Natural gas and oil
Our natural gas and oil experts are well-versed in the details affecting all phases of the extractive process, from exploration to drilling and production. Our clients have ranged from companies with a few wells to the major players operating in the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea. Our expertise and guidance are invaluable to producers, operators, explorers, and drillers alike. We work with gas transmission companies and have professionals that were previous controllers at oil and gas companies as well.
Our mining experts understand the risks facing mining companies, and offer an array of services and expertise to mining clients of all sizes. Our clients include publicly traded coal companies and operators in multiple regions of the U.S. We know the nuances of mining tax, accounting, valuation, and risk factors that position us well to perform consulting and litigation support. This broad and deep expertise helps strengthen our clients’ abilities to meet their goals.
Dean Dorton specializes in risk advisory services for electric cooperatives. We know the cooperative risk environment well, which allows us to build meaningful risk programs. Our risk work includes support from HR, payroll, IT, and benefits experts at the firm. We provide an annual cooperative risk list along with key performance indicators to demonstrate our commitment to know this industry.
