When it comes to the energy industry, and in this market, particularly refinery operations and management other downstream activities, there is often a big disconnect between services clients seek and services consultants provide. The situation is ripe with irony, however, in that the disparity occurs not due to a lack of need from the client or a lack of ability by the energy consultant, but due to trouble in relaying objectives and exchanging ideas between the parties. There lies the secret tool to survival in the downstream market: communication.

It can be frustrating for both advisor and client. Highly skilled consultants with decades of experience have an unending flow of ideas, ways of increasing efficiency, reliability, profitability, and ways of cutting costs and improving safety. But helping clients identify opportunities only happens with open and frequent communication. Learning when and how to identify opportunities and getting the most of advisory solutions is more important than ever to the survival and health of downstream companies in the current state of the sector.
