A2E has been engaged in the last two years to transform the organisation using Lean Six Sigma (Lean Six Sigma includes TPM, RCA,TOC) A2E began by engaging and enrolling the senior leadership team and cascading the transformation to the shop floor. Within just two short months of the Lean Six Sigma rollout, Baker Hughes achieved savings of $200K on Waste Management alone. This achievement was on top of other sustainable benefits that have resulted in the Baker Hughes’ Braeside site winning a Global Safety and Improvement Award in 2012/2013.

On land rig mobilization LUCAS drill time comprises about one quarter of a well’s cycle time—time that is non-productive and pure cost. A2E helped us reduce this time on every rig move using a standardized process that lead to instant cost savings, marked improvement in productivity and improved safety across an operator’s fleet. Results: Reduction of rig move costs by 10-20%. Reduction of rig-release to Spud cycle time by 25-50% and increased the ratio of drilling time per drill.
