Cost Optimization Benchmark

Cutting costs is easy, sustainable cost optimization is not so simple

How do you know that you are making the correct cost optimization decisions?

Today’s Challenge

Without a thorough understanding of operational performance, oil and gas managers who are under pressure to improve the bottom line usually have no other recourse but to cut spending in the absence of an evidence-based decision-making rationale. This poses several challenges and risks:

  • Unnecessary spending reductions made with long-term adverse consequences
  • Sub-optimized performance resulting from focusing cuts on efficient performance areas
  • Difficulty in agreeing and justifying decisions made

Your Objectives

The Juran Benchmarking Cost Optimization program allows oil and gas operators to leverage the power of comparative data directly from their industry peers to:

ACHIEVE COST OPTIMIZATION.
REDUCE THE RISK OF INCORRECT DECISION MAKING.
BACK YOUR ROADMAP TO IMPROVEMENT WITH DATA.
