Offshore oil and gas is in a race to produce the most competitive barrel of oil. But with dozens of different suppliers and multiple interfaces involved, the process of delivering a well safely, on time and within budget has become more complex for operators than it needs to be.
Every hour spent on a well counts ⎯ there’s a lot to play for.
Smarter Drilling for Better Value is Maersk Drilling’s response.
We provide solutions that plan, orchestrate and integrate the services involved in a drilling campaign. By improving coordination, simplifying interfaces, aligning incentives and using innovative new approaches across the supply chain, we aim to reduce overall non-productive time (NPT), increase efficiency and improve safety for our customers.
It can take over 60 suppliers and 6,000 invoices to drill an offshore well.
"Maersk Drilling is fully committed to reducing well costs for our customers. We see great potential in a deeper collaboration across the industry to eliminate inefficiencies and create joint value."Jørn Madsen
Reducing operator NPT
Non-productive time (NPT) is often 20-25% across all suppliers on a well.
Are North Sea operators walking the talk on supply chain collaboration?
Last week, I was in London at the Oil & Gas Council World Energy Capital Assembly (WECA), speaking on a panel about collaboration and capital efficiency in a new oil world.
With Africa back on the map, smarter drilling is even more necessary
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending Africa Oil Week, possibly the most important conference in our industry on the African continent. It was my first visit to this influential and inspiring event in Cape Town, and I was fortunate to get to moderate a panel on the subjects of “Surviving the Downturn” and “Future Outlooks for West Africa”.
The Time to Act is Now
Recently at the IADC World Drilling Conference, I gave this speech about the opportunities to be found in pairing innovative technologies with new business models to create value.
