The factors affecting the environment and the natural resources due to the oil industry development were highlighted. The GIS applicati ons and functionalities enable efficient management of oil production processe s and environmental assessments. GIS can help in investigating the factors of weakness and success of the oil industry and those influencing the environment and its management. GIS also provides sufficient spatial data and flexibility of work in the oil field with the possibility of incorporating environmental changes and in fluences in oil exploration plans, programs and projects. This paper presents the role of GIS as a tool and illustrates its applications in the oil field management. The paper also outlined GIS experiences in Sudan and its capabilities for handling spatial dat a and remotely sensed materials, with reference to surface features management in the oil production fields of Greater Nile Petroleum Company (GNPOC) in Sudan
