We work with renewable energy, energy transition and sustainable energy solutions for traditional Oil & Gas national and international organisations and service providers as they now address issues of sustainability and emissions reduction and seek to make their business ever more efficient through automation. Most E&P companies are looking to identify opportunities outside the core E&P market as they look for longer term energy transition.  We are also active with the new energy companies that are emerging driving low carbon energy creation. We also organise and manage a number of industry networks and JIPs, under the OTM networks.

We have worked extensively in:

Digital and automation

There has been a huge drive towards digitising the Oil & Gas and wider value chain. This has seen innovation across the entire digital cycle from novel sensing technologies, advanced data analytics and automation. As an industry we expect to move to unmanned operating facilities, full field digital twins with learnings across assets and a fully connected operations base. We help clients drive change through the adoption of digital technologies, design of agile approaches to innovation by use case prioritisation and roadmapping key elements of the digital/ IoT pathway.


Working towards sustainable energy solutions such as zero-emissions (CO2 & CH4) in Oil & Gas operations and leveraging value chain. Drive to reduce emissions is underpinned by available technology options. These range from Zero-Flare solutions, to monitoring & detection emissions, as well as a key area of CO2 reduction in operations where companies are exploring a range of solutions across energy efficiency, electrification, battery & local renewable energy sources. Alongside renewable energy consulting, we work with companies in CCUS technologies (Carbon capture, utilisation and storage) and other solutions drawing on new energies value chains.

Energy transition

All Energy companies are exploring new businesses outside of the traditional E&P industry as part of longer-term energy transition. This can be adjacencies to existing businesses such as offshore wind, where expertise can be transferred, and competitive advantage maintained to hydrogen and electric charging points which can maintain business models in the long term. We are active in supporting businesses considering technology maturity and their energy transition strategy.

Efficient Oil & Gas production

The priority for all oil and gas producers to find efficient ways of producing assets. Currently there is less drive for high cost, difficult to access resources, rather the technological focus is to drive efficiency across existing assets, be it in Deepwater, Carbonates, or Unconventionals. We support oil and gas companies seeking new solutions to challenges, building business cases for change and sourcing solutions. We help service companies and vendors innovate.


Natural gas is an attractive energy source economically, operationally and environmentally and technology advances in natural gas valorisation and transportation are now enabling the production of sour gas reserves and the growth of a truly global market.  We help companies to reach their natural gas production objectives by providing advice on the latest technologies and processes, capturing and analysing industry wide lessons learnt, and identifying medium/long term investment opportunities and threats at a global level. Our work in this area includes benchmarking technologies available on the market, profiling the competitor landscape, identifying emerging innovative technologies energy efficiency, energy transition and formulating R&D plans, all with the view to reducing operational cost and risk.
