S. C. Petrom S.A. Rolls Out InterPlan Systems’ Project Planning Solution Across All Refineries

Houston, TX — Oct. 9, 2006 – InterPlan Systems Inc., today announced that Petrom, the largest Romanian oil and gas company, is deploying InterPlan Systems’ eTaskMaker project planning software across all of its refineries. The rollout will provide the technology framework to create standard processes for estimating, planning and scheduling all maintenance projects across the organization.

Petrom had previously used a variety of business processes for planning project work, including manual, non-computerized efforts. However, the company has committed itself to enforcing standardized business processes in order to improve best practices and its competitive edge. Overhauling planning and estimating processes was considered crucial to the success of this initiative, and after evaluating solutions from several leading vendors, Petrom opted for InterPlan Systems’ powerful planning tools.

“Organizations like Petrom have positioned themselves for success by seeking out leading edge technology that enables their workforce to work smarter,” said Bernard Ertl, Vice President of InterPlan Systems. “InterPlan looks forward to helping Petrom achieve improved standardization and best practices that will contribute to real competitive gains.”

The rollout is being handled by Petrom’s own internal group, with training assistance from ECC/STOP Management B.V., an InterPlan Systems’ alliance partner serving the European market.
