Hey, folks. Let’s learn something new about the oil and gas industry.


Okay. Today’s show we’re going to do something different. We’re going to try in less a minute to profile one of the companies you may want to do business with and I have to admit this idea came from one of my clients. So, thanks Tim for the great idea for a blog post.

All right. Ready? One minute, Anadarko Petroleum.

Anadarko is an independent upstream company headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas. They are great little company able to pull things off that the bigger companies can’t do. They’re about $13 billion in revenue with about 5,000 employees and they have about $2.5 billion barrels under reserve globally.

I’ll tell you what. You know I talk about how great ExxonMobil is and how they’re the best oil and gas engineering company on the planet. I put Anadarko right next to Exxon. There’s a big difference in size, you know Exxon is $400 billion a year company, Anadarko is $13 but they rock and roll. They’ve been tearing it up in Africa in Mozambique. Their company culture is different than a lot of the super majors, they partner with their vendors. So, whereas the big companies like Exxon and Chevron want to do all their engineering and sourcing and procurement and quality control themselves and the project management as well, Anadarko likes to push it out to the vendors so you’re not really a vendor, you’re a partner.

So once you earned that trusted partner relation with Anadarko, it is awesome company to do business with. And that lean – that culture that lean culture is rather business behavior, Anadarko is easier to get to know to do business with ‘cause they’re looking for new ideas and new technologies to help them capitalize on their small stature where they have to compete with all these big guys.

So, there you go, I hope that it helps you with Anadarko and if you need anything, reach out to us, we’ll be happy to help.
