NADRA GROUP not only offers specialized services in geological exploration and energy production, as well as the production and supply of allied materials, tools, and equipment, but also provides a range of integrated solutions to customers to ensure the successful implementation of their projects in their entirety.
NADRA GROUP provided integrated services through its affiliates and independent third-party service and equipment providers. Nevertheless, NADRA GROUP assumed full responsibility to the customer for the entire set of integrated solutions.
In addition to its linear business of affiliated companies, NADRA GROUP started a network business and emerged as the operational center of a vast network of partner companies. This network interacts to safeguard the interests of service providers and their consumers and execute projects and programs for geological exploration, production, and rational use of natural resources worldwide.
NADRA GROUP's specially developed operational digital models for all types of services enabled the optimization of overall costs and streamlined the entire set of operations involved in the execution of customer projects.
NADRA GROUP implemented a new balanced and profitable business model while providing services to three distinct groups of consumers - investors, manufacturing companies, and governments. Recognizing the needs of each group, their interdependence, and the importance of cooperation and harmonization of interests during projects, NADRA GROUP devised an innovative approach.
Thus, NADRA GROUP's integrated solutions enabled customers to enhance overall efficiency, mitigate potential risks, navigate volatile conditions, optimize integrated technologies to reduce costs, and complete projects within the stipulated time frame.
NADRA GROUP delivered high-quality integrated services to address a broad spectrum of challenges related to the study and optimal utilization of energy, mineral, and water resources. The company sourced contractors across the entire value chain and focused on executing a complete range of work to offer the integrated solutions required by customers.
Proper planning, coordination, and organization of the process enabled the realization of a synergistic effect through the interaction of integrated geological exploration and mining projects united by a common goal.
The successful collaboration with Halliburton, an American multinational corporation and the world's second-largest oilfield service company, serves as an excellent example of effective partnership with service and product providers within integrated projects.
Integrated project management was timely, as deep outsourcing became a profitable option for field operators due to the highly volatile market conditions. It eliminated the need for high capital investments in technology. When evaluating outsourced services, they were estimated in terms of operational expenditures (OPEX), resulting in cost savings. For oilfield service companies, a broad portfolio of service projects enabled a wide range of solutions, technological relevance, scientific research, and development, along with a good operating profit, leading to the payback of technological investments while reducing the cost of services offered.
In the early stages, the oilfield service model revolved around occasional single services, where field operators would purchase separate services from independent oil service companies. However, in the new stage of the oilfield service market, there is a global trend towards a gradual shift to integrated services and assignment of service functions to large-scale, high-tech companies. One large contractor provides an integrated block of related services, while there is also a growing trend towards turnkey services, where the general contractor provides all the required services.
During this period, NADRA GROUP functioned as an experienced provider of integrated oilfield services, utilizing its own capabilities as well as the advanced technologies of Western partners. NADRA GROUP’s partner network expanded, and the coordinated supply chains became more complex. To introduce customers to the advanced technologies of its partners, NADRA GROUP began organizing innovation-oriented events such as Technology Days since 2011. Appropriate training of customer specialists was conducted based on the affiliated Tutkovsky Institute.
In recent years, field operators have been increasingly delegating their classic production function (the function of field operator) on terms of distributed risks, focusing primarily on investment portfolio management, in addition to traditional oilfield services. In 2018, NADRA GROUP signed its first risk service contract to operate a customer's deposit, which also included attracting investments to finance the project. This marked the beginning of a new direction for NADRA GROUP - management of risk service investment projects in the oil and gas industry.
As a field operator, NADRA GROUP provided comprehensive project management, including the arrangement of a works breakdown structure (WBS), the selection of suppliers and applied technologies, and the formation of a supply chain, among other aspects.
The main processes of sectoral companies were determined by the hydrocarbon development life cycle, which could be presented as a program of projects focused on separate phases, stages, and other smaller elements of this cycle.
The majority of projects implemented in the oil and gas sector are long-term and technologically complex, requiring significant capital investments and carrying a high level of uncertainty and risk. The cost of such projects could be calculated in millions or tens of millions of dollars, with a distant payback period. A distinctive feature of project management in this industry is the necessity to source complex equipment from various parts of the world. The more complex the project, the greater the importance of logistics planning and materials management.
