CGI Wins $14M IT Modernization Contract from the Texas Railroad Commission

CGICGI Group has been awarded a $13.9 million contract by Texas’ oil and gas regulators for its information technology modernization program that aims to provide automated processes, tools and data.

The Railroad Commission of Texas has chosen CGI to integrate web-based data exchange and permission applications, expedite permit turnaround time and increase customer self-service opportunities, CGI said Thursday.

Milton Rister, Railroad Commission of Texas executive director, said the modernization program will equip the commission with the latest computer technology that will work to help provide “the industry with clear and consistent rules needed for public safety and the protection of our state’s natural resources.”

CGI has worked with more than 10 state regulatory agencies including Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

“Our goal is to help the Commission use data and information to fuel a wide variety of high productivity permitting and compliance operations,” said Sergio Rodriguez, CGI vice president and Texas account executive.

The Railroad Commission regulates the Texas oil and gas industry.
