The conversation we’re not having…

A short time ago, I was at an event in Brussels, talking about the role of natural gas. And there was a gentleman there who didn’t want to engage with our industry at all.

He is just one person who sees gas as a problematic energy source. Sadly, he is one of many.

Increasingly, the principle of establishing global standards to all aspects of operations – including purchasing – is helping to tackle the universal problems of escalating project costs and expanding schedules.
