UPI develops global strategies through the process of end-to-end experience design. We introduce team members as key stakeholders through the stages of initialization, specification and operation. We go far beyond consulting because our expertise goes far beyond the borders of any one project or program.
Our process underpins the strategy of all stages of energy projects: Appraise, Select, Define, Construct, Operate and Maintain. Based on our Total Life Cycle approach, it is systematic and repeatable to deliver boots on the ground responsiveness, project innovation and effective solutions for the most pressing problems that our clients encounter across the globe. We plan for more than execution. We plan for a long-term relationship with our clients because we understand the importance of every discipline, design and decision.
Working with energy clients around the world, UPI defines the scope and risks of major capital projects in greater detail – identifying costs, minimizing overall asset deployment and accelerating the visibility to critical decision-making information. Our team of experts employ their skills to navigate clients through the Initiation Phase (Pre-FEED and FEED) with a full life cycle assessment to include:
- Field development planning
- Cost estimating
- Alternatives analysis
- Material procurement
- Material selection
- Chemical treatment facilities
- “Boots on the Ground”
- Additional Client-specific requirements
The output is data. But clients need more than just data. UPI combines the extensive experience of the front-end of projects with the global, practical experience in total project delivery and on-site plant operation. That means data becomes crucial, decision-making information that is used to objectively evaluate the probabilities of each project. With ever-changing global market realities, UPI leverages its knowledge for the value of each client initiative in order to present a plan of action to include:
- Market conditions assessment report
- Business modeling and financial analysis
- Technology application and selection
- Site survey and selection
- Configuration and design methodologies
- Existing pipeline ecosystem enhancements
- Operational plan development
