Global demand for oil and gas as a source of energy continues to grow as reserves of conventional supplies are declining. While mature economies are becoming increasingly energy efficient, higher levels of demand from emerging economies such as China and India heavily outweigh any energy savings.

The challenge

Driven by this worldwide demand for hydrocarbons, replacing reserves is an increasing challenge that forces worldwide exploration to more difficult or populated areas and new frontiers such as offshore deep water or remote and vulnerable regions such as the Arctic.

In this environment new and unconventional oil and gas developments become more feasible and attractive, but also create new challenges for technical and operational safety. Royal HaskoningDHV has extensive experience and expertise in the oil and gas sector, enabling us to support clients with new techniques in difficult environments.

With our focus on ecological and social responsibility we deliver innovative, viable and sustainable solutions to solve our client’s challenges, achieve their ambitions and enhance society together.

Our approach

Royal HaskoningDHV has an extensive track record in the oil and gas sector. We work closely with our clients to deliver innovative, cutting edge developments including shale gas, carbon capture and storage, water injection, exploration of Arctic reserves, zero emission, low energy facilities and biofuels.

Providing local multidisciplinary and integrated services through our global office and partner network, we support international and national oil companies, joint venture projects, subcontractors and service providers. Our tailored consultancy and engineering services contribute effectively to the successful planning, design, implementation, commissioning and operation of a number of investment projects, as well as management of contaminated land.

Public opinion is becoming increasingly concerned and critical of new developments in complex technologies that could impact the population or is perceived to do so.
