CygNet Software First to Combine SCADA and GIS Information for the Oil and Gas Industry

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 13, 2009 -- CygNet Software, provider of the leading enterprise operations platform for the oil and gas industry, today announced CygNet 7.2, a major upgrade of CygNet's enterprise operations platform. With this release, CygNet is the first company to combine geographic information system (GIS) and asset management information with its operational SCADA module. This integration has been developed to ensure both systems maintain their individual system of record status, thus avoiding costly data replication processes. Release 7.2 also improves the methods of and performance for accessing and storing the massive amounts of data generated by oil and gas companies.

The CygNet platform is currently used by more than 100 leading companies across oil and gas exploration, production, and gas transportation to improve operational efficiency and market responsiveness. Based on a proven, revolutionary network architecture, users across every business function can prioritize and analyze massive amounts of real-time and historical information to support daily operations, strategic decision making, and regulatory reporting requirements.

"By using resources more efficiently and optimizing their physical assets, oil and gas companies can increase production and lower costs, which in turn creates greater shareholder value," said Chris Smith, chief executive officer of CygNet Software. "Our platform supports these efforts by collecting and aggregating data from diverse field and business systems, then delivering contextually relevant, real-time information to every corner of the enterprise. CygNet ensures oil and gas companies can provide the right information to the right people at the right time."

About CygNet 7.2

CygNet 7.2 is the oil and gas industry's most advanced solution for collecting, managing, and distributing data. CygNet enables organizations to increase operational efficiency and improve business decisions by turning raw data collected from diverse systems and devices into actionable information.

The CygNet platform ensures reliability across a geographically diverse organization, by leveraging the same network-centric architecture found in today's high-bandwidth video and imaging applications, known for consistently delivering massive amounts of data to various systems and end-user clients.

CygNet 7.2 delivers significant enhancements including:

 -- CygNet GIS Control -- CygNet 7.2 integrates the ESRI ArcGIS toolset,
    creating a single platform that consolidates GIS-based asset
    management, SCADA data, and information from core business
    applications. CygNet 7.2 eliminates the disconnected silos of data
    that resulted in redundant data collection, decisions based on limited
    information, and lengthy manual data analysis that was typically dated
    by the time it was completed.

    By integrating GIS mapping capabilities with facilities and equipment
    monitoring and threshold alarms, CygNet 7.2 enables companies to
    analyze historical trends, react to current conditions, assess the
    true business value of each asset, and make real-time business
    decisions to improve profitability.

    ESRI ArcGIS is built on a scalable, high-performance platform. Oil and
    gas companies can use ArcGIS data for source and physical pipeline
    management, outage management, emergency response, gas distribution,
    network operation, planning and research, sales, engineering, and

 -- Enhanced Historical Data Management and Visualization -- Enhanced
    Historical Database recovery enables immediate access to near-term
    operational data while allowing the import of longer term data in the

    New capability in the area of data analysis and intelligent
    compression limit the repetitive data values stored in the historian,
    therefore ensuring both data quality and performance.

    Both enhanced and new functionality provide seamless access to analyze
    and correlate historical data via charting and trending tools, as well
    as provision to third party applications and tools.

 -- More Efficient Field Data Transmission -- Enhanced GMR (Gas
    Measurement Repository) replication eliminates network connectivity
    issues and makes electronic flow measurement data collection and
    distribution more reliable and efficient, ensuring business users
    automatically have timely access to the most relevant, up-to-date
    field data.
