Industry Transformation

As industries, business models, and the tech stack converge, new opportunities arise to monetize assets.
Sustainability in Oil & GAs


With pressure from consumers and investors to reduce the environmental and societal impact of energy production and utilization, in order to survive, Oil & Gas companies must reduce the carbon intensity of their operations.
Renewable Energy

Energy Transition

As with the transition from whale oil to kerosene as a source of energy in the 19th century, Oil & Gas companies face an analogous transition today as governments mandate a shift from hydrocarbons to renewables, hydrogen, and carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).
