Australia’s mining, oil & gas (resources) sectors continue to respond to declining commodity prices in a high cost environment with companies striving to reduce capital investment and find new, innovative ways to remain competitive.  

 The supply chain responds through a shift towards cost containment and a quest to seek new opportunities in innovation and competitiveness.
