In today's low-price environment, responding to changing demand with the right capacity, quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively, can make or break profitability. This creates even more imperative for oil and gas companies to build more efficient, cost-effective oil and gas supply chains. With this in mind, OGSC will feature a high-level, two-day program devoted to knowledge sharing and best practices in oil and gas supply chain management.
