Managing European suppliers brings efficiency to Qatar oil project
An oil and gas company successfully developed Al Shaheen field’s thin reservoirs scattered across vast distances. However, it had difficulty managing the European suppliers contracted to supply goods and equipment to various aspects of its operation in Qatar. Garbled communications and an inefficient control system led to delivery delays and escalating costs. Agility Denmark brought order to the process by managing all the European suppliers and consolidating cargo in Esbjerg, where Agility operates a world-class warehouse. To reduce the high customs clearance fees in Qatar, Agility’s dedicated account and operations management teams prepare a weekly document that captures the activity of all European suppliers so it only has to clear customs as one shipment.
