It's no secret that the world pandemic COVID-19 has had an enormous impact on almost every aspect of our lives. A new normal and changes are coming from everywhere, from the NY Stock Exchange to stay-at-home orders, educating our children online, limiting outdoor events such as sport's to name a few. However, the effect this pandemic has had on the world's oil and gas market is staggering. With unheard-of prices for oil, along with the disappearance of storage space for crude oil, we are in uncharted territory as it relates to the oil and gas sector.
This has obviously affected how these facilities are securing these highly critical assets while keeping the safety of employees, contractors, and visitors at the forefront of what they do. Below, I've created a list of some of the things we see changing as it relates to securing these facilities and I can offer help and solutions for your facility.
We are continuing to see new "best practices" and a "new normal" every day. As with many other crises the oil and gas industry has faced, it will come out stronger and better prepared with the right adjustments and changes made effectively. At Allied Universal, and with our support, we have the resources, knowledge, and experience to help you navigate during these unknown times and are here to help.
