Peace of mind

Feel more certain about budgets, timing and contractor promises with our exacting risk evaluation.

Are you about to start a major project? Or make a key investment? Do you need a cold eyes review of your plans? We combine technical and industry insights with project management expertise to give you the edge you need.

Field operators

If you’re an oil explorer or producer, you know that owning a rig or hiring one creates two different sets of risks. We know what’s needed in each case. While ‘rig intake’ and ‘rig startup’ are our most common projects, we also advise on systemwide project processes that enable better long-term planning to bring consistency across your portfolio. Among our other achievements, we developed BP’s rig intake process following the Macondo incident.

Across upstream energy

We cut our teeth in the oil and gas industry, but our expertise applies to multiple domains. From biomass energy conversion plants to geothermal energy generation and offshore wind farms, when you own the source of upstream energy production, your projects involve major expenditure and risk. We can apply the principles and lessons we’ve learned in the harshest conditions to mitigate risk in your projects.

“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."
