Oil, Gas and Energy sector

CIPS Syndicated Corporate Award Oil and Gas programmeProduction and operations in the oil, gas and energy sector are typically high-cost, high-risk and capital-intensive. This makes developing the talent within procurement and supply, and effectively identifying and managing risk in the supply chain, crucial to optimising performance  which is vital to meeting future energy needs.

This is an industry that depends heavily on an extensive supply chain and operates within an ever-more competitive and volatile market.
