Become a supplier

How to become a supplier

Essar Oil (UK) Limited has committed to the use of the Oil & Gas industry supply chain database, known as First Point Assessment (FPAL), as a vendor selection tool designed to improve the performance and efficiency of our supply chain. If you are interested in becoming one of our key suppliers, the FPAL service is provided by Achilles and registration is a mandated requirement for on-site service contractors. We have an exemption process, but this is only valid for a short amount of time and therefore registration is advised.

We utilise the Achilles FPAL system as a contributor to our vendor selection process, and following any contract/ work awards, we use Achilles FPAL performance feedback to monitor our performance and that of our suppliers.

Once registered, we require you to participate in the following:

  • Maintain your registration, ensuring that it is up-to-date, accurate and that you are registered for the correct service/product codes
  • Have an up-to-date capability assessment on your record (applicable to all key suppliers, particularly those that are required to provide pre-qualification information)
  • Undertake relevant and comprehensive Achilles FPAL performance feedback

We would like to emphasise the importance of the above, as this will ensure a continued positive relationship with Essar and also enable you to market yourself more effectively to over 90 Achilles FPAL registered buyers. For further details on Achilles FPAL, including a list of buyers currently using the system, visit: www.fpal.com.

To begin Achilles FPAL registration, please complete the online registration process.
