Welcome to Oil Patch Supplies and Consulting

The idea for starting the company was based on having years of experience in procurement, logistics, and warehouse operations, and a genuine love for the business of providing a valuable service and achieving exemplary customer satisfaction. After having worked for a major oil company for many years, the thought was to start a company that would take full advantage of all the supply chain knowledge acquired over the years and use it to help our clients improve their performance.

Company Keys to Success

OPSC's keys to success include meeting the following critical Customer needs:

Service & Product Lines

Oil Patch Supplies and Consulting sells proactive solutions and world-class customer satisfaction. Because of the oil & gas industry's high capital costs and the significant monetary ramifications of lost production and non-productive time, OPSC recognizes that the industry places great value in suppliers that provide reliable, timely, high-quality, cost effective products and services. This allows them to focus on their core business and minimize the time and resources required to sustain their supply chain. OPSC helps solve their supply chain puzzle!

Material & Equipment Purchasing Services

OPSC provides third party materials & equipment acquisition and logistics services to take the scary out of the supply chain, domestically or internationally. We are a supply chain multiplier, allowing clients to achieve a greater yield out of their supply chain resources.
