Strategic Challenges in the Oil and Gas Industry

  • Shareholder pressures for consistent and reliable returns
  • Competitor takeover threats and competitor mergers
  • Inability to strategically and tactically respond to global risks and competition
  • Aging plants, facilities, infrastructure, and technology
  • New and emerging technology and capital investment costs
  • Hydrocarbon supply chain disruptions
  • Inconsistent data to inform decisions: asset life-cycle management, capital management, planning, and forecasting
  • Inability to improve on benchmarking ranking studies
  • Knowledge and information silos that create conflict between internal strategic, operations, manufacturing and sales, and marketing divisions. They also impede clear communication with external vendors and partners.
