Resourceful Support in the Quest for New Resources

Our energy clients face many challenges as they explore and develop new energy sources in an environment of complex regulations, global competition and challenging economic conditions. Freese and Nichols supports our clients’ efforts with a flexible, client-specific approach with custom-tailored services designed to meet the unique needs of each client. Some clients need a complete range of services to take a project from planning to start-up, while others need experienced staff to augment their own capabilities on a short-term basis. Whatever their needs, we can help our clients with quality, cost-effective solutions that help them achieve their goals.

Oil and Gas (O&G) Engineering Services

Our quest to better serve O&G clients led us to merge with Nicol & Associates, Inc. in April 2011. Nicol & Associates’ expertise in O&G facilities’ design complements Freese and Nichols’ traditional engineering services and enables us to provide a full range of services to support O&G developers and midstream companies across the nation. Services include:

  • Economic and Feasibility Studies
  • Pipeline Engineering
  • Compressor and Pump Station Engineering
  • Treatment Plant Design and Operations
  • Process Design and Optimization
  • Due Diligence Investigations
  • Regulatory Approvals and Permit Acquisition
  • SCADA, Controls, Instrumentation, Distribution and Communications

In addition to these services, Freese and Nichols provides full-service civil engineering, program management, environmental, water supply, construction phase and project support services.

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Fueling Stations

Freese and Nichols has teamed with Dallas-based ZeitEnergy to develop CNG fueling stations in several regions across the United States. Natural gas is a cleaner-burning, domestically produced fuel with enormous potential as a motor vehicle fuel for transit, school buses, refuse trucks, service fleets and light duty commercial vehicles. The Freese/Zeit team can support clients' development of CNG fueling projects from initial feasibility studies, through design, construction, start-up and on-going maintenance. Likewise, the Freese/Zeit team has the expertise to implement CNG projects using any one of a large variety of project delivery and funding configurations.
