A new interactive online tool which aims to help oil and gas firms “streamline and optimise” for the future will be launched at Oil & Gas UK’s revamped Share Fair this week.

The industry’s Efficiency Task Force (ETF) is gearing up to exhibit at this year’s event on Wednesday, October 31 – and will unveil a new online dashboard as part of the second phase of development since its inception.

Set up in 2015, the ETF aims to seek out, promote and provide access to efficient practice across the industry while maintaining safe operations.

In just three years, experts have secured transformational change in areas including business processes, standardisation and simplification, culture and behaviours.

Mariesha Jaffray, Oil & Gas UK’s Continuous Improvement Manager, said:

“As the industry is entering a period of relative stability, the role of the Efficiency Task Force will evolve as we look to optimise what we have gained so far in terms of industry best practice.

“Our new dashboard will offer a quick ‘at a glance’ overview of business activity and overall industry action. This interactive tool will help our members easily navigate existing resources and provide a user-friendly experience for members.

“The ETF will also be sharing a series of vlogs at the membership stand at Share Fair as part of our online hub. We encourage people to come along and visit our stand to find out how they can tap into the tools available.”

There are a variety of ways people can get involved in the Efficiency Task Force, from becoming an efficiency champion to hosting a roadshow, which aims to allow businesses to share best practice and streamline ways of working.

The Efficiency Task Force is the first of its kind for any oil and gas province, aligning with all industry initiatives efforts. It is one of the six MER UK (Maximising Economic Recovery) task forces under the MER UK Forum, bringing together government, industry, and the OGA to drive collective action on key priorities.
