Exploration & production

Exploration and Production (EPC) contractors count on Bureau Veritas to work hand-in-hand with them throughout the lifecycle to mitigate risks and costs.

Focusing on safety and cost to mitigate risks

Your challenges

Oil & Gas operators face numerous operational risks, ranging from employee and contractor safety to asset damage and interruptions to production. Production managers need help in managing those risks. A focus on safety, compliance and integrity is of utmost importance, as businesses aim to avoid accidents, non-conformities, and unplanned shutdowns that lead to a loss of production. Furthermore, operators seek maintenance and engineering services that will help them optimize maintenance, in turn supporting continuous production.
