Energy Services

We serve a broad range of energy clients: midstream oil and gas companies, universities and colleges, dairies and farms, military bases and federal agencies. Similarly, our broad energy services range from air emissions monitoring to natural gas pipeline design to solar-powered facilities and everything in between. Our engineers and specialists can handle regulatory permitting, integrity services, and civil and structural needs, giving us an understanding of your whole picture and the ability to address problems early.

A part of our suite of energy services is our focus on sustainability – an important component of our business and of particular concern for our energy clients. For our technical teams, this means assessing a project’s contributions to the community – environmentally and economically – and following a structured approach to sustainability in our deliverables. Through our sustainable initiatives, we strive to satisfy the present project goals while preserving the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. More than 60 of our employees are certified as Envision Sustainability Professionals or LEED Accredited Professionals.

Oil and Gas

Freese and Nichols serves oil and gas companies in shale and traditional plays nationwide. Whether your project is upstream or midstream, we support your efforts with a flexible, customized approach. You may need a complete range of services to take a project from planning to startup, or you may need experienced staff to augment your capabilities on a short-term basis. From feasibility studies to detailed engineering, we can help you with cost-effective solutions that achieve your goals.
