Who We Are
Flexible, Independent, Custom
We have earned a reputation for tackling robust, multi-faceted projects that require both technical and project management excellence. Our client-focused approach rests upon three pillars:
- Flexibility: We know one thing when we start a project—things will change! We develop our scopes as a living document that address changing priorities and objectives throughout a project ensuring our deliverables meet our client needs.
- Independence: We are independently owned and operated—our executive staff have lived and breathed this work for almost 30 years. We are trusted advisors who are focused on providing accurate and defensible information to allow our clients to make key decisions. No outside influences change this approach.
- Custom approach: We utilize our experience to focus on the nuances of a project, which allows us to customize our approach to each engagement.

Different viewpoints, opinions, and ideas can propel innovation and drive change for good. Our commitment to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels of our company starts with hiring and retaining individuals with an array of talents and backgrounds. We all benefit when everyone can bring their authentic selves to work. Not only our employees, everyone. We actively seek out collaborators and suppliers that share this commitment. Together, we can solve the complex challenges facing the energy industry for the betterment of a changing—and increasingly diverse—world.
