Energy: Programs can take on many forms and include multiple types of installations. A program can also include managing different types of technologies. We coordinate the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), including cost and schedule. Water: The need for water is increasing globally, but treating and delivering it is becoming increasingly complex. Our program management "tool box" includes software, procedures and processes for efficient management of staff, schedules and budgets. Telecommunications: We offer program management services for both wireless and wireline networks. This includes process design and implementation, quality assurance and risk management. We also offer complete EPC. Governments: Black & Veatch is among the nation's top providers of program management services to the U.S. government. We lead programs for the Department of Defense, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Homeland Security, both domestically and globally. Smart City: We are experts in multiple, concurrent distributed infrastructure programs, with vast experience in the intricate planning, permitting, site design and construction related to Smart City engagements. Black & Veatch offers a proactive approach to construction management (CM). This lowers cost, improves quality and minimizes construction claims. We offer tailored CM services in our four core markets – energy, water, telecommunications and governments. Our vast experience as engineer-constructors, in addition to our strong startup and commissioning abilities, makes us uniquely qualified to manage complex projects for clients globally. 0 Related Insights With Grid Modernization, Utilities Poised For Most Visible Transformation The annual Strategic Directions Report series offers analysis and insights into key issues and trends facing the smart cities and utilities, electric, natural gas, and water utility sectors. FLNG Solutions Prove To Be Much More Than Potential It was roughly a decade ago when the initial introduction of floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) solutions sought to help bring uneconomic gas reserves offshore, such as those in remote locations, to the market. Over the past few years, however, we’ve watched as offshore FLNG capabilities have moved closer to the mainland, offering a very flexible and economical solution to operators looking to offload their supply around the world. Four Big Trends in Gas-to-Power Hold Promise for U.S. Market Major energy shifts are afoot, and the United States will play a critical role going forward. The EIA projects that by 2022, the U.S. will become a net energy exporter, according to its newly released Annual Energy Outlook 2018. For natural gas, this shift will happen even earlier, around 2020, the EIA says. Market Strives to Deliver Over Pipeline Challenges As if the persistent low-price environment wasn’t enough, rampant natural gas production in the Appalachian and Permian Basins is ramping up concern that pipeline take-away capacity can’t keep up. This comes as the United States natural gas industry prepares to enter one of its strongest growth periods to date, driven by increasing global demand for low cost natural gas supplies and growing domestic demand for cleaner energy sources. Southeast Asia’s Journey Toward a Cleaner Energy Future Strong economic growth, low gas prices and environmental goals are transforming natural gas demand in Southeast Asia. Ready to Learn More?
