Sour Gas Processing Plant - Foothills (Canada)

Journey to extend economic life of late-life asset by developing a culture of continuous improvement and sustainably lowering unit operating costs.

Our client, operating for over half a century in Southern Alberta, recognized the need to make significant and sustainable shifts in unit operating costs in order to extend its economic life as a producing asset. The leadership team tapped into change agents at the site, and in the head office, to engage the wider population around a compelling vision for the plant and to work with people at the gas complex to examine their operations, for themselves, and apply LEAN and other business performance improvement techniques to create a significant step change in performance.

"The program provided a framework that enabled us to understand key issues and to confront them."
