Oil and Gas
John Kim and Associates’ hands-on experience using Lean methodologies to improve business level metrics (Revenue, EBIT, and Cash) and objectives (New Product Development, Speed-to-Market, and Strategic Growth) are the cornerstones to our impactful engagements within the Oil and Gas industries.
From exploration to mobilization to drilling to casing to completions, our experience in applying Lean to achieve Operational and Enterprise Excellence is second to none in the industry.
Our engagements included work within field operations and at regional, country, and corporate offices around the world building strategy, processes, and improvement in:
- Sales (Quoting and Tenders) and Marketing
- Accounting and Finance
- Supply Chain, Procurement, and Strategic Sourcing
- Manufacturing, Warehouse, and Service Center Operations
- Product Development
Over the past 10+ years, our work supporting land and offshore operations has included global engagements (North America, South America, North Sea/Europe, Middle East, Russia, Asia, and Sub-Sahara Africa) at both the strategic and operational levels with multi-national and joint venture organizations (such as M-I Swaco, Smith International, Tesco, and Transocean) and smaller oil field services companies (such as @Balance, Wilson, and Light Tower Rentals). These efforts resulted in over $350+mm in bottom line financial improvements.
Having specialized in the rapid cycle development, documentation, and global/regional scalability of processes, JKA has been able to introduce and deploy a model for performance and process enhancements at the front line that demonstrated 10-50% improvements in key financial objectives including:
- Working Capital (Cash)
- Inventory (Dollars and Turns)
- Days Sales Outstanding (DSO)
- Quality Health Safety & Environmental (QHSE)
