Project risk management for upstream energy

How certain are you of project’s delivery?

What are your technical options? Do you have the right team? Are your contractors giving you the full story? Should you even be attempting it? And what’s the reputational risk for your firm—and for yourself?

Energy megaprojects fail for all kinds of reasons. We’ve seen most of them and helped our clients turn them around. When you’re on the hook for delivery, you need crystal clarity around the risks you face. 

What if you could confidently achieve your mandate?
