetrol for taking an environmental lead as well as reducing its costs and improving business efficiencies using green business practices.
