Over the years, organizations in the petroleum sector strategically prioritize customer winning approach in their product offering in response to the dynamic environment. However, attaining such goals for most organizations is curtailed by the competitive nature of other players offering better solutions in serving their target customers.

Firstly, the company should prioritize the triple-bottom-line development approach involving economic progress, social progress and environmental stewardship. [...]


[...] For instance, the messaging strategy under the Helios logo and house identifies with a different approach to the environment, despite being in primary petroleum operations.
