Gas Utility Industry

 

As the gas utilities continue to drive infrastructure investments fueled by the need to replace aging infrastructure, environmental pressures, and public safety concerns, they are continuing to face constant change and challenges - both from internal and external sources. Facing pressure from the consumer side, the gas utilities are beginning to adopt new technology to serve an increasingly sophisticated customer base who in turn are beginning to demand choices in energy sources such as solar, wind and other renewable sources of energy. Consumers are also demanding better control over their natural gas usage.

Some of these challenges include:

  • Complex Infrastructure Projects
  • Upgrade of Aging Pipe Infrastructure
  • Changing Regulatory and Compliance Framework
  • Constrained and Aging Workforce
  • Budget and Schedule Overruns

To supplement their internal expertise, extend their capabilities and stay ahead of market needs, utilities will need to enlist trusted external service providers for needed support and industry knowledge.
