Challenges in producing oil and gas resources

The long-term health of the oil and gas industry will be determined by how well we respond to the energy transformation and move into a new era of sustainable energy sources. This means re-evaluating how we extract, produce, and process resources sustainably and safely to satisfy ever-increasing consumption habits, new technology, and evolving regulations.

As economies grapple with resource constraints, it is imperative that we unlock stranded resources by leveraging technology and digitalization. Doing so will be key to reducing costs, improving safety, and limiting the effects of emissions on the environment.

The market has its challenges, but these challenges present massive opportunities and we see them as catalysts for making real change. Let us help you extract greater value from your assets.

Upstream oil and gas capabilities

Field development planning

Whether it’s unlocking the most remote reserves, overcoming the harshest environments, or commercializing the most marginal of fields, we’ve got the expertise and innovation to maximize your development opportunity.

From reservoir to market, we bring a fully integrated and customized approach tailored to align with your business drivers and project delivery processes. A ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach is no longer good enough and there is no substitute for in-depth subject matter expertise. Our in-house experts can deliver the ability to undertake reservoir uncertainty and lifetime variations, process facility analysis, rotating equipment expertise, screening tools, and cost and bench-marking data, all of which is provided with a clear audit trail for decision-making.

Oil and Gas Facilities Engineering

We’ve provided engineering services to numerous projects, installing pipelines and well-site facilities to tie in oil and natural gas production, and water injection wells. Our experienced team can help optimize your field development. We design and install all aspects of oil and gas field facilities inclusive of well tie-ins, gathering systems, field compressor stations, phase separation, gas dehydration and sweetening, produced water handling and disposal, and can assist with difficult issues around emulsion breaking and multi-phase flow measurements. And we’ll install the communication systems to let you monitor and control remotely.

We can look at optimization of and debottlenecking of existing installations and expansions, and analyze the most cost-effective arrangements of field facilities, from central battery/compression facilities to smaller, satellite battery/compression facilities.

Oil sands

To thrive in this complex, shifting environment, projects need to become leaner, smarter, simpler, and executed more efficiently, while minimizing impacts on the ecosystems and existing operations. We have in-depth industry knowledge, utilize strategies, provide innovative solutions, and develop cutting-edge new technologies to maximize value. From mining through to ore preparation, hydrotransporting, extraction and tailings, and upgrading, we work in partnership with our clients to provide meaningful value-added solutions.

Flow assurance

Flow assurance is more than the study of fluid flow, it plays a significant role in ensuring continuous and manageable oil and gas production. Because of this understanding, we value the importance of full life-cycle analysis, the different types of artificial lift, and the boundaries of flow modeling—and how far to push those boundaries.

We provide an overarching capability to link and optimize gathering systems and host/facility interfaces both onshore and subsea. We achieve this through the application of extensively recognized experience, and state-of-the-art tools (including PIPESIM, OLGA, PIPENET, and MAXIMUS) to address client-specific needs. We partner with you to mitigate your corrosion concerns, ensuring your system’s robustness from first production to end-of-life across the full range of operating and shutdown scenarios.

Realizing asset potential through digital twins 

Unlock the full value of your operating assets with our cutting-edge digital twins. Leveraging our deep industry knowledge and digital expertise, we seamlessly integrate engineering principles, AI technologies, and real-time data. Access comprehensive asset and operational intelligence for informed, real-time decision-making.

Our proactive approach goes beyond monitoring – we harness data to its fullest potential, extracting valuable insights that maximize your asset's value. Identify process bottlenecks, optimize productivity, and drive digital decarbonization. Our data-driven approach ensures sustained performance, equipping you with actionable insights for agile decision-making and propelling digital innovation in the ever-evolving oil and gas sector. 

Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS)

Whether your emission source is from boilers, fired heaters, natural gas drivers or from power generation, we can design and implement the most appropriate carbon capture system to meet your purification needs by leveraging the best CO2 capture technologies.

Our extensive track record with CO2 projects— compression, dehydration, pipelining, and injection—puts us in a unique position to help you progress and implement your project.

Additionally, our sub-surface engineering and geoscience specialists can help you with your understanding of the geological and reservoir aspects that are critical to a successful CCS project, whether it’s for geological storage in saline aquifers, or enhanced oil recovery projects.
