Evolve Partners Co-Presents with Shell Oil at OTC


The Journey of Thriving in a Low-Oil Price Environment

Houston, TX, May 9, 2017 – Evolve Partners, a global implementation-focused consulting firm that helps leading Energy & Petrochemicals clients implement strategic business improvement programs, presented a case study at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston on May 4. The OTC is where energy professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for offshore resources and environmental matters. OTC is the world’s largest energy trade show, with over 65,000 people attending this year’s conference.

Troy Henson, Client Partner, Evolve Partners co-presented with Mike Fairburn, General Manager of Regulatory Affairs, Shell Oil, a paper entitled “Thriving in a Low-Oil Price Environment - Shell Ursa Asset” at the OTC. The paper describes the performance improvement journey of Ursa, a Shell-operated, Deepwater Tension Leg Platform in the Gulf of Mexico. Evolve Partners worked with Shell on the journey to realize substantial business results and increased organizational engagement. This took Ursa from a well-performing organization content with its output, to a truly world-class team that continually looks for the best ways to improve and optimize performance.

"Throughout this three-year journey, we were able to help Ursa improve its already good performance and bring it to truly world-class levels, as measured by both internal KPI's and external benchmarking," says Troy Henson, Evolve Partners. "Shell continues to accrue benefits and learnings almost a full year after our engagement ended."

"It was great to see the OTC look beyond pure technical solutions to consider this example of what we refer to as human debottlenecking  maximizing asset value through human performance," said Seth Tyler, COO, Evolve Partners.

Evolve Partners has offices in Houston, TX as well as Calgary, Alberta.
