Project X

Managing data in the oil and gas industry

Oil & Gas


Oil & Gas

As a prominent Malaysian energy conglomerate with operations spanning over 100 countries, our client's business necessitates extensive collaboration with numerous industry partners. Hence, there was a pressing need to consolidate all pertinent data and information. Shortcut Asia partnered with the region’s leading geospatial data company to develop a dashboard that encourages data sharing among all the O&G stakeholders, improving the decision making process and reducing inefficiencies in operating procedures.

The challenge

There was a lack of a comprehensive and user-friendly platform for accessing Malaysia’s Exploration and Production (E&P) data, which hindered data-driven decision-making.


The web app was designed in a way that caters to the oil and gas (O&G) industry, prioritizing user-friendliness, mobile accessibility, easy navigation, custom-branded UI, and a professional user interface. It was designed to instill trust and familiarity, ensuring a valuable and credible tool for O&G industry players.

Backend process

Redis Queue was selected to run background tasks and scheduled jobs, reducing the main server’s load and increase its ability to handle requests.

With Microsoft Azure being selected to host the entire platform, capacity is not an issue. The platform is able to scale according to demand.
