The success of independents has dispelled many misconceptions about production economics, the regulatory environment and infrastructure support in the region.

Oil & Gas Journal Feature
Daniel Follette, Inc. provides thought leadership on new strategies for personnel development in the November 12 issue of Oil & Gas Journal. In "How strategic personnel development can reduce operations costs," Daniel Follette describes what forward-thinking companies have done with personnel development to produce double-digit reductions in operations costs. 

The article leads off a special report, Managing Oil and Gas Companies. The article tells why those companies have taken critical strategic steps to identify and document the core skills required to run the companies. It describes the techniques used to capture that information and the unique training and competency programs that can minimize the cost of developing those strategic competencies. The article presents a roadmap for program development and criteria that management can use to evaluate the effectiveness of proposed and existing programs.

Shell Offshore Multi-skilling Training Available
