Few sectors can rival the size, complexity, and breadth of the energy, mining, and natural resources sectors. The value chain from wellhead to wall socket is interlinked, interdependent, and often taken for granted. Today, this value chain is under unrelenting pressure from a number of disruptive forces, including radically evolving global demand; environmental requirements; increasing regulatory and political scrutiny; economic volatility; and an uncertain trade environment.
