London, February 25 2002 - Projectplace Ltd, the leading internet business
service provider for project collaboration in Europe, today announced that
Enterprise Oil, one of the world's leading independent oil and gas
exploration company, has chosen to use the project collaboration service to
enhance communications efficiency between equity partners across a series of
global projects.

Enterprise Oil reassessed their collaboration requirements when the
incumbent tool became unable to cope with the increased demands upon it.
Enterprise needed a new tool which allowed documents to be stored in a
central location, whilst being accessible by project members instantly and
from anywhere in the world. Projectplace provided the solution.

John Keeble, Head of Knowledge Management Worldwide at Enterprise Oil
comments, "Collaborative working is a crucial feature of the oil and gas
industry. It is paramount that our teams are able to exchange information
flexibly and effectively in order to ensure projects and tasks meet
deadlines. Projectplace not only provided us with this facility, but also
allowed us to conduct our working practices with the utmost security by
allowing only invited parties into the virtual workspace."

John continues, "A core element of our business is the responsibility to
provide our partners with visibility on all aspects of a project, from
budgets and operational strategy through to daily messaging. Projectplace
makes this all possible. It is vital for project members to be confident
that the documents they are viewing, are the most recent and up-to-date
versions - saving time in administration and inaccuracies during the
project. I am confident our partners will reap the benefits of this
collaborative technology."

"Projectplace provides greater continuity and efficiency towards all areas
of project management. Organisations globally, especially in the oil and gas
arena, are embracing web-based solutions in order to achieve effective
communications which are cost-efficient and time-saving," said Dak
Liyanearachchi, Managing Director of Projectplace Ltd. "With this new
addition to our customer portfolio we are taking the lead in providing
collaborative services to this market sector."

The business concept of Projectplace is to provide a global pay-per-use
web-based application service for professional project collaboration.
Projectplace enables team members to share document and files, schedule
meetings, carry out project scheduling with to-do items and time charts,
hold online discussions etc. The service makes it possible to create
virtual teams, communicate securely independent of geographic distance and
also enables the project member to constantly be updated of what is
happening in the project.
