The UKCS upstream supply chain collaboration survey 2018

Collaboration at a crossroads – which way next?

Trust, technology and transformation remain key to successful oil & gas collaboration

About the report

Our fourth UKCS upstream supply chain collaboration survey, in partnership with Oil and GasUK, which forms the basis of this Review and Index, was conducted in August and September 2018. It looks at how behaviours towards supply chain collaboration have changed since September 2015 seeking the views of over 200 operators and suppliers. By highlighting where collaboration is successful or not, the report provides insight to help organisations improve their performance.

UKCS Collaboration Index 2018

This year’s Industry Collaboration Index remains the same as 2017 at 7.1 sustaining the gains made since 2015, though supplier scores have increased slightly as operators have reduced.

As oil prices have gone up and businesses are doing better, how do we ensure collaboration is still a priority going forward?
