BP’s Upstream segment is responsible for activities in oil and natural gas exploration, field development and production delivered through five global technical and operating functions. Reveal has worked with BP across multiple countries in delivering optimization opportunities that enhance operations.

CHALLENGES

  • Past due Stock Transport Orders
  • Operating in a reactive mode

SOLUTIONS
