The world's energy demand continues to rise. Several projections for the next three decades imply an increase of 30% or more. Renewable energy resources will cater to a part of this projected increase. However, with 80% of today's energy consumption being covered by fossil fuels, these will evidently also be important 30 years from now.
In the future, some of the fossil fuels may come from less conventional sources, such as the onshore shale areas in North America. However, a substantial portion of oil and gas will still be produced in the offshore environment, and some in deep waters as well as in environmentally highly sensitive areas, such as the Arctic.
Our services to the oil and gas industry cover the initial design phases, the operational phase and the decommissioning phase. We have a rich heritage of knowledge accumulated over the past five decades – and we constantly strive to develop it further. With this global knowledge on water environments, we aim – in close dialogue with our clients– to provide data, information and solutions that can assist our clients in achieving cost effective, safe and environmentally acceptable designs and procedures for their activities. In doing so, we make extensive use of our three key tools: monitoring, modelling and laboratory testing.
The oil and gas industry is known for being global players. Often, local offices of major oil and gas firms undertake significant projects with support from their respective head offices. Our strategy for servicing this business sector is very similar. We have a local presence in different regions across the globe, that can tap into the Group's pool of experts from more than 27 countries worldwide. In this way, we make our global knowledge available locally.
In this newsletter, you will find examples of our activities related to the oil and gas industry. Enjoy the read and do contact us for any further information or assistance.
