F17 - Innovation & Partnerships in Supply Chains

Sustainable, reliable, secure and cost-effective supply of materials, equipment, technology and services is critical for the oil and gas industry. The greening of the supply chain can promote sustainability and transparency. Relationships between sustainability and value creation will be a key issue to be tackled over the long term resulting in new business relationships with demonstrable sustainable strategies. Sustainable procurement considers the whole life cost of goods through Life Cycle Assessment, to ensure it is economical in a comprehensive manner rather than basing decisions primarily on price, quality and time. The forum will also look at new local content policies which are being introduced in many countries adding complexity and creating new business models for the oil and gas industry to secure the supply of energy required for the next decades.
