Rapid innovation in hydrocarbon extraction and processing techniques is fuelling continued investment in the energy sector. Oil sands, shale gas and tight oil development attract significant new capital, in spite of endemic cost and schedule overruns on large capital projects. Operators and investors are evaluating new LNG projects to capture better pricing for North American gas.

By working with your service providers and assessing your contracts and processes, we’ll help drive improvements in production.

From planning for the purchase of your asset to decommissioning that asset at its end of use, our cross-functional teams will help you to optimize your availability, and as a result, your productivity.
