The Unconventionals Benchmark enables producers to see their OPEX, LOE & CAPEX performance from an external perspective and to optimize their operations.

THE UNCONVENTIONAL OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY IS MORE VOLATILE THAN EVER.  HOW DO YOU ADAPT TO SURVIVE?

 

Cutting costs is the name of the game across the North American shale plays. But how do you know where to cut costs that do not impact on your future viability? Improving operational competitiveness, efficiency and productivity while maintaining overall effectiveness has never been more important. However, achieving this presents significant challenges, including:

 

  1. Reliably identifying the specific areas where there are opportunities to improve
  2. Missing opportunities for cost reductions through inaccurate target setting
  3. Inability to objectively justify plans and decisions to stakeholders

ACHIEVE OPERATIONAL COST COMPETITIVENESS & EFFICIENCY

Total Cost Competitiveness & Efficiency analysed through four key areas contributing to the Lease Operating Expense:

  • Well Maintenance and Workovers
  • Operations including Water Handling and Chemicals
  • Gathering, Processing and Transportation
  • Energy Consumption

OPTIMIZE YOUR WORKFORCE

Personnel costs and staffing levels including:

  • Field Personnel
  • Support Personnel
  • Third Parties

BECOME A PACESETTER IN OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS

Focus on:

  • Production Efficiency
  • Maintenance Management
  • Well Reliability
  • Equipment Reliability & Availability
