Are you experiencing unnecessary losses which are cutting into your margins?

Midstream companies face the complexities of transportation and supply chain management. One major challenge is the accounting losses resulting from measurement uncertainties which are often difficult to identify, isolate and explain.

Here is where Trindent can help. We can quickly identify these losses and implement mitigation processes, systems and behaviors to optimize profitability. Our consultants will assess your facility and examine all measurement points. We look for measurement inaccuracies across all transportation modes: pipeline, rail, marine and truck transportation. Volume is but one component, we also investigate the proper temperature measurement, sampling, and testing practices.

We have partnered with some of the world’s leading energy companies and provided them with the right solutions throughout the oil and gas value chain, including:

  • Hydrocarbon Loss Control and Measurement Assurance
  • Maintenance Productivity and Reliability-Centered Maintenance
  • Procurement Excellence

Case Studies

Hydrocarbon Loss Control
A North American oil sands partnership engaged Trindent to design and implement a world-class hydrocarbon loss control program, focusing on one of their refineries in Ohio to improve in areas of meter measurements, tank gauging and Sediment and Water (S & W) Sampling and Testing. Trindent delivered 127% reduction in S & W test variance and $30,300,000 in annualized savings.

Drilling Reliability
One of the world’s leading land-based drilling companies experienced much higher maintenance costs in the US than elsewhere in its global organization and engaged Trindent to improve Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) performance and drive efficiencies in its maintenance and procurement function. Trindent delivered a 62% increase in preventative maintenance compliance and over
in EBITDA improvement.
