Modern economies depend on reliable and affordable access to natural resources including oil, gas, coal, minerals and metals to provide the fuels and raw materials required to sustain improved global living standards. At the same time, the need to address climate change is driving a dramatic shift in the way we use natural resources and their role in our net zero future.

We help our clients deliver and achieve better outcomes across the oil and gas, mining and renewable energy sectors. Our experience and expertise helps our clients manage the complexity of these large programmes to meet goals by deploying effective supply chain solutions and achieving cost and schedule certainty through disciplined project controls.

Market context

As key contributors across all three scopes of emissions, the natural resources industries recognise the need to decarbonise. At the same time, a rising global population and improving standards of living will continue to drive growth in demand for energy, the commodities essential for society, and importantly, the raw materials for use in low-carbon technologies.

Renewable and alternative energies including solar, wind, biofuels, hydrogen and carbon capture and storage have grown rapidly in recent years and are at the centre of the energy transition.

In shaping a secure and sustainable future for all, the focus is on delivering major capital programmes that improve efficiency in production, reduce carbon emissions and place greater reliance on renewable energy sources.

The disruption sweeping the natural resources industries brings a combination of opportunities and challenges. By combining advances in technology with effective supply chain and cost strategies, we can create the next generation of assets that deliver lower-carbon products and remove emissions from the atmosphere.

Meeting the challenges

We help natural resources companies achieve successful outcomes and results from investment. We support the full project lifecycle, helping inform strategy, reduce commercial risk and enable performance during delivery.

Underpinning our approach is the quality of our people, our passion for excellence and the ambition we have to deliver success for our clients.

We partner with clients to realise opportunities through:

  • Better connecting: we inform, shape, and connect natural resources projects and programmes to marketplace innovation and global leading practice. We support opportunities for investment and benchmark performance to support decision making.
  • Broadening strategy: we define and execute sustainable strategies for organisations that own, operate or invest in natural resources programmes. We help develop business cases, drive whole life asset management and return on investment.
  • Effective set-up: we set-up projects for success by establishing programme operating models, developing baselines, building capability, engaging the market and establishing appropriate technology platforms.
  • Controlling and managing delivery: we relentlessly drive and assure performance to deliver successful outcomes. We implement lessons learned and enable clients to meet, and beat, performance targets.

In 2022, we acquired JukesTodd, an advisory and project management firm based in Australia. Doubling the size of our natural resources business in Australia, our combined team works together as Turner & Townsend JukesTodd offering project and programme management, commercial management and advisory including environmental, social and governance (ESG) services across the mining and clean energy sectors.
