About This Career
Negotiation is your game. You source the materials and equipment that oil and gas companies need to get their work done… your job is from procurement, to awarding supplier contracts and post-contract award management. You don’t only help companies to get what they need, but when they want it and how they want it.
Supply Chain Analysts identify efficiencies or recommend changes by analyzing supplier capabilities, service levels, product delivery, supply chain processes, spending and trends. They research industry trends, analyze organizational processes and workflows to identify gaps, make recommendations for improvement, and ensure compliance with organizational governance requirements.

Depending on the size of oil and gas company, their scope of activities can include land management functions, drilling logistics and asset lifecycle management.
