Cost Benchmarking Analytics


  • We support E&P companies benchmark project performance across both time and cost, helping them to better understand how planned and/or completed projects perform against peers. By analyzing the service cost environment and other factors, we are able to provide insights into areas of success, where to improve and best practices. 
  • With project costs and service prices evolving dynamically, understanding these trends has seen increased interest among investors. We support investors in understanding the fundamentals of the industry, future development across price and cost scenarios, player landscape, supply chain mechanisms and more, and have successfully supported investors on both the buy side and sell side over recent years. 
  • As a data oriented advisory, we use our global databases with field-level data to support industry organizations in understanding the possibilities (and limitations) with respect to technology development. We assess the impact that new technology could have on costs, and our insights are presented regularly to companies, organizations and governments around the globe.
