Onshore Study

Improve your performance using the world’s largest database of upstream performance data, metrics, and our deep insight.

Benchmarking has long been an effective practice to help operators compare performance against their peers and find performance gaps in their assets. The rising costs and rapid changes in today’s industry mean that companies need an independent view of their assets’ performance to guide their efforts to enhance operational performance.

The Worldwide Onshore Production Operations Performance Analysis (Onshore Study) utilizes Solomon’s proprietary Comparative Performance Analysis™ (CPA™) methodology to compare the operational performance of onshore operators worldwide using a range of KPIs.

The Onshore Study analyzes both cost and production uptime performance at the asset level. The benchmarking evaluation results in specific conclusions, recommendations, and opportunity evaluation for each asset and peer group. Customizable options are available, including company-wide global analyses and custom peer group evaluations involving coalbed methane (CBM), CO2 injection, and polymer injection.

Study participants receive customized insight on their performance, showing where to focus optimization efforts, how to effectively manage resources, and how to improve future financial performance and competitiveness.
