Our clients want solutions that create and sustain value. And Kent delivers. With a blend of practicality, experience, expertise, sustainability and innovation at every project stage. Our expertise supports both green field and brown field opportunities and addresses all elements of the engineering value chain. From the earliest of concept, through pre-FEED and FEED into detailed engineering execution, operational readiness engineering and optimisation and enhancement to decommissioning/re-use.
To support our clients in making their ambitions a reality, we have a global team of consultants and engineers who are the best in the industry. Our experience and capabilities span the upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas markets as well as new energies including wind, biofuels, hydrogen, energy storage, carbon capture and sequestration and decarbonisation of existing assets. We also service the process, chemical, plastics and refining sectors.
We operate right across global market sectors from primary hubs in North America, Australasia, UK and Middle East as well as our global engineering centre in India.
Kent people are out of the box thinkers. We go beyond codes and consulting to bring pragmatic forward-thinking solutions to operations and projects quickly and effectively. We tackle the complex technical challenges head on to develop answers that can be implemented safely and cost competitively.
Our consultant experts excel in process engineering, structures, safety, environment, electrical and instrumentation, subsea and drilling, naval architecture, software programming, materials, mechanical, fluids and flow assurance, simulation and analysis, expert witness services, sustainability solutions and due diligence.
We deploy our automated and digitised tools to develop and deliver with certainty and cost competitively across our energy markets.
We’re justifiably proud of our 100+ years of engineering legacy in the energy markets. It’s seen us undertake ground-breaking work setting major global standards, contributing to regulation and R&D committees for both the oil and gas and new energies markets.
Our engineering operating model integrates our global expertise with complimentary industry standard software. This guarantees predictable outcomes that are generated through standard workflows and optimises the advantages of our Global Engineering Center in India.
Our teams are delivering from the earliest of concept studies, pre FEED and FEED, detailed engineering design, optimisations and enhancements – to new facilities and existing facilities with the rigour required to deliver first time.
Complementing our core engineering delivery capability, our specialist consultancy and design assurance services discover, prevent and correct errors early in the design process to save on time, cost and give our customers complete peace of mind.
Combining high-end technical engineering knowledge with modern software development is a winning combination for a successful project outcome. Our highly skilled development team employ both to solve the Energy industry’s most testing technical challenges to optimise the entire business chain.
This is a far from a one-size fits all capability. Each software solution is carefully selected for each project including high quality, custom-made software applications using a variety of technologies and platforms. They range from desktop applications and services to web and cloud solutions and office automation.
A web-based environment for all assets, across multiple disciplines.
A web environment for managing anomalies and associated data (assessment, photos, etc.) and integrated with an inspection workpack to provide a streamlined inspection process.
A modern asset weight management solution, providing suitable control, traceability and reporting, aligned with ISO 19901-05.
A suite of tools to streamline the day-to-day integrity management processes and tasks and improve efficiency.
A solution for displaying relevant data on an asset’s plot plan layouts (e.g.: inspections, anomalies) for better visualisation and understanding of risk.
A plant capacity assessment tool, running various production cases and integrating outputs with custom capacity model calculations for further analysis and debottlenecking of a plant.
This digital solution interfaces with the existing asset process models to allow the team to model the whole lifecycle of an asset including changes to production profiles, economics, or plant changes to quantify all the emissions from the plant through life.
A fully integrated system for collecting, processing sensor data and performing spectral analysis to detect a shift in the natural frequency of a platform that could indicate potential brace failures in near real-time.
A standalone service that integrates live plant data from an operational historian with simulation software to determine and publish new properties.
MODOT is an optimisation tool that has revolutionised our design of offshore wind projects. Using advanced optimisation algorithms, we can produce design iterations in days rather than months to add value from the start and can save clients 1000s of tonnes of steel across a wind farm through efficient designs.
A standalone service that assesses, optimises and iterates offshore wind farm designs and layouts to assess CapEx, OpEx and Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE). This tool brings value whether used when bidding and assessing lease areas or understanding layouts or installation phasing. Using our catalogue of available date or bespoke information provided by Clients, this tool will quickly and visually provide feedback on the available options.
