Businesses working in the upstream oil & gas service sector are usually quite diverse in the types of business process they perform. For instance a service company might provide inspection services which require to use specialist equipment some of which it buys in and some it manufactures. The company might also rent its manufactured tools to other companies and perhaps sell some of them as well.
A typical job or contract could involve skilled staff going offshore charged on a day rate basis along with equipment also charged on a day rate to the contract. Both staff and equipment must have the correct certification and these resources have to be scheduled across many jobs in difference geographies.
