Power and Energy

The World Of Power And Energy Has Never Been More Dynamic

Over the past decade, the world has seen fundamentally new sources of energy come online. Oil, gas, natural resources like wind and solar have permanently altered the industry. Many major suppliers have ventured into several of these sectors simultaneously.

Platform drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and the Middle East. The oil sands of Alberta. Lithium-ion factories in Cleveland and Kathmandu. Nuclear reactors at Indian Point and in India. Wind farms in Palm Springs, the Pacific Ocean and the North Sea. Wells, both onshore and offshore. Dams and grids, large and small. The Power and Energy group of Crawford Global Technical Services® (GTS®) has knowledge and experience across the diversity of issues that are unique to this industry. The acquisition of Lloyd Warwick International Limited (LWI) builds on Crawford’s existing capacity in the energy market and bolsters our onshore and offshore energy loss consulting capabilities, demonstrating an unparalleled dedication to client service.

The matrix of issues encountered by this industry is virtually infinite, encompassing:

  • Environment
  • Exposure to consumers, corporations, and governments
  • Geography (local, national, global)
  • Liability and litigations
  • Operations failures
  • Platforms
  • Regulatory issues
