Volatile margins, aging assets, decarbonization, ESG commitments, and digitalization are causing oil and gas companies to transform the way they allocate capital.
Our project evaluations are more consistent and comprehensive, and the Copperleaf Value Framework provides us with a reliable means to understand trade-offs between investments of all types.
The oil and gas industry perpetually seems rife with uncertainty and a potential volatility. Between rising and diminishing consumer demand, price fluctuations, and [geopolitical issues], every day holds surprises and risks.
This is a moment for oil and gas companies to make thoughtful choices: both to improve their economic and reputational resilience, and to consider whether and how to reposition themselves to take advantage of the accelerating low-carbon winds of change.
Decision Analytics for Oil & Gas
Mounting pressures from investors, customers, communities, and other stakeholders are creating huge capital planning challenges for oil and gas companies globally. Organizations are being held accountable to deliver on their financial, safety, and reliability targets—while investing in new initiatives to embrace digitalization, explore growth opportunities, increase operational efficiency, and meet Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitments. To successfully navigate this challenging business environment, companies must find—and fund—the right balance of investments to demonstrate progress toward these goals and deliver meaningful results.
How can you be confident you’re making the best decisions that deliver the greatest value and drive your strategic goals?
Copperleaf® is helping organizations manage billions of dollars of oil and gas and petrochemical assets across the globe. By developing frameworks to evaluate all investment options on equal footing, we make it easy for clients to compare dissimilar projects—from those designed to increase safety and reliability, to initiatives that reduce fugitive emissions or build climate resilience—and create plans that are transparent, defensible, and aligned with strategic objectives.

Create optimal investment plans to drive your strategic goals
Delivering the highest value means doing the right projects at the right time. This is no easy task for organizations that deal with hundreds of potential investment options, with multiple alternatives and start dates to consider.
Copperleaf’s AI-powered optimization can evaluate the vast number of possibilities and identify the optimal plan within minutes. Sensitivity analysis can easily be performed to explore the impact of different funding, timing, and resource constraints on value and risk, and build a realistic, deliverable plan to achieve your strategic goals.
Proactively manage risk across diverse assets
Many oil and gas companies struggle to forecast sustainment needs across the diverse asset types that exist within their upstream, midstream, and downstream businesses. Copperleaf can help your organization optimize asset performance by calculating the risk, cost, and value over time across all asset types and determining optimal intervention dates. This enables asset managers to create the best sustainment strategy while accounting for all business constraints.
Plan with agility in a dynamic environment
As the business environment changes, new tactical and strategic priorities emerge. Copperleaf makes it easy to quickly run what-if analyses to explore various investment strategies, build consensus, and align investment decisions with new strategic priorities.
Copperleaf enables a continuous planning process by highlighting variances between planned and actual performance. No matter what twists and turns arise during execution, you’ll be able to re-optimize plans, communicate and defend any changes to stakeholders, and adapt quickly to maintain optimal business performance.
Drive your ESG strategy
Copperleaf helps organizations turn aspirational ESG objectives into action by offering a practical way to incorporate ESG metrics into everyday decision making. By expanding your assessment of project value to include impacts on ESG, you’ll be able to:
- Understand how each investment contributes to ESG performance
- Build plans that meet short- and long-term commitments
- Make trade-off decisions that balance business-as-usual and ESG goals
