Course Description


Many improvement initiatives fail due to a fragmented approach to the alignment and execution of practitioner activities. Operational Excellence (Op Ex) supports the drive for sustainable profitability and growth within your organisation by adopting a holistic approach to improvement.   Operational excellence can help oil and gas companies leverage their strengths by continually improving processes, driving out costs, and paving the way for the low carbon future.

Studies within the Oil and Gas Industry have reported that world class operators enjoy a range of benefits including higher facility reliability, lower maintenance costs, reduced safety incidents and an increase in utilisation of staff on value adding activities. Those operators who can successfully harness the power of continuous improvement will emerge competitive in tomorrow’s shifting landscape and secure the future of global energy.

This Operational Excellence training course in the Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Industry will equip you with the knowledge, skills and behavioural competencies required to support an Operational Excellence programme and contribute significantly to the bottom line of your organisation, reducing variation, defects, cycle times, lead times, waste, and costs within your operations.
