Who is the Canadian Energy Supply Chain Forum for?

Supply Chain Management Professionals

Are you a leader in supply chain management/procurement for a large producer, EPC, or major contractor?   Is it your job to optimize your  supply chain, seek improvements in operations and asset efficiency, or ensure projects are delivered on time and on budget?  Are you responsible for capturing sustainable cost savings for your company's capital projects or operations?

Are the following items imperative for you to perform your job effectively?  

  • Responding to today's market in an appropriate and timely manner
  • Working collaboratively with suppliers to avoid contractual delays or cost increases from change orders
  • Learning from industry experts and peers who have successfully built and managed effective, efficient, and collaborative supply chain relationships 
  • Learning how better relationships and process changes in your supply chain can yield dramatic results

Senior Leaders from Producers and EPCMs

Are you a senior director, VP, or EVP for an energy producer or EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Constuction, Management) company?  Times are changing and the current approach and cost structure for both capital projects and sustaining operations will no longer keep Canada's energy industry competitive.  Players in the oil industry are now expected to do more with less and a more innovative way of doing things must be found.  Change and new ideas must be spread throughout your organization, and your leadership in this regard is essential.

Here's what you'll take away from the forum:

  • How to gain alignment between your business objectives and your supply chain
  • Leading international practices on how to build highly effective supply networks
  • Learn how collaborative approach to contract management can act as a source of competitive advantage
  • How to best respond to today's market and growing global competition

Contractors and Suppliers


Are you a contractor, service provider or supplier to the energy sector?  If so, you make up the Canadian energy "supply chain."  Here's what you'll take away from the event:

  • Customer perspective on supplier relationships, collaboration and buying processes
  • How to collaboratively respond to cost reduction requests
  • Business development and networking opportunities with primary buyers
  • Industry examples of how producers and suppliers have worked together to innovate, reduce costs, and create win-win business relationships

  • On Time, On Budget

    How eight megaprojects bucked the trend

    Melanie Collison.  Oilsands Review.  

    After years of sporadic and often disappointing project delivery performance, a number of oilsands producers are executing on time and on budget by sharpening their own engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) tools.  The oilsands sector has a reputation for projects being completed late and over budget. However, Tom Mansfield, a senior director in the province’s Economic Development and Innovation Department, says we could now be starting to see the results of better planning that began years ago. READ MORE.

  • Productivity, Not Just Price

    The Real Solution to Surviving Low Oil Prices

    David Yager.  Daily Oil Bulletin

    Exploration and production (E&P) companies and the oilfield services sector (OFS) are once again embroiled in the latter half of their historic love/hate relationship. It’s not pretty.

    With oil prices down 50 per cent, clients are demanding vendors cut prices. Contracts mean little. Sue if you like. Some oil company executives are publicly telling investors they’re firing suppliers that won’t cut rates. Established relationships are secondary to E&P demands that vendors share the pain.  READ MORE.

  • Suppliers Under the Squeeze

    What happens to "industry collaboration" when producers demand service cuts?


  •  Market Intelligence Report

    How to thrive in a $60/bbl environment

    Despite reductions in capital budgets, oilsands maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) is expected to approach $39 billion in 2017. Learn how service and supply companies can capture a share of this MRO spend in the CanOils Market Intelligence Report, Hunting opportunities: Following the producer spend in a bear oilsands market.


  • Using PLM to Solve Industry Interoperability Challenges

    On Demand Webinar

    Efficiency is the key to executing well in today’s tough project environment where trapped value impedes any successful execution.  However, a massive amount of technical and business value remains trapped in systems that were never designed to work together.


  • Follow the Money

    Jim Bentien and Deborah Jaremko.  Oilsands Review

    Despite a stall in growth capital, producers are expected to spend more on maintenance and operations through 2017 as new projects come online.
