Talanza’s oil and gas regtech solution

Oil and Gas activities are heavily regulated and regulations are reviewed and updated constantly increasing the risk profile for upstream operations.

The mismanagement of regulatory compliance forces operators to allocate high-skilled employees to compliance management.

To solve this, Talanza Energy has developed the first RegTech solution for managing effectively the complex regulatory compliance challenge.

Regulatory compliance is a moving target challenge mainly on earlier stages of its implementation. Operators have to deal with hundreds of obligations, before several different authorities and under a complex legal and regulatory framework.

Long-term contracts will easily require over a thousand interactions between government and operators.
