Capital-intensive projects like those of the oil and gas sector often run on tight budgets and tighter scheduling. Contract negotiations, equipment purchases, and staffing decisions are all made with the deadline and bottom line in mind. Likewise, proper management of materials can mean the difference between smooth and efficient construction and operation or a bevy of delays and cost increases.
Exploration and production projects are often focusing on more remote and challenging areas of operation. Refining and processing infrastructure must meet higher demands than those of past projects. Collaborative projects involve, and often risk, the scheduling and budgets of multiple organizations. With so many variables already in play, thorough materials management is more important than ever.
