Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL)
Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) is one of the pioneer exploration and production (E&P) companies in Pakistan oil and gas sector. On behalf of the Government of Pakistan (GoP), the Privatisation Commission (PC) is proceeding with a strategic sale of 51% shareholding in PPL along with transfer of management control. Merrill Lynch International and KASB Securities (Pvt.) Ltd. (KASB) have been appointed as the Financial Advisor (FA) for the strategic sale. In July 2004, the GoP successfully concluded an offer for sale and initial public offering of 15% shares of PPL on the domestic stock exchanges. The PC invited Expressions of Interests (“EOIs”) from interested parties on February 17, 2005. The Parties submitting EOIs were requested to submit and Statements of Qualifications (“SoQs”) by April 30, 2005 whereby eleven parties submitted SoQs to the Privatisation Commission. Six parties were pre-qualified to continue to the next stage of the privatisation process. As of August 2006 three pre-qualified parties were ready to proceed for the bidding. However, the privatisation process is being reviewed in the light of the Supreme Court's judgment in the Pakistan Steel Mills case.
PPL was incorporated in June 1950 with the Burmah Oil Company (renamed Burmah Castrol) and GoP as its principal shareholders. After more than 50 years of successful operations PPL continues to be a prominent E&P player in Pakistan with:

PPL CORPORATION OPTIMIZES OPERATIONS AND REDUCES COST
Dramatic Savings and Efficiencies Delivered By Improving the Procurement and Sourcing Processes
Deregulation has created new markets for energy companies while intensifying competition. To succeed in this environment, PPL Corporation needed to cut overhead costs and improve efficiency with their warehousing operations. Key to achieving this objective was implementing a mobile computing solution that integrated with Ventyx Asset Suite so the picking and cycle counting processes could be performed electronically. In addition, dramatic savings and efficiencies were envisioned by improving the procurement and sourcing processes. PPL wanted to implement a strategic sourcing program that would automate timeconsuming and costly processes and leverage the advantages of an emarketplace. As part of this program, it would re-source both direct and indirect goods, totaling about $600 million in its US operations, and then expand the program to the rest of its global operations.
The Business Need:
For success in this new world of competition, PPL Corporation focused on reducing costs, improving resource allocation and optimizing efficiency throughout its warehouse facilities. These facilities service PPL Corporation’s gas distribution businesses, electric transmission and distribution operations, nuclear generating station in Pennsylvania and two generating stations in Montana. For this strategy to succeed, PPL Corporation implemented Asset Suite (formerly known as PassPort), a comprehensive suite of asset management applications from Ventyx, to manage the maintenance, repair and operations as well as inventory activities at its warehouses. The warehouses and outside yards, some of which total more than 100,000 square feet, store more than 80,000 catalog identification numbers (CIDs), with inventory ranging from generating station replacement parts to wiring, monitoring instruments and transformers.
ABOUT PPL CORPORATION Headquartered in Allentown, PA, PPL controls more than 11,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the United States, sells energy in key U.S. markets, and delivers electricity to about 4 million customers in Pennsylvania and the United Kingdom. PPL has adopted an integrated corporate strategy to generate and sell competitively priced energy in key U.S. markets and operate high-quality energy delivery businesses in selected regions around the world.

VENTYX SUCCESS STORY www.ventyx.com | 1-800-868-0497 2
PPL’s goal was to drive supply chain excellence across fossil fuel, nuclear,
hydro and natural gas facilities in the Americas and Europe. PPL determined that to continue to be successful, they needed to focus not just on cost reduction opportunities, but also on improved resource allocation and operating efficiencies within their warehouse operations. Simultaneously, PPL wanted to use their membership in the Enporion e-Marketplace as a vehicle to further reduce administrative, sourcing and procurement demands. It was also PPL’s goal to minimize the number of products with custom integration activities that would need long-term support, off-setting many of the potential gains. PPL relied upon Asset Suite as the single point of contact for both of these opportunities.
The Key Insight & Projected Benefits:
The utility industry has become increasingly focused on improved cost management while at the same time seeking new opportunities for cost reduction. Reducing the administrative costs associated with sourcing and procurement operations has become a key focus at PPL. Maverick spending was proven to be a significant drain on the organization and negotiated costs saving contracts were not being utilized, further contributing to the problem. PPL decided to focus on two areas within their supply chain as they sought new cost management opportunities, turning to Ventyx for assistance from the Asset Suite solution and the Professional Services group. At the same time, it was believed that there were improvements that could be made in the existing warehouse and yard operations. With over 100,000 square feet and over 80,000 catalog ID numbers, PPL realized that a mobile computing solution, integrated with the existing Asset Suite system, would enable the picking and cycle counting activities to be performed in a completely electronic manner.
The Solution & Recognized Benefits:
PPL Corporation launched a three-year plan to implement Asset Suite at its warehouses in Pennsylvania and Montana. Asset Suite enables workers to pick items and perform cycle counting at the same time, thereby improving productivity and saving time. It also updates inventory levels in real-time and provides workers with total visibility of inventory at all its warehouses. The implementation was completed ahead of schedule due to its ease of use and tight integration. Benefits gained include: • Decreased time to pick items by works by up to one-third • Improved on-time picks to 98.89 percent from 64 percent prior to the implementation of Asset Suite • Overhead costs decreased by 20 percent • Improved inventory turns to new levels of efficiency VENTYX SUCCESS STORY www.ventyx.com | 1-800-868-0497 3 With the size and complexity of this warehouse infrastructure, PPL Corporation realized mobile computing was essential to further improving productivity and operational efficiency. In 1999, PPL Corporation implemented the Ventyx mobile computing solution, and has achieved further benefits from Asset Suite. “It was a burning platform here,” said John DeFluri, Manager of Warehouse Operations. “We had to quickly improve our usage of resources to compete successfully in this new deregulated environment. We installed Ventyx mobile solutions to enhance our Asset Suite system in order to survive and thrive in this new deregulated environment.”
Ventyx is a leading business solutions provider, delivering asset management, mobile workforce management, customer care, energy trading and risk management, energy operations, and energy analytics solutions to more than 900 energy, utility and communications customers, as well as to asset-intensive customers in selected commercial markets.

Pakistan Petroleum Limited is the oldest and largest Exploration and Production Company in the country was incorporated on 5th June 1950 subsequent to the promulgation of the Pakistan Petroleum Production Rules, 1949 with the main objective of conducting exploration, development and production of Pakistan's oil and natural gas resources. PPL inherited all the assets and liabilities of the Burmah Oil Company (Pakistan Concessions) Limited and commenced business on 1st July 1952. PPL and its ex-parent Burmah Oil Company have been active in the subcontinent since the early part of the 20th century. A total of 239 wells including 65 exploratory and 174 appraisal / development wells have so far been drilled which resulted in the discovery of about 19.90 Tcf gas (both operated and nonoperated leases). A gas condensate/oil field at Adhi with original recoverable reserves of 1,253 MT liquefied Petroleum Gas and 39.4 MMbbl of oil/condensate was also discovered by PPL. The Company also operates a Baryte mine in Balochistan province. It produces oil well drilling grade Baryte powder from the mine, which has proven reserves of 1.25 million tones. For the year 2004-05, PPL's share of average production from its operated and non-operated fields was 953 MMcfd of gas, 1,372 bpd of oil/NGL and 26 tones per day of LPG. Production of gas from these fields meets about 25.1% of the country's indigenous production. The gas, LPG and NGL production from PPL operated and non-operated fields for the year 2004-05 in terms of oil equivalent, was about 171,205 barrels of crude oil per day. The Company has a staff of about 2520 as at 31 May, 2006 employees with about 431 qualified technical staff in the fields of engineering, computer and earth sciences. PPL has well established IT department and all staff in the Head Office has access to computers and are interconnected through Local Area Network (LAN). The Wide Area Network (WAN) has also been established connecting PPL's three major producing fields and Regional Office in Islamabad with the Head Office at Karachi. The Company has implemented SAP in 2004 integrating core business processes using Costing, Finance, Human Resources, Materials Management, Plant maintenance and Project Systems modules. The Government of Pakistan (GoP) in September 1997 purchased the entire equity interest of Burmah Castrol PLC, formerly Burmah Oil Company, in the Company (comprising 21 million ordinary shares of Rs.10 each) representing 63.91 percent of the Share Capital thereby increasing its holding in the Company to 93.35 percent. Subsequent to June 2004, the GoP has disinvested a portion of its equity in the Company equivalent to 15% of the paid up share capital of (i.e. 102.873 million shares of Rs.10 each) through an Initial Public Offering (IPO). The GoP has made a policy decision to privatize PPL and IPO is a significant step towards this direction. A consortium led by Merrill Lynch International and KASB securities (Pvt) Limited have been appointed by the Privatization Commission (PC) as the Financial Advisor (FA) for the strategic sale of GoP's 51 % interest in the company. Five (5) parties were prequalified as potential bidders for the transaction. The Government of Pakistan continues to pursue the privatization process through sale of its majority interest in the Company to a strategic investor and remains committed to proceed with the transaction with a view to concluding the process at an early date. LEADING THE WAY Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL), the pioneer of the natural gas industry in the country, has been a frontline player on the exploration and production sector for well over five decades. The company follows an aggressive strategy to not only maximize production but also replenish existing reserves and venture into untapped areas. Today, PPL contributes around 26 percent of the country's total natural gas production besides producing crude oil/ Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). Starting out concurrently with the first major gas discovery at Sui in 1952, PPL now operates four producing fields at Sui, Kandhkot, Adhi and Mazarani and holds working interest in seven partneroperated producing fields. PPL’s exploration portfolio comprises 24 exploration blocks, including four that are offshore. On June 30, 2008, the company’s hydrocarbon reserves stood at approximately 3.71 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, 23.3 million barrels of oil/NGL and 321,000 tonnes of LPG. RECENT INITIATIVES In pursuance of its corporate vision, PPL has stepped up efforts to increase hydrocarbon production to keep pace with Pakistan’s growing energy needs. To this end, it has devised a dynamic exploration and development strategy, focusing on enhancing its reserve-replenishment ratio, drilling-to-discovery ratio
