Maximising the contribution of local companies in the project supply chain

09:30 - 10:30

Maximising the contribution of local companies in the project supply chain is an effective method of increasing the economic and social benefits from oil and gas investments. While employing local companies and suppliers forms a crucial part of local content requisites, the capacity within the local supply chain, especially in emerging markets, to engage in large scale, technical projects often falls short.

Collaboration among large scale projects and across industries may present one solution to broadening investment into the local supply chain and maximising the contribution of local companies.

This session will focus on methods to build the capacity of the local supply chain, and increase their engagement in project opportunities. Specifically:

  • Developing supplier databases to map local supply chain capabilities – managed by governments and private sector associations in country
  • Information sharing between IOCs, contractors and local enterprises
  • Improving skills, experience and management systems to raise the capacity of local enterprises to engage in large scale projects
  • Standards and quality assurance of local companies
  • Strategic investments into high potential sectors
  • Case studies of best practice on supplier development programmes
  • Clearly communicating opportunities to local companies
  • Modifying procurement processes of international operators and contractors to support local companies
