Oil & Gas Exploration
Companies are multiplying their exploration initiatives across the globe and expanding their presence in areas that could materially impact long-term competitiveness in hydrocarbon production. They are encumbered with analyzing potential conventional and unconventional oil and gas resources in existing fields, new countries or challenging frontiers such as the Arctic and deepwater oceans. Despite the lack of easily accessible, reliable insights, firms must commit to investing in exploration activities.
Downstream Oil & Gas
Downstream business in the U.S. and Europe, where most of the world's refining capacity sits, is becoming less financially attractive as slow growth, aging infrastructures and stricter regulations have driven down refinery margins. Meanwhile, developing countries are planning global-scale refineries with less financial pressure, enjoying growing local markets and government support. Additionally, energy resources like renewable fuels, biofuels, gas to liquids (GTLs) and natural gas liquids (NGLs) are entering the energy supply pool bypassing refinery processes. What tools do you need to succeed?
Oil & Gas Research and Development
Long-term success and growth is highly dependent on the technologies, processes and scientific advancements that lead to finding and producing energy resources. Leading companies are consistently under pressure to solve big problems that affect society at large – and R&D initiatives play a critical role in addressing these challenges. Whether seeking ways to further develop unconventional hydrocarbon value chains, ensure the safety of employees and the communities in which they operate, or to identify approaches for improving productivity, innovation will always be at the forefront to success.
