Many companies have implemented a comprehensive outbreak management plan for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) that is currently impacting people, operations, and supply chains around the world.
If your company is struggling to come up with a comprehensive plan for the current crisis, here’s a look at Schlumberger’s COVID-19 Outbreak Plan:
- Resources to improve information management and promote engagement
- A practical approach designed to reduce exposure
- Geography-specific preparations designed to meet local jurisdictional requirements
- Tools for business continuity plans
Supply Chain Continuity
- Ongoing supply chain risk assessment, operations impact assessment, and development of potential mitigation measures, including alternative suppliers
- Specific risk analyses for extended product and spares lead times, increased product cost, and supply disruption
- Potential supply chain impact assessment for supplier changes to delivery dates, delays due to port congestion, and transport (air/ocean/trucking) quarantine requirements
- Project delay communications on a case-by-case basis
- Workforce footprint reduction enabled by remote operations
- Risk-based travel and alternative routing for field crews
- Conditions-based maintenance for tool and equipment integrity
This is just an example of some of the steps that larger oil and gas operations are taking during the outbreak. Coordinate with your headquarters to implement of plan of your own.
