CLIENT’S EXPERIENCES

Martin Atkins,
FORMER CHIEF SCIENTIST AT BP IN CHINA AND CHIEF TECHNOLOGIST AT PETRONAS IN MALAYSIA AND CURRENTLY CEO OF GREEN LIZARD TECHNOLOGIES AND CTO OF POSEIDON PLASTICS IN THE UK.

We have worked with PDC for over 20 years now with various partners in the Oil & Gas, bio, clean energy and chemicals/fuels sectors.
PDC have helped us enormously with conceptual design studies and understanding competitive technologies, providing appraisal and TEA data in the same package to help our businesses strategies and make best decision for commercial design. The option to use PDC team throughout the development cycle as well really enhances option development and energy savings in order to “fix” the design to allow basic engineering packages to be developed for use with PDC. Working early with PDC at conceptual and TEA study has taken considerable amount of time off the path to commercialization. In some cases, the work with PDC has led us to stop projects early and prevent the team going down dead ends”.
