As the oil and gas industry in Texas continues to experience growth, many petrochemical companies have found that they need new systems to manage their processes. This is where enterprise resource planning (ERP) comes in.
ERP is business management software that is capable of facilitating a whole host of tasks, including product development, manufacturing, inventory and supply chain management. For the oil and gas industry in particular, what is attractive about ERP is its usefulness in managing complex financial and regulatory processes.
After all, the oil and gas industry is highly regulated, and some rules change constantly. ERP software helps petrochemical companies make sense of these requirements and ensure that they are doing whatever is necessary to comply with them.
That is why some of the growing career opportunities in Houston involve ERP-related positions. Analysts are needed to provide system support while tackling problems and keeping an eye on overall progress.
Companies that engage in hydraulic fracturing ('fracking") to extract oil or natural gas have a particular need for ERP, as they are under some of the highest scrutiny as of late. Many people who live near these operations have complained of pollution, especially contaminated water. These companies will need a system that helps them be proactive about managing these potential effects, all while staying in compliance with pertinent regulations. And they will need skilled personnel to help them achieve this with ERP software.
