Oil & Gas

Costain is a leading provider of full lifecycle services in the development, design, delivery and maintenance of oil and gas infrastructure.

The UK’s mature oil & gas industry is currently facing challenges relating to ageing assets, depleting fields and the need to revolutionise the industry in response to environmental concerns, maximising economic recovery and embracing innovative technologies. A major focus is to look at lower cost solutions, alternative commercial models and new collaborative approaches, whilst retaining safe and assured project delivery. The global concern for climate change has led to increasing focus on decarbonisation and energy efficiency within the sector. There has never been a more pressing time to innovate.

What might this mean?

  • Focus on value engineering in development of offshore and onshore greenfield and brownfield projects
  • Innovative approaches to maximise economic recovery of smaller, previously unviable fields
  • Improved collaboration between client and supply chain, ensuring efficient project delivery and cost effective outcomes
  • Optimisation of assets for life extension, performance enhancement and environmental compliance
  • Development and implementation of innovations and new technologies to reduce carbon output
  • Rethinking the way the UK approaches energy generation, utilisation and storage.
