The need for operational excellence (OPEX) in the oil and gas industry is not a new trend, with companies talking about it for years.
OPEX, however, remains a somewhat vague goal as different organizations come at it from different angles, aware that they need to reduce costs, improve efficiency and enhance customer experience.
