Why is materials management important in the oil and gas industry? Materials management is vital in the oil and gas industry because unavailability of materials lead to delays that could result in higher business costs.
Materials management includes all those activities necessary to ensure that materials flow from source to production sites to the final customer in the form of a finished product.
It is a complete process that includes planning material requirements, releasing purchase orders, providing transportation to sites, material storage and shipping to operational sites, when required.
Materials management for large oil and gas companies includes not just material supply for day-to-day operational activities at production facilities but also the construction of large capital projects.
