Cost Reduction in an Uncertain Environment... What are the True “Nuggets” of Opportunity! Have we exhausted all of the opportunities to reduce our cost base through the difficult times the Oil & Gas Industry has experienced in the last few years? Is there any low hanging fruit left to pick?

A challenge that faces us all is cost reduction in an uncertain environment. Perhaps it can be too easy to address the low hanging fruit and neglect the true changes that not only reduce our cost but strengthen us for the future. This presentation candidly challenges us on whether we have taken the “obvious” path and have missed the true “nuggets” of opportunity. This presentation will explore Subsea 7’s journey through this challenging time and what Subsea 7 has done to cement their position for the future.
