Flevy Management Insights: Petroleum

Despite constant shifts in the energy market, the petroleum industry remains a major force in the global economy. As Rex Tillerson, former CEO of ExxonMobil, once said, "The world will continue to rely on oil and gas as the largest component of its energy mix through 2040."

For effective implementation, take a look at these Petroleum best practices:

Strategic Agility in the Petroleum Industry

Strategic Agility, or the ability to quickly and effectively respond to market changes, is paramount in the petroleum industry. This has become particularly significant in light of recent global events such as the Covid-19 pandemic and the accelerating shift to renewable energy sources.

A report from McKinsey reveals that in times of crisis, companies that prioritize Strategic Agility see an average EBITDA margin that is 3-4% higher than companies that do not. That’s why oil companies must make agility a core component of their business model and Strategic Planning process.

To do this,

  1. Consider setting up cross-functional teams that can identify and quickly respond to changes in the business environment.
  2. Invest in advanced analytics capabilities to predict market trends and adapt strategies accordingly.
  3. Develop a flexible supply chain that can accommodate sudden shifts in demand or supply.

Technology and Innovation in the Petroleum Industry

Embracing technology and Innovation is another crucial factor in maintaining a competitive edge in the petroleum sector. Digital Transformation initiatives can offer numerous benefits, such as streamlining operations, reducing costs, and improving decision-making.

For instance, companies can use artificial intelligence and machine learning to predict equipment failures, thus reducing maintenance costs and minimizing downtime. Similarly, blockchain technology can simplify transactions and enhance transparency across the supply chain.

A study from Accenture reveals that 75% of oil and gas companies plan to invest in digital technologies in the next three years, demonstrating the importance of Digital Transformation in the sector.

Environmental Sustainability and Risk Management

As societies become more environmentally conscious, the petroleum industry must prioritize Environmental Sustainability and Risk Management. This involves shifting toward cleaner operations, investing in renewable energy, and communicating these initiatives effectively to stakeholders. <> According to a study by the Boston Consulting Group, companies in the energy industry that demonstrate strong environmental credentials can increase their market value by up to 19%.

To meet these benchmarks, oil and gas companies can follow a three-track approach:

  1. Improve the efficiency of their current operations to reduce carbon emissions.
  2. Invest in cleaner technologies and renewable energy sources.
  3. Engage in carbon-offset projects, such as tree planting initiatives, to compensate for emissions that cannot be avoided.

Employee Engagement and Change Management

Successful Change Management starts with engaged employees. As the petroleum industry evolves and adapts, it is critical for companies to effectively communicate changes and ensure that employees are aligned with the strategic direction of the company.

According to Gallup, highly engaged teams show 21% greater profitability. For Change Management to succeed, companies must:

  1. Share a compelling vision of the future to inspire and motivate employees.
  2. Engage employees in transition programs to foster more accurate feedback and insight.
  3. Provide targeted training and support to help employees adapt to new technologies and processes.

In an era of energy transition, environmental scrutiny, and technological innovation, conformance to these strategies will help petroleum companies remain resilient and competitive. Future-focused petroleum leaders who are attuned and responsive to these shifts can transform these challenges into opportunities for business growth and longevity.
