Who We Are

For over 30 years Aupec has been delivering actionable insight to the oil and gas Industry.

Since then Aupec has provided petroleum economics, training, consultancy and benchmarking services to major governments, fortune 500 companies and International NGOs.

Central to our business are our benchmarking services.  Our benchmarking journey began with North Sea operators over 30 years ago, analysing their IT spend and resourcing. Since then we have worked in partnership with the world’s largest integrated oil and gas companies to develop a deep understanding of their IT cost benchmarking needs across all major operating segments and business elements. 

At Aupec, our team take nothing at face value. They listen to you and challenge you with experience and perspective.  They dig deeper to discover meaningful insight behind the numbers to ultimately reveal transformational opportunities for change within your organisation.  We believe the liberating effects of the truth transform organisations such as yours and strive to provide meaningful metrics that will transform your business.
