Our Story

Flat Time Reduction® was founded in 2013 by a husband and wife team of industrial engineers. Prior to forming FTR our company founders spent time working in manufacturing, transportation, and oil and gas.  While working in the West Texas oilfields they recognized the potential for LEAN implementation in oil and gas.  

Drawing on the experience and knowledge gained from multiple industries, they began developing a new process improvement system customized for the oilfield, LEAN Oilfield Solutions®.  The system was constructed over the span of three years backwards from the field to the office, on a foundation of rig crew input.  Since launching the system, FTR has proven the ability to scientifically improve any process within any operation.  

Our approach is best classified as new old school.  We believe in measuring data, utilizing technology, and most importantly spending time in the field alongside our clients.  This approach combined with our multi-industry engineering experience is FTR’s value proposition.   

FTR believes in the oil and gas industry and stands behind the U.S. Shale Revolution.  We look forward to the future and leading the way in oilfield process improvement.
