Customer Stories
Reduce number of operations
“A leading operator consulted with us to help identify cost savings. We deployed VAM® best-in-class processes to limit operational waste and optimized operation sequencing with a unique focal point. This helped reduce the number of operations in the buffer zone and on the critical path. The result: 40% less TMS cost per well, 40% fewer man hours at the rig and a 20% gain in running efficiency, for significant TMS savings.”
Integrated Digital Solution
“For a leading operator facing serious rig return operation issues, we put in place an integrated, digital solution. Our customer was able to reduce stock by 16%, use 57% fewer suppliers and reduce inventory loss by 90%. Our customer also saw a $30 million positive cash effect and $6 million per year in cost savings.”
Customized Stock Management Plan
“When a customer contacted us with significant stock management challenges, we put in place a customized stock management plan. Our “stabilize, then improve” strategy meant we studied the condition of existing stock and performed random checks and reorganized the yard design. As a result, the customer was able to reduce stock by 25%, reduce their footprint by 15% and scrap or resell items worth approximately $400,000.”
Processes & Procedures Improvement
“For a customer struggling with stockyard supervision and management challenges, we helped them come up with a strategy. By putting in place a Vallourec stockyard manager in their yard for three years, we helped them improve processes and procedures. As a result, they were able to reduce stock levels by 35%, reduce their footprint by 25% and reduce handling damage by 40%.”
