The Value for Oil & Gas Companies to Standardize on Single-Source Seals
Posted on 2017/01/13 | Cliff | IndustriesProcurement for oil and gas projects has become very complex due to growing size, lethal environments, and demanding regulations. Many oil & gas companies now split projects into multiple EPC (Engineering Procurement & Construction) contracts. This can naturally lead to mixing 10 or so different manufacturers’ products with disparate materials and specifications even though they come under the same industry standard. In an industry where safety and performance are critical, this creates a potential quagmire of unmanageable complexity that risks cost-effectiveness, production loss, infrastructure damage, and injuries.
