Owing to low rate of demand of crude oil globally as compared to supply, prices of crude oil have stepped down by more than 50% since 2014. Several factors such as growth in electric vehicles, increased production of shale oil in the U.S., low demand rate in China, and the prospect of increased supply from Iran after lifting of the global sanctions, among others, indicates that the prices of crude oil is expected to not gain considerable momentum over the next decade. Due to this, revenue of the global top five major oil and gas companies decreased by approximately 15% on an average in 2016 as compared to 2015. This has compelled the oil and gas industry to maximize their operational efficiency, productivity, and improve asset portfolio to remain competitive in the market.
