However, the relationship between operational risk and oil supply chain management is poorly studied. This article proposes a model (derived from the Eni's supply chain) to analyse and to assess the operational risk at the drilling, primary transport and refining stage of the oil supply chain. For the drilling stage, the model suggests three sub-methods, one for each period of the plant… CONTINUE READING
