"The Rushmore Reviews have really helped us to achieve top quartile performance through the years. We learned from the experience of the other E&P companies and applied new technologies and innovations in our designs and operations. Also it helped us in benchmarking our new projects with the rest of industry. Thank you for your continuous improvement and your support through the years."
- Peter Peytchev GM Drilling Engineering, Cairn, India, 2012
"I have participated in the Reviews in a variety of international locations since the early 1990’s. I have found them to be a great tool for both internal and external evaluation of our operations. It is critical that we continually evolve and improve both our operations and those of the industry as a whole. The Rushmore Reviews are also key to sharing industry best practices and promoting discussion and cooperation between companies. We are excited to be part of the Reviews with our North American operations and look forward to the benefits it will deliver."

"I have found Rushmore benchmarking far more thorough than many others in providing reliable, QC’d comparative data for establishing both internal and external baselines as part of a company’s strategy to embed performance management practices. It is a process that allows us to gain understanding, collaborate on how to get better, and increase synergies, opening new methods and ideas to improve process effectiveness. We use the Rushmore data to promote a learning culture, which is key to continuous long-term Operational Excellence and our competitiveness."
