    Energy Training Resources is a leader in oil and gas industry education. Our primary business is conducting industry overview courses for oil and gas companies, contractors/suppliers and accounting firms to improve their employees' working knowledge, team-working capabilities and communication skills. We also have public courses available. We are often asked to explain job titles used in the oil and gas industry. Many common titles provide only vague clues of the functions performed, such as geophysicist, landman, reservoir engineer, strategic sourcer or joint interest accountant. Some of these roles are so unique to the industry that you won't understand an explanation unless you first understand a little about basic industry functions. To provide context, we have grouped job titles into...

  • Supply Chain Qualification Solutions for Procurement and Safety

    This is Jennifer, she works in procurement for global biz and is responsible for sourcing suppliers and contractors. Like any job, it has its challenges. In this economy, she is being asked to do more with less. This means fewer resources to qualify suppliers, collect documentation, and proactively manage the supply chain. Global biz has hundreds of suppliers and contractors coming on site every day. Each, while critical to the ORGANIZATION presents new risk. When you include their facilities around the world, that number is much higher. Jennifer understands the importance of qualifying suppliers before they’re awarded work, but with all of the documentation she is expected to collect it can be an overwhelming task. With her resource constraints she rarely gets to requalify suppli...

There’s no lack of EPC contractors willing to bid on your engineering, procurement and construction project. How do you distinguish which one is the best fit for you? Our experts have identified five key areas that can help you differentiate one contractor from another. First, look for a company that actively applies lean construction and engineering. Lean is the process of identifying waste, then eliminating it. The payoff is great. Improved use of time and materials. Increased productivity. A stronger safety record. Projects stay on-budget and on-schedule. Seek out a company with its own full-time staff of startup and commissioning professionals. This is no place for part-time or extra assignment positions. For these professionals, this is all they do – making sure the startup of your plant goes smoothly. There’s no room for error at this milestone. Pursue companies that actively encourage ownership involvement. Do you want to utilize an “open-to-closed-book” approach, jointly make decisions with the EPC contractor, and be part of an integrated team? Make sure your provider not only allows it, but actively encourages it. Look for a company that does more than promote safety with some banners and posters. Ask: What is its culture of safety? Safety is a leading indicator for the success of your project. By actively working to prevent all accidents, continually improving safety processes, and maximizing craft engagement, the goal of zero injuries is achievable! Lastly, partner with a company that truly understands risk management and can work with you to lower costs, making wise use of risk management tools. This can help ensure your project meets your budget. These five areas are vital – but sometimes unseen. Based on our global experience and ability to execute EPC projects, Black and Veatch experts have created a video series that examines each of these topics, along with articles that expound on the details. This information will assist you with your selection process and differentiate the really strong bidders. You will be one step ahead.

The functions covered include geoscientists, engineers, land positions, procurement and accountants. This information should be useful to anyone working in the industry, plus auditors, investors, recruiters, job seekers, etc. This video is about the procurement function. There is a lot to explain but the information is useful -- even for those working outside the oil and gas industry. To learn more about our courses, go to www.energytrainingresources.com

This is Jennifer, she works in procurement for global biz and is responsible for sourcing suppliers and contractors. Like any job, it has its challenges. In this economy, she is being asked to do more with less. This means fewer resources to qualify suppliers, collect documentation, and proactively manage the supply chain. Global biz has hundreds of suppliers and contractors coming on site every day. Each, while critical to the ORGANIZATION presents new risk. When you include their facilities around the world, that number is much higher. Jennifer understands the importance of qualifying suppliers before they’re awarded work, but with all of the documentation she is expected to collect it can be an overwhelming task. With her resource constraints she rarely gets to requalify suppliers when documents expire. Other departments have similar challenges, including risk, legal, operations and safety. Unfortunately, there’s really no good way to share this data between departments. Jason is Jennifer’s peer and he works in safety. They’ve talked about the importance of qualifying suppliers, not just from a financial perspective, but also from a safety perspective. Just one accident can cost the organization thousands of dollars, a fatality would be disastrous. Both need the right tools to manage this data and share it with the rest of the organization in order to reduce risk. They are currently limited to spreadsheets and filing cabinets. Without the right tools, work can be a real nightmare. Fortunately, they partnered with BROWZ. BROWZ worked with them to create an online assessment for their high, medium and low risk suppliers, based on their unique requirements. You see, BROWZ never takes a one size fits all approach to supply chain management. BROWZ products are tailored to your unique requirements. First, suppliers complete an online questionnaire, and submit their required documentation. Then BROWZ collects, validates and audits that information. This means you know which suppliers meet your standards, and this data can be shared throughout your organization. To ensure success, BROWZ assigns dedicated support to assist suppliers when they have questions and will proactively reach out before documents expire. BROWZ is the right fit for safety, risk and procurement professionals seeking assurance they are working with the best qualified members of their supply chain.
