Performance that is significant. Measurable. Sustainable.
In all asset intensive industries but particularly in Oil & Gas and Energy companies, equipment availability is the most significant operational value driver. Maintenance efficiency and work-flow effectiveness are critical to achieving the right levels of reliability and operational stability. The fact is that in today’s high demand / high price environment no LNG (liquified natural gas) plant, refinery operation or other downstream energy players can afford to have anything but minimum levels of planned downtime and definitely no unplanned outages.
A common response is to throw money at the problem by buying more spares or employing more workers or contractors in order to react quicker. However, these actions treat the symptoms, not the root causes. To continue to be critical players in the energy independence vision all energy players must ensure “best in class” performance in everything from turnarounds, capital project execution, reliability, integrated logistics to maintenance.
Running plant operations with minimal waste and high reliability. Spending the right amount, on the right things to maximize asset returns. Not to mention keeping costs competitive is our ultimate “True North” with clients.
Our team of industry experts understand the best way to transform operations and sustain performance is through implementation of a Continuous Improvement culture and a drive towards excellence throughout the complete value chain. Many times, clients have a sense of what needs to be done but knowing where to start, how to start, how to change the culture and what is critically important to ensure success, is something else altogether.
