A secure, reliable, efficient, and affordable source of energy is the basis of modern commerce. As highly publicized blackouts, shortages, and cutoffs so clearly demonstrate, when the lights or the heat go out or the pumps run out of gas, business shuts down. At Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu (DTTL) and its network of member firms, we provide an array of specialists whose only job is to assist energy and resource companies.
Deloitte member firms serve 79% of the 2012 FG500 and overall penetration is between 54% and 89% depending on non-audit client fees. Deloitte member firms serve 63% (or 66 companies) of the 104 FG500 Energy & Resource companies. These include 8 of the 12 largest mining companies, 16 of the top 28 power companies, 39 of the top 60 largest oil and gas companies, 2 of the 3 largest shipping companies in the world, all of the water companies, and a significant number of government-owned National Oil Companies (NOCs).
Energy clients have specific needs that demand specialists. In response to those unique needs, DTTL and its member firms have developed over two dozen service lines focused on energy. We actively support global clients by ensuring we have the right people to serve each client. We have the capability of locating professionals with the experience needed and can facilitate their deployment to the client's location.
Energy & Resources professionals stay connected. Our network of member firms have a designated, active leader for every country where we have offices, as well as for every sector served and for every service line offered. Since 1998, each month these leaders join in conference to discuss industry developments, events, and issues. Since 1999, we have had a global energy intranet for the purpose of sharing industry knowledge among our practitioners.
