BP, one of the world's largest oil and gas companies, has awarded 5-year contracts to technology firms Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, Wipro and IBM for applications outsourcing and technology support, the four firms said in separate statements.

The four companies, however, did not disclose financial details of the deals.

As part of the deal, IBM will manage and run the oil giant's enterprise applications and integrated service desk responsibilities, the IBM statement said.

Tata Consultancy Services today said it has been selected as a strategic IT vendor by BP.

"I've been very pleased with the quality of TCS' proposal and to have selected them as one of our strategic ADAM vendors. In awarding TCS our refining, manufacturing and corporate IT maintenance work we look to benefit from their knowledge of the Oil and Gas sector. Additionally we see opportunities for TCS to help us deliver IT solutions to enable our upstream and trading businesses. This contract will help BP to reduce complexity, standardise processes and lower our overall cost base," TCS quoted Dana Deasy, BP Group CIO, as saying.

Infosys Technologies will manage and operate a large portion of business systems for BP
