Energy Infrastructure

Drawing on extensive international experience and a broad range of expertise, RPS is uniquely placed to support unconventional hydrocarbon projects including the emerging Shale Gas development market in the UK.

RPS is uniquely placed in being able to offer a broad-based and fully-integrated consultancy service to developers of unconventional gas projects – worldwide. Our experience ranges from numerous shale gas projects in North America to extensive involvement in Coal Seam Gas activities in Australia and South East Asia and their associated pipeline and LNG export terminal infrastructure.

RPS has been involved in many projects across USA, Canada, Australia and Asia Pacific advising clients on the identification of shale gas resource plays, providing geological, geophysical, seismic and well engineering advice through all stages of investigation and field development. We have also had extensive involvement in land registry and land access, consenting, stakeholder and communication services plus environmental, planning and water assessment aspects.

At a technical level RPS can provide expertise in base line monitoring, water resourcing, management of wastewaters, traffic impacts, noise and air quality, visual impact assessment and well integrity.
