QUALITY MANAGEMENT FOR OIL & GAS
From discovery through delivery, oil and gas companies must comply with environmental, health and safety, carbon emissions, and other sustainability-related mandates. At the same time, governments across the globe are constantly tightening regulations and refining industry standards. Staying on top of all this, while managing the quality of complex processes, supplier relationships and experimenting with the latest technology is very challenging. Quality management in oil & gas is critical.
The three elements of the oil and gas value chain—upstream, midstream, and downstream—have their own strict set of quality controls and compliance requirements. Each could not exist independent of one another, and performance in the early phases of the value chain is a leading indicator of the quality of the final product.
Suppliers are held accountable for upholding standards per ISO 29001, but their ability to communicate performance and provide visibility downstream is limited by their supporting technology.
