With a greater focus on fiscally responsible operations and more efficient teams across the industry, it has become more important than ever to streamline efforts and gain visibility into your spend in different markets. Traditional industry KPIs on their own – the movement of permits, the number of platforms, the number of completions – cannot help you drive a fiscally viable supply chain strategy, because they do not help you. not inform about price trends. In addition, a blind or blanket discount strategy is no longer viable due to small teams and a stressed supplier market. Therefore, the need for a platform that streamlines supply chain management strategies and creates a win-win situation for buyers and suppliers has become crucial.
Stop flying blind
The example below shows why the “blind” approach to supply chain strategy does not work. When you only look at Firm B’s two-year price curve (left), a 60% price drop looks favorable. But the data shows that the aggregate market price index fell 80% during that same period. Firm B’s price comparison with the market (right) shows that there is room for additional cost savings, as it is always overspending relative to the market.
Price curve at a category level of a single company versus a price curve of a market index at the category level
New Enverus Market Price Indices Solve this problem by combining the nearly $ 200 billion in annual spend flowing through the OpenInvoice network with Enverus’ activity-based metrics. Now companies can compare their own prices on various categories of goods or services to market indices in a specific region. Unlike other solutions based on “black box” assumptions and models, indices are based on real, anonymized, analytical-grade spending data that is frequently updated to the most recent information.
With this information, buyers can see deviations from market trends, understand the economic impacts of pricing, uncover specific opportunities for additional cost savings, negotiate win-win agreements with suppliers, and forecast trends. futures. This maximizes the value generated from this analysis and also acts as a normative system, driving strategies in underperforming areas.
Market price indices reveal opportunities and market signals for suppliers
Understanding market and price trends accurately is not just beneficial for buyers. Suppliers can gain significant competitive advantages by accurately understanding how trends are changing in an area. A price comparison of the Friction Reducers market in the Permian Basin to the Appalachian Basin is a perfect example of how buyers and suppliers can benefit from analyzing regional price trends. The price variation in the Appalachians (left) is much smaller than in the Permian. Indeed, although both areas have high activity, Appalachia is a very tightly controlled market with fewer supplier options for downhole. The Appalachian Market Index indicates that there may be additional opportunities for suppliers, compared to a market that may be oversaturated, such as the Permian. For operators, the greater variation in the Permian price index indicates a potential opportunity to reduce fracking costs while negotiating a win-win price agreement with suppliers.
