Oil & Gas

Big challenges; big rewards.

The oil and gas sector is rich in complex challenges and opportunities.


From exploration in ever more remote and inhospitable places to finding the right approach to renewables, from navigating global geopolitics to managing varied portfolios of businesses -

The stakes are high and big long-term decisions and investments have to be made in order to succeed. Moreover, the levels of risk and uncertainty up the stakes further still. All of which attracts us and plays to our strengths.

Our Experience

Berkeley has worked in the Oil and Gas industry for almost 20 years. A small selection of our client projects is summarised below. Below are some examples of current and recent work across the Oil and Gas Sector.

  • Working with the executive team of a leading oil and gas major we help create a bold strategic vision for their global commodity trading business
  • Over a number of years we were central in helping this create an industry leading global trading division.  We provided hands-on leadership for a number of critical global programmes that completely refreshed global trading systems and associated organisational capabilities
  • We helped an ambitious and rapidly growing gas trading business stabilise a major project to support expansion into the European market
  • On numerous occasions we have acted as experienced sounding boards and coaches for CIOs, programme directors, programme managers and governance board members faced with unfamiliar ‘stretch’ challenges
  • We helped an oil and gas major develop a new HR strategy that led to a global transformation programme to drive the recruitment of scarce skills critical to the organisation’s long-term success
  • We helped a leading gas trader to get a critical trading project back onto an even keel.  We then provided a small team to ensure it ran smoothly through to successful completion
  • For an oil super major we were the programme assurance partner of choice for a critical SAP-based process optimisation and alignment project for global downstream. Our multi-year engagement spanned several strategic releases in diverse global locations.
