The U.S. domestic growth, restructuring, deregulation, and corporate consolidations are changing both upstream and strategies and operations. Therefore, the opportunities for supply chain improvements are bringing heightened value creation.

Meeting Your Challenges

New drilling sites, and types such as Shale Gas, bring new supply chain challenges that require new thinking and innovation.
