We offer extensive experience in plant management and operations in processing industries like oil and gas, energy, chemical processing, and process manufacturing.

We help our clients make system improvements to:

• Reduce operational costs
• and comply with regulations.


HCG helps our clients ensure that plant personnel are part of the planning and implementation stages for operational improvements; that everyone has clear documentation and training for all work processes; and that everyone understands the plant’s objectives and culture.


Maximizing the received value of plant assets is a key objective that informs all of our assessments, planning, and technical implementation. Our Total Plant Reliability® helps corporations increase profits and maximize production of quality products.


HCG is obsessed with well-planned and well-implemented processes because that’s what makes it possible for our clients to optimize plant efficiency, establish a strong safety culture, mitigate risk, respond responsibly when a crisis does occur, and innovate easily over time for continuous improvement and competitiveness.
