The leaders in the energy sector opt to maximize operational efficiency and control costs by outsourcing strategic engineering services. However, the companies lack in fully trained crews, process expertise, infrastructure and systems, and innovative tools. Most energy companies invest only in infrastructure and systems, and the human resource aspect remains unnoticed. For successful management of these companies, HRs must develop policies and practices that are highly flexible to adapt to the local government labor codes and recognize cultural and stylistic differences. This recognition can improve communications, productivity, quality and integration with the entire corporate organization.
The common problem faced by the energy companies is the miscommunication between the fresh graduates and the superiors. The new joinees do not connect or get proper guidance and grooming from the seniors due to the gap between them (of age, level), which hampers the development of a strong bond. Moreover, companies who outsource projects as part of an offshore plan need to anticipate the challenges that come with deploying teams across the world: lack of project control, communication gaps between onshore and offshore groups, misunderstood processes, higher coordination costs, mismatched workflows, and mistakes in work transfer. As different countries deal with political issues about the growing onshore and offshore companies, the regulatory and legal issues are also essential to focus on. The management needs to support relationships with both onshore and offshore operations and assure that objectives, contracts, delivery models and measurement are well integrated and aligned. Most importantly, the organizations must recognize the differences between onshore and offshore human resources to achieve business and operational goals, customer satisfaction, and cost benefit.
Further, the onshore and offshore companies need innovative tools that provide drillers and operators with real-time information while drilling, well boring, and wireline services, among others. To determine the root cause for the decrease/cease in production, these companies also need efficient surveying tools that help operators achieve extremely accurate outcomes and maximized production. The information or data collection is possible with experts who can gather, consolidate and analyze critical data and then offer recommendations to avoid potential hazards, and proper equipment for precise and accurate survey data that helps in making informed operational decisions for maximum production. The energy sector can effectively execute all their operations with productive support from the well-planning and drilling optimization professionals who deliver 24/7 real-time monitoring services to aid operators in making well-informed decisions regarding their operations. As a whole, this sector requires one-stop-shop services that can provide complete information on one run, rather than multiple runs from different service providers. Thus, the highly competitive energy market thrives on experienced service providers to reduce costs while improving safety.
