Strategic and commercial advisory for the energy sector
We provide strategic, commercial and technical advisory services for downstream clients operating worldwide, including refining, trading and supply, commercial fuels, lubricants and retail. Our experienced teams deliver services to support operational optimisation, strategy and health, safety, security and environment (HSSE) management.
Our refining, trading and supply practice covers business processes from crude acquisition through to product distribution.
The current volatile oil price environment and structural changes taking place in the downstream industry will present a number of challenges for refiners and marketers.
Industry refining margins will remain uncertain for the next several years, and consequently, the winners in the sector are likely to be those who are creative in delivering added value, as well as being aggressive in reducing their costs. We focus on supporting these two dimensions of improvement for our clients.
- Refining profit optimisation
- Health, safety, security and environment (HSSE), risk management and projects
- Trading and supply, margin optimisation
- Investment, due diligence and delivery
Our commercial fuels and specialities practice provides expertise for the different products, infrastructure and markets.
Commercial fuels and specialities are probably the most competitive part of the downstream market. Every efficiency, opportunity and advantage needs to be captured. The level of operational, strategic and marketing capability needed to win requires an organisation to develop truly integrated strategies and plans. Beyond asset development and utilisation, market, customer, safety and regulatory impacts all demand attention.
- Primary distribution
- Storage and handling
- Supply and distribution
- Customers and markets
The lubricants sector continues to be subject to a very challenging environment. With evidence of commoditisation across the value chain, original equipment manufacturer (OEM), globalisation, national oil companies growth aspirations and volume attrition within the developed economies, lubricant companies and their suppliers need to ensure robust strategies are in place to deliver sustainable, acceptable performance. RPS believes that a market-led approach will be key to success and we work with our clients to develop and deliver optimum revenue growth and cost efficiency opportunities.
Our retail practice provides unrivalled levels of hands-on expertise in all aspects of service station operation, network optimisation, and non-fuel income maximisation.
The challenges faced by the retail sector in a climate of fluctuating fuel prices, ageing real estate, and high customer expectations in emerging markets are well known. Maximising returns from each and every part of your real estate is vital in today’s competitive arena. RPS offers what is probably the most complete range of services in the business, ranging from strategy definition or review, market entry and convenience store development, to merchandising and store operation audit. Our deep expertise across the entire retail value chain ensures that a complete and integrated view of any problem and potential solutions are developed and delivered on time.
