    Upstream Oil & Gas 

What lies ahead for upstream oil and gas?

Faced with enormous uncertainty, executives across the oil & gas industry are looking for ways to quickly cut costs, reduce CAPEX and protect cash. 

  • The global pandemic has wiped out almost a third of global oil demand
  • Upstream companies have serious concerns about the future availability of offshore work forces and access to ports and other critical infrastructure
  • The rigid nature of the oil and gas industry means it will struggle to change course quickly and minimize the financial impact of the crisis
  • Executives are under enormous pressure to devise a recovery strategy to quickly limit short-term disruption, support recovery in the mid-term, and build greater supply chain agility, resilience and optimization in the longer term 
  • Maine Pointe is helping clients navigate and accelerate through these challenging times with a process of stabilize-recover-rebalance which drives supply chain rationalization and improvement initiatives three times faster than a traditional approach
