The oil and gas industry has had some extreme ups and downs in the past few years, with prices rising before hitting 6-year lows. The reasons behind the drop in prices are broad and complex, covering the global political climate, international tensions and the increasing cost of recovering the remaining oil and gas stores. Whatever the reasons, the drop in prices and the increasing complexity involved in recovering oil and gas, mean the industry is increasingly focusing on how it can increase efficiency to maximise margins and prevent uncertainty.
