Energy and Defense

Oil is the strategic commodity dominating world events: Our Energy and Defense Practice Group has the experience and skills to meet your energy needs

The U.S. Department of Defense is the largest consumer of energy in the United States, including petroleum products, natural gas, electricity, aerospace fuels, coal and alternative fuels. The U.S. military’s worldwide mission requires the “on-time & on-specification” delivery of energy products and services to U.S. forces.
