No longer can we afford to employ $100.00/bbl methodologies and ad hoc technology tools to plan, manage, and control shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages in the upstream oil & gas industry (or any manufacturing sector for that matter). Why? Well, not only are many of them outdated, most are ineffective, requiring more resources, time, expenses, and effort to manage. Something we can no longer justify at $40.00/bbl.
Through recent economic challenges—the financial boom and bust cycles brought on by war, debt, inflation, and cartel decisions—we’re witnessing drastic changes in how Organizations manages their operations to remain competitive and profitable. Reaction ranges anywhere from corporate downsizing to facility decommissioning, to the implementation of lean manufacturing opportunities for day-to-day operations and most recently for the execution of shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages—a decision requiring strategic co-innovation.
