When you need experts onsite

Battle-tested principles to achieve your objectives—from planning 
and execution to project rescue.

Sometimes you know you need experts onsite. We deploy our people for two reasons. Your project is in imminent danger, or you need longer-term support. A small rescue team typically gets in, restores order and gets out. We can also provide experts who will lead a project for months, or even longer. 

Over the years, people have described startlingly similar feelings to us as a project begins to slip. A nagging sense of unease that forms in the back of your mind, then creeps down your spine, finally settling in your stomach. As with any type of anxiety, fear of the unknown creates the greatest insecurity. Being gradual, the need for action isn’t always clear. Until it is. Don’t wait that long. To gain more confidence about your decision-making at any point, call us in for a Readiness Review

Who will be on the team?

Epeus folk share two characteristics: the curiosity to know how things work and the cool head needed to identify root causes and resolve issues. We count chartered engineers and professional project managers (most with postgraduate qualifications) among our number. Many of our colleagues also have an MBA or equivalent. 

Our international contractors are multilingual and hold a range of recognized quality, commercial, contract and risk management qualifications. Many of our team members and contractors are respected industry voices, contributing to the wider community through papers and lectures.

PRIMA stands for Project Risk Management—and so do we. PRIMA is our core methodology, taking standardized processes from the Project Management Body of Knowledge and rigorously applying them to specific domains in the upstream energy industry. 

We started almost 20 years ago on a project for BP which led to us define their global rig intake and startup process. More recently, our method has helped a manufacturer of CHP boilers install their equipment on multiple projects in biomass plants. PRIMA can adapt to scrubber installation on ships to meet new sulphur emissions regulations. Or define the commissioning process for offshore wind farms. And much more beyond. 

The single factor that unifies the organizations we serve is the high level of complexity inherent in their projects—and the high impact of the risk if things go wrong. While some call this project management, we include the word ‘risk’ because in the world you operate in, it’s always present. 

With our PRIMA method, you’ll gain:

• Confidence in your risk identification
• Peace of mind from your risk mitigation
• Understanding from our independent review
• Assurance of the fitness of your processes
• Certainty of your governance
