chevron receives supply chain code of practice award for excellence

Chevron Upstream Europe (CUE) was recently recognised by Oil & Gas UK, the representative organisation for the UK offshore oil and gas industry, for continuing to lead the way in Supply Chain Management.

Oil & Gas UK awarded CUE with the Excellence Award at its annual Share Fair event, held recently in Aberdeen. It was awarded in recognition of the business' firm commitment to the PILOT Supply Chain Code of Practice (SCCoP),

The well attended industry event provided the opportunity for professionals from the supply sector to hear about the latest U.K. oil and gas business and technology development opportunities from the major oil and gas players, both from the operator and contractor communities, who unveil their 18-month forward plans for projects in the United Kingdom Continental Shelf.

Each year, Oil & Gas UK ranks companies’ compliance with the PILOT SCCoP by gold, silver and bronze levels, with the aim of improving overall performance and efficiency across the industry. The Excellence Award is the highest level of achievement in the tiered compliance scheme, which recognises best practice in commercial activities. The accolade honours companies who have retained ‘gold’ star status for three years or more.

At the ceremony Ken Cruickshank, Supply Chain Manager of Oil & Gas UK, said: “It’s been another successful Share Fair bringing suppliers and major purchasing companies together in one place to discuss how they can collaborate on future projects. Many potential new business opportunities for the supply chain were highlighted, including £48 billion that is expected to be invested in the railways over the coming years and 18 new offshore wind projects in the pipeline. Our supply chain has developed world class expertise in oil and gas – there is significant opportunity to capitalise on that and diversify into new sectors.”

Stuart Leighton, Chevron Upstream Europe’s Supply Chain manager, commented: “Companies signing up to the aspirational Code are encouraged to demonstrate their compliance by improving the efficiency of commercial practices including two-way performance feedback, speed of invoice payments, transparency of forward work planning and the use of standard contracts. It is fitting that we have been recognised as one of the companies leading the way in this area.

"I am delighted we have once again achieved the Supply Chain Code of Practice Award for Excellence and I would like to thank my team and other colleagues in the business for their hard-work, commitment and dedication which has led us to retain this significant award.”
