Energy and utility companies operate in a unique climate of risk, uncertainty and volatility – where the challenges are intensifying daily.
Upstream operators – those involved in the exploration and production of raw energy resources – are under pressure to make better use of their aging assets and diminishing reserves, while reducing exploration and development costs.
Downstream operators – those focused on refining, storing and delivering energy – must grapple with transportation and security logistics, huge investments in refinery and distribution facilities, and uncertainty as to where and when market demand will appear.
Utility companies are struggling to accurately predict retail demand, control supply costs, protect delivery systems, minimize regulatory disallowances and sustain good credit ratings – in an environment sharpened by deregulation.
Across all sectors of the energy and utility industries, companies must make reliable decisions amid hundreds or even thousands of variables – while improving profitability, controlling costs and enhancing operational efficiency.
