“Creating the right business environment for successful technology deployment”
Working across the value chain we identify and support the development, commercialisation and management of energy technology
Without technology the energy industry would not exist. From the bamboo drill pipes used to drill wells in China in 400BC, to the 21st century challenge of well abandonment, to novel materials for turbine blade construction, technology can unlock resources, reduce cost & uncertainty and enable safe & sustainable energy production.
At WSS we believe that very little is genuinely novel, and different industries have common challenges. Understanding how technologies from different industries can be redeployed, and how to find and deploy the right technologies can be equally as powerful as large scale in-house R&D programs.
We have provided support for the development of technology and R&D projects for over 20 energy companies around the world. Our experience bridges strategy, operations and R&D with a common theme of ensuring that the right decisions are made about deploying the right technologies to create bottom line growth.
