Cost effective operations are the key to successful energy projects, in both oil and gas and renewables. RPS Energy has been instrumental in providing project management and technical support as well as expert quality control for seismic surveys, site investigation, well operations, positioning and infrastructure projects.


RPS has been involved in computer-aided geohazard assessment for over 20 years. We can undertake evaluation utilising both high resolution site investigation data and suitable 3D exploration data.

Our services include detailed site-specific analysis of geohazards, and drilling constraints appraisals, often set in a regional or semi-regional context by making use of large area high resolution 3D data sets.

We have also undertaken wide area non-exclusive geohazard studies over areas in advance of licensing rounds.
