Azerbaijan: SOCAR (State Oil Company of Azerbaijan) considered the proposal of Integris Company on the introduction of GIS in the oil and gas companies. The main purpose of the GIS application in SOCAR is the application of distance learning information of natural and human resources. Presently, the department of environmental monitoring and environmental management of the SOCAR consider the possibility of introducing digital photogrammetry to create the orthophotography and cartography in the SOCAR enterprises.
A significant extension and territorial distribution of responsible objects (pipelines, pumping stations, oil depots and other) is characteristic for oil and gas enterprises. For effective management information about the spatial position of objects within the information system becomes necessary. Application of GIS systems allows to effectively ensure the collection, storage, processing spatial information, integration, the use of spatial data for supporting decision-making.
