Moving to the next level

Your company has strong technical capabilities but has reached an inflection point. How to feel more certain?

You’ve built a reputation for delivering your expertise to the top of the upstream energy industry. But success brings its own challenges. Our clients are executives who are facing increased risk from projects that combine more stakeholders than before, or other innovations that make this different from business as usual. When projects consistently get ‘fast-tracked’, the truncated planning time means things get pushed further down the line risking due dates slippage—or worse.

Helping you deliver an integrated service

We developed our expertise at the sharp end of the drilling game. Today we apply what we’ve learned across the upstream energy—mitigating project risk on everything from rigs to offshore wind farms and biomass or geothermal plants. 

You want someone who gets what you do, while bringing an outside perspective. We advise on managing interfaces and processes. And help restore order in times of crisis to avoid reputational damage.

We can assess everything from your organizational readiness to market and commercial conditions. With us at your side, you can be more confident about the delivery dates you take to your clients or investment committees. 

“Epeus is a highly-regarded project management consultancy, that continues to attain and exceed my expectations.”

Fiona Bannister, Technical Services Manager, Centrica Energy Upstream

“Epeus understands the key requirements that are needed to achieve successful rig startups. Their personnel have deep experience and are knowledgeable in the areas of rig delivery.”

“Whenever we’ve needed Epeus personnel, they’ve always got there fast—anywhere in the world.”

Sachin Mehra, Vice-President, Asset Management, Valaris (ENSCO)

“The rigorous approach of Epeus’ project readiness review service quickly gave us a set of robust and independent insights into the state of readiness of our field development project. The findings proved to be extremely valuable.”

Leonardo Adami, Director, Petroleum Equity

“The bondholders appreciate the candour and view you guys provided. It was one of the key ingredients to getting consensus on the overall transaction.”

Ken Becker, Director, AMA Capital

"We needed knowledge and experience of a large complex project environment and leadership for our on-site technical team to get us across the finish line. Epeus stepped up to help us implement our project strategy with good discipline."

Peter Anson, Director, Projects and Sites Energy Business Unit, Valmet Technologies Oyj.
