Continuous Improvement Journey Breathes New Life into Late Life Sour Gas Plant

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 build a program to realize a $3-5MM opportunity. This has been a multi-year journey focused on building improvement capability within the asset which has, to date, delivered and sustained over $5MM in operating costs.

"Working with a team of dynamic people toward a set goal leads to success. I have learned that change brings fear, but not changing can be more scary."
