What We Do

Asset Performance Networks is the trusted leader for improving asset and operational performance in petroleum, chemical, and energy companies worldwide. We work with our client’s most critical assets—their people, processes, and production facilities—in order to help them achieve safe, competitive, predictable outcomes on their high-risk events—namely capital projects and turnarounds.

Since our company began, we’ve prided ourselves on providing actionable solutions that go beyond mere academic assessments. These solutions are a powerful hybrid of software as a service (SaaS) and consulting expertise that together generate measurable results.

Our consultants hail from a broad range of disciplines across Industry. They are internationally recognized leaders and experts in project management, turnaround management, operations, benchmarking, risk management, and more. Their expertise is supported by our licensable suite of web-based project and turnaround management tools. These tools allow organization leaders to see event status at a glance, and provide the means for site teams to track progress and alignment.

Among these tools, NaviTrack stands out as an Industry standard. A web-based work process deployment tool, it is currently in use at over 30 companies and more than 200 refineries, chemicals plants, gas plants, and offshore facilities across the globe.

Our tools and processes are based on Industry best practices identified using the AP-Networks Turnaround Database, the AP-Networks Capital Project Database, and the AP-Networks Upstream Turnaround Database. These databases contain information from more than 2,000 projects and turnarounds from the exploration and production, refining, petrochemical, and chemical industries. Combined with the expertise of our consultants, these databases are a powerful tool linking demonstrated practices with measurable outcomes.

AP-Networks is the Industry’s knowledge network, and our depth of experience and insight is unmatched. Since our founding, we’ve focused on improving the state of Industry knowledge, and propelling project and turnaround performance to new heights. Industry leaders not only recognize the AP-Networks brand, they insist on our company’s involvement in their most critical improvement initiatives.
