How we work

Over the past 40 years, we have built a strong reputation for commitment, delivery and operational excellence.

We have a diverse client portfolio which includes many of the world’s leading energy companies.

We provide our clients with a range of services and capabilities that are recognised as consistently high quality. We do this through a range of innovative commercial models which allow us to tailor our services to the needs of each client.

From the moment we decide to bid on a project, the discipline begins. We identify risks from the outset, ensure a clear understanding of project complexity, and maintain our risk management rigour each step of the way.

For us, operational excellence is about constantly questioning what we do, and how we do it, in order to drive continuous improvement and maintain our competitive edge. In particular, our engineers have found new ways to take cost and complexity out of our projects by driving value engineering: using new construction techniques, challenging conventional wisdom, and making better use of automation – while still delivering on client demands for quality and certainty.

Local delivery has always been central to the way we work. We make a determined effort to:

  • Employ local people
  • Build local capabilities
  • Draw on local supply chains
  • Stimulate local economies
  • Engage with local communities

For example, in Saudi Arabia, we have committed to an overall purchase value of around US$500 million directly in the Saudi market, placing orders with more than 650 Saudi suppliers for goods and services. We've also initiated a specifically tailored training platform for Saudi employees. The Saudi Future Generation programme has provided engineering, construction, supervisory and safety skills training to over 220 Saudi employees.
