Alliance Pipeline Seminar Series

Brought to you by the Canadian Centre for Advanced Supply Chain Management and Logistics


Driving cost savings, efficiencies and performance in any price environment
The continued low commodity environment has presented a unique challenge for Supply Management organizations in the oil and gas industry. Encana’s focus through the challenging market conditions has been on encouraging innovation and creative thinking to drive cost savings and efficiencies with the goal of being one of the highest performing and lowest cost producers in each of the company’s core four assets.

In 2015, the challenge for Encana was to find $300 million in combined cost savings and technical efficiencies across the organization. Supply Management, working alongside the asset teams, rose to the challenge to negotiate greater than $240 million in commercial cost savings in 2015 and continues to drive for commercial savings now totaling over $300 million over the past 18 months.

You will learn about:

  • How Encana Supply Management has taken a “One Team” approach with Operations to negotiating from a position of knowledge and strength to achieve over $300 million in commercial savings in 2015 and 2016 while managing vendor performance.
  • The company-wide integrated team approach to “One Scorecard” and how Encana measures commercial savings and technical efficiencies aligned Supply Management with the Operating teams to ensure no surprises with respect to realizing and monitoring their cost savings.
  • How Supply Management at Encana has increased their level of business acumen by leveraging data analytics and technical expertise to execute the business strategy and negotiate effectively with vendors.
  • How Encana is working with vendors to be the client of choice with our vendors of choice by developing unique sourcing strategies in major categories such as Rigs, Fracturing Services, Sand Management and Logistics to drive cost savings, efficiencies and overall vendor performance.
