Environmental and Safety Engineering for Energy, Oil and Gas

Providing safety, environmental consulting solutions and risk analysis to the energy, oil and gas industries is the foundation of our business and a service we take great pride in offering. We have extensive experience throughout the entire project lifecycle, with our transferable knowledge extending through concept select, feasibility, front end engineering design (FEED), detailed design, construction, installation, commissioning, operations, decommissioning and abandonment. Whether it be providing high level advice in the concept stage or running the detailed quantitative numbers in the project detail, we can offer a wealth of expertise to any project. For more information, don't hesitate to contact us.

Energy, oil & gas experience


From onshore gas plant design to offshore oil and gas extraction, Vanguard Solutions provides established methods of managing safety and risk. Our experience works through all facilities right from the subsea installation, through pipeline infrastructure, to the onshore gas processing equipment. 


Qualified for offering first-rate quality


In particular, we boast a team of acknowledged industry experts in offshore fixed and floating facilities –  particularly with Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facilities. This expertise has already been proven to transfer effectively to the more novel Floating Liquified Natural Gas (FLNG) facilities that are currently being developed and deployed.


Recognised as experts in oil and gas safety case preparation and acceptance, our employees are able to integrate with a team at any stage of a project to ensure successful delivery of regulatory compliance. We do this through a comprehensive suite of formal safety assessment capabilities and an offering of the most skilled interface personnel available in the industry.


You come first


Within the oil and gas discipline of our business, we thrive on offering our clients the services they expect of a consultancy, but with the enthusiasm and care of having ownership of the project. From the facilitation of a risk or hazard workshop, right through to the in-depth development of a tailored safety case, we work to make sure that we keep clients operating whilst managing the risks and liabilities.
