Leading Design Institute Focused on Oil and Gas Industry Gets Unlimited Access to Entire ELS Software Portfolio for Fixed Annual Fee

Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that TyumenNIIgiprogas (TNGG), a leading design institute in Western Siberia specializing in the oil and gas industry, has joined Bentley’s Enterprise License Subscription (ELS) program. TNGG is a subsidiary of Russia-based Gazprom, the world’s largest gas company focused on the geological exploration, production, transmission, storage, processing, and marketing of gas and other hydrocarbons. Bentley’s ELS program grants organizations unlimited access to the entire ELS software portfolio for a fixed annual fee. The portfolio covers all the architectural, engineering, construction (AEC) and geospatial software needs of subscribers, providing building, plant, civil, and geospatial solutions and supporting a managed environment for their AEC and geospatial IT. The total coverage at a fixed, discounted price means that organizations can increase their software productivity and reduce their total AEC and geospatial software costs simultaneously. The unlimited access streamlines software administration while the annual term simplifies budgeting and accounting.

“We have long relied on Bentley’s solutions for our gas treatment unit design work and have always been impressed by our return on these technology investments,” said Georgiy Krylov, general director, TNGG. “Our use of Bentley’s integrated portfolio of software has resulted in streamlined workflows, increased productivity, and improved quality of our finished projects.”

Krylov continued, “Our need for easier and more cost-effective access to a wider array of advanced software solutions continues to grow with our business, and this is the chief reason why we have joined Bentley’s ELS program. Our project teams look forward to taking full advantage of Bentley’s comprehensive portfolio to meet their project objectives and drive further increases in productivity for the entire organization – helping sustain our business success and setting the stage for even more accelerated growth in the future.”

As a strategic benefit, Bentley’s ELS helps organizations such as TNGG become more agile. Project starts can happen faster and teams can reconfigure more quickly for new opportunities. No-charge pilots allow new technology to be infused into projects more readily. ELS agreements can include partners, extending the agility and multiplying the benefits in global projects.
