For 40 years we've been delivering industry defining innovation throughout the lifecycle of onshore and offshore assets, optimising safety, spend and production.
Enhancing recovery from existing fields and exploiting new fields in difficult environments and uncertain market conditions present our oil and gas industry with many technical and economic challenges. We have the breadth and depth of expertise, the intellect and the drive to overcome these challenges and help our clients to realise the potential of these fields.
Overcoming the challenges
We think like an operator; we’ve been working together with some of our clients for 40 years so we understand their goals and can share their vision.
It matters to us that:
> Safe and cost effective constructability and operability is inherent in concept selection, FEED and detailed design
> New assets are future proofed for economic field development at a later stage if required
> All risks and benefits in maintenance programs can be challenged in a single list to optimise operational spend
> Transfer from design, through operations, life extension and decommissioning is seamless
> Lessons learned on asset integrity management are fed back into design to optimise capital spend and reduce operational expenditure
An independent view on concept selection
For any project, the most opportune time to make the biggest positive impact on project cost is early in the conceptual phase. Listening and exploring options with our clients, helping identify critical issues for optimising overall project economics at concept stage is where we add value.
We aren’t trying to favor a particular type of structure, process or approach to subsea. We are concept neutral so it’s all about what works best for our client and their success.
Working as part of a global community with our clients, industry partners and academia, we are listening, imagining and co-creating the best solutions in:
Design and engineering of fixed and floating production facilities from foundation to flare tip, including subsea engineering and all associated project services.
We embrace the increasingly complex challenges presented by high pressure, high temperature environments, aging assets, process optimisation, marginal fields and oil price fluctuations.
Design and engineering of onshore facilities, including LNG, pipelines, and all associated infrastructure and project services.
ASSET INTEGRITY AND PRODUCTION OPTIMISATION
Reducing operating costs and maximising production through facilities analysis, design and engineering for all classes of assets. We focus on cost-effectively improving production, safety and reliability.
We thrive on the technically challenging, innovative pieces of a project that add real value. We constantly look for new techniques and approaches, future trends and client needs to spot the opportunities where we can transform the seemingly impossible into the possible.
We imagine and realise projects that go beyond code in order to maximise the potential of new and existing fields and to help move new technologies forward.
STRIVING FOR THE GREATEST ACCURACY
Our advanced modeling and analysis tools provide our clients with the highest levels of accuracy and confidence in our design and engineering deliverables. This certainty and accountability combined with the integrity of our experts means better judgement of priorities, confident decisions and optimisation of spend.
ENRICHING INDUSTRY LEARNING
Through our connections to a diverse range of experts, both within Atkins and with other industry and academic organisations, we bring diverse approaches and different ways of thinking together, helping us to better answer our clients’ challenges.
