Oil & Gas

We help oil and gas companies accelerate sustainable growth strategies by guiding their journey to a more efficient and sustainable future. Combining novel growth strategies and operational excellence, fueled by digital technologies, we guide companies through lasting transformations.

Fueling Performance

Despite an energy sector that is in transition, oil and gas remains critical to the world’s energy and economic systems. While the extent of its future share in the global energy mix is uncertain, it’s apparent that these resources and their derivatives will undoubtedly continue to be essential for the global transport, power and petrochemical industries over the next several decades. 

For exploration and production (E&P), oilfield services and equipment (OFSE), midstream pipeline, and downstream refining companies, successfully navigating the rapidly changing market environment — and efficiently allocating capital and ultimately creating an enduring competitive advantage — has never been so challenging. Several trends stand out:

Energy transition is advancing

The development of renewable energy and electric vehicle adoption are accelerating the timeline to peak oil demand.

Natural gas is gaining resiliency over oil

Natural gas is a bridge fuel in the transition to renewables. This is driving a higher frequency and volume for global liquid natural gas (LNG) flows and ushering us into a world of gas and oil rather than oil and gas.

Decarbonization goals are leading to innovation

As existing oil and gas operations strive to achieve decarbonization goals, a host of new technologies and operating philosophies are emerging to better manage emissions.

ESG programs are growing in importance

For companies across the oil and gas sector, Environmental, Social and Governance programs are becoming integral to both operations and results.

The unconventional resource business model remains in question

Effective inventory management systems streamline operations by reducing waste and inefficiency, which in-turn optimize your company's procurement performance.

Rapidly evolving technology is impacting the value chain

Better predict your customer needs through an effective supply chain planning process. Analyze your current supply chain to identify inefficiencies, potential improvements, and alternate sources for better quality or lower cost products.
