[EBOOK] Operational Excellence Programs at Oil and Gas Companies
Oil and gas companies are no strangers to process and operational excellence. The industry operates in some of the toughest and most politically sensitive places on earth. Any accidents that occur have a high cost in terms of human life and the environment. Meanwhile, the volatility of oil prices means that sky high oil prices won’t mask inefficient operations.
That’s why oil and gas companies have always had to keep a firm eye on how they do what they do. The CEO of Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil states that "at Statoil, the way we deliver is as important as what we deliver."
But with the pursuit of new energy sources such as shale gas and ultra deepwater drilling, pursuing growth opportunities and maintaining safe operations that are both low-cost and efficient are proving to be very challenging.
A successful Operational Excellence program can not only save companies millions in operating costs – it can also enhance business agility, drive innovation, improve regulator and public confidence and help attract and develop world-class talent. But achieving all of those aims is easier said than done. So how are some of the world’s leading oil and gas companies tackling the challenge?
This eBook from the PEX Network compiles information about 7 operational excellence programs at oil and gas companies and includes links to further information and materials. We hope that you find it interesting!
