Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas Overview

We are here to help you. Our teams deliver experience and professionalism that can save you time and money, while meeting your unique project needs. With professionals experienced in environmental, geotechnical, and materials consulting services across all facets of the oil and gas industry, we are in every part of the process – upstream, downstream, and in between. Our project experience includes exploration and production, transmission, processing and storage, and downstream refining and distribution. From the environmental compliance of a single production location or processing facility, to engineering design and construction inspection of a new world-class refinery, we understand the evolving and emerging business issues affecting the operators of oil and gas industry assets.


Upstream Services


Your upstream oil and gas projects continue to increase in scale and complexity. You need a trusted partner to help navigate each project’s unique challenge. Our professionals are dedicated to developing the best solutions with a focus on safety. We have provided engineering services on thousands of projects throughout all of the major U.S. oil and gas basins. With a nationwide network of offices, we can initiate services easily and quickly. As a result, we have become the preferred environmental, geotechnical, and materials engineering consultant for a diverse group suppliers. Your projects benefit from our experience in developing innovative and time-sensitive solutions, and our ability to meet tight schedules and budgets.

Midstream Services


The requirements of design and building long, multi-state linear projects can be complex. We are your trusted partner, frequently collaborating with integrated teams of midstream, exploration and production, engineering firms, program managers, and contractors. We work to create efficiencies for large-scale projects and deliver projects on time and on budget. Our project experience includes the spectrum of services necessary for the site, permitting, design, construction, and operational phases of pipeline transmission and product storage. Our experienced scientists and engineers are here to help navigate the requirements of local regulatory, geologic, and environmental regulations.
Our midstream team provides hundreds of pipeline and infrastructure services in the past two years including:

  • Environmental
    • Secondary spill response and remediation
    • Asbestos surveys and abatement management
    • Water and wastewater management
    • Industrial hygiene and safety support
    • Facility response plan preparation/SPCC
    • GHG reporting and air quality support
  • Geotechnical
    • Site exploration and investigation
    • Geohazard assessment and mitigation PDF
    • Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) design and High Flux Isotope Reaction (HFIR) analyses
    • Compressor/pump foundation design
