Digital disruption: upstream supply chain threats and opportunities

Report summary

Digitalisation is normally viewed through the lens of the operator and the operational benefits it delivers: principally, lower cost of barrels and improved safety. But for the upstream supply chain, many of the ideas and new operating models disrupt their current business. For a sector that is still experiencing the impact of the worst downturn in a generation, digitalisation represents both an opportunity and a threat.
