Energy and Utilities

Optimize your entire energy business from upstream and midstream operations, through to downstream service industries.

Speed, scale and sustainable business outcomes, delivered safely

Sustainable productivity improvements are difficult to achieve. And yet we do it for our energy and utility clients every day. And the results last. We have improved productivity by 30 per cent whilst reducing budget overruns. We ensure a safe working environment that delivers best in class line changes, whilst minimising downtime.

How do we do this? 

We ensure everyone understands the systems, processes and control and why they exist. As we work together with the people doing the work we uncover processes that are not required or can be fixed to save lost time. Simple fixes costing a few pounds can save minutes here and there saving thousands of dollars over the year. Fixing the frustrations of the people means more engagement from the team and a better work culture.

What if you could...

  • Cut energy usage by 10% plant wide?
  • Reduce operating costs by $10 million?
  • Increase total savings from improved plant and field operations while exceeding the savings achieved through plant consolidations?
  • Advance your existing cost reduction effort, maximize the utilization of resources, and reduce the need for additional capital expenditures?

...with Proudfoot you can!

Our clients

Featured results

“For some of the older refineries, where some investment was necessary, the overall result rises to an 11 per cent reduction in energy usage. For our best-in-class refineries, we consistently delivered 4 per cent with no Capex. Across all, a cultural change has permeated all levels of our sites. The output was a blueprint for change which we have then used across our refineries.” Global Head of Refining

Case studies

Reduced energy consumption: A Head of Refining was convinced they could make improvements by focusing on making people pay more attention and increasing energy awareness. The objective was to reduce energy consumption by 4 per cent across seven refineries located in Europe and the United States, but with no capex spend.

Improved organization-wide operational efficiencies: With a pressing need to manage input costs, especially energy, a CEO wanted to improve operational efficiencies, cut energy usage by 5%, and improve yield.
