CygNet Software Continues Robust Pace of Adoption by Oil and Gas Leaders

More Than Half of North American Gas Production Data Runs Through CygNet; Leading Gas E&P Operators Southwestern Energy and Williams Production Represent Recent Additions

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - CygNet Software, provider of the leading enterprise operations platform for the oil and gas industry, announced today that the company has completed another record year, putting it further along the track to becoming the de facto industry standard for operational information across the enterprise. CygNet's robust pace of industry adoption has been fueled by both existing clients increasing their total number of enterprise users, as well as by newly signed companies such as Southwestern Energy and Williams Production.

With the addition of several new customers in 2009, CygNet now boasts more than 100 enterprise customers, including half of the top 20 gas producers across North America and several of the leading pipeline companies that transport product to market. Furthermore, CygNet is the only Enterprise Operations Platform deployed on the desktop of more than 9,000 oil and gas industry personnel, comprising a wide range of operational managers, business executives, marketing experts and financial planners.

By standardizing their SCADA and other operational data on the CygNet Enterprise Operations Platform (EOP), including data originating in the field, as well as data from other operational systems, these organizations are driving down costs, boosting productivity and enhancing the effectiveness of their workforce.

"With the industry responding to dynamics that are changing at an unprecedented pace, every oil and gas company is striving to accomplish operational efficiency, while also positioning itself to face the unknown challenges of tomorrow's energy market. This high-pressure environment requires rapid access to the most current information presented in a way that's immediately consumable for decision-making," said Chris Smith, CEO of CygNet Software. "Our deep penetration with many of the leading operators has been a valuable contributor in positioning us as the de facto industry standard for turning enterprise operations data into relevant business information."
