Oil and gas
We help clients across the oil and gas sector to innovate and adapt to challenging environments.
Whatever your project, you will benefit from our four decades of experience in oil and gas. We’ll work with you to find the best way to strengthen your project, minimise your risk and ensure your success, whether that involves oil, natural gas, unconventional gas or Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
As natural gas becomes an increasingly popular fuel, we’re helping our clients develop more effective distribution systems, and to integrate natural gas energy systems with renewable energy systems.
Robust specialist structures
Meanwhile, offshore oil developments are shifting to less hospitable environments, such as deeper and more remote hostile offshore locations. This demands specialist, robust structures like our ground-breaking Concrete Gravity Substructures (CGS), steel Gravity Based Structures (GBS) and ACE Platforms which can be self-installed economically and withstand extreme ocean and environmental conditions.
As well as new structures and adaptations like CGS White Rose extension project for Husky Energy, we work with clients to optimise and extend the life of their existing structures. At the end of the field life we develop and lead decommissioning strategies.
We’ve written a number of reports in conjunction with leading oil and gas decommissioning bodies in the UK, looking at how the sector could benefit from developments in innovation which in turn can lead to substantial cost savings on decommissioning projects.
Innovative and independent
For the growing LNG market we advise on technical and financing strategies. We engineer solutions for floating (FLNG) to power projects, marine terminal jetties and LNG storage tanks. Our work on LNG tanks includes the innovative All-Concrete tank and the patent-pending modular tank for mid-scale projects. Our work includes three recently completed Australian LNG export marine terminals and the innovative Energia Costa Azul LNG receival terminal in Mexico.
For unconventional gas, we acted as independent advisers for the first ever planning and environmental impact assessment applications in the UK. In the Netherlands we are providing a broad range of technical expertise to advise on ground surface movements, we are helping deliver gas pipelines in Ireland and we have provided due diligence advice on their asset value to DONG. We aren't tied to particular contractors or under obligation to any shareholders. This means our advice on LNG, natural gas and oil related developments is truly independent, centred on your interests.
Complete lifecycle support
With in-house expertise in every step of the project lifecycle, we can support you throughout – whether you need structural engineering, advice on strategy and financing, transaction advice, programme and project management, or advanced technology and research. Using our data on typical costs and schedules enables you to benchmark your project and find the simplest way to achieve your targets.
Our broader energy market offering
We support clients by bringing specific and cross-sector experience to challenging projects in energy, covering power, heat and transport. Whatever your needs in the complex energy market we are able to bring solutions through our service offerings.
Our structures offering allows us to work with some of the largest energy operators in the world, from designing the right solution such as an ACE offshore platform through to maritime engineering, LNG storage solutions, cost planning, CGS solutions as well as offshore structural work such as deep sea wind farms. We have developed a number of award winning structures thanks to our in-house capabilities.
We work with local authorities, planners, contractors and developers to research and analyse potential sites for new nuclear power stations. Our team advise on technical due diligence, planning laws and environmental impact assessments and help to find the best way to connect a new plant to the electricity network whilst supporting a client in gaining acceptance from the regulator.
We provide clients with high-quality, cost-effective and sustainable solutions from projects initial feasibility through to successful commercial operation. Our multidisciplinary service focuses on energy sector companies engaged in upstream activities from exploration to transmission and distribution.
We provide independent advice on energy master-planning and energy business strategy from ‘demand’ side reduction to transaction advice. We work with large energy operators, cities, governments, property owners and corporate clients on carbon strategies through to business change management.
