By its very definition - 'a way of saving money, or of spending less money' - cost efficiency is still the name of the game to aid recovery in the oil and gas sector.
Oil & Gas UK recently reported:
• The cost of oil and gas operations on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) has more than doubled over the last five years.
• No other basin in the world has seen such rapid cost inflation and the UKCS is now the most expensive province in which to operate.
• The basin is spending more than it earns. It had significant cost challenges when oil was at $110 per barrel, but with the oil price collapse the scale of the issue has escalated.
• At the end of 2014, almost 20 per cent of production was loss making at a $50 oil price and over the year, that loss amounted to more than £4 billion across the basin.
• There needs to be an urgent, structural reduction in the industry’s operating costs to place the industry on a more secure footing.
Since the rapid decline in oil price, every operator and producer has been tasked with ensuring efficiency savings are being made across the industry.
