The world’s appetite for energy is increasing. The Hydrocarbon sector requires a large reservoir of skilled personnel, capable of meeting the stringent industry standards. Mistakes on-the-job translate to lost efficiency, lost income and, sometimes, lost lives. Saurabh’s discerning eye ventured ahead to bridge this gap in skill development.
Saurabh co-founded SAGA Global Consultants by providing the Oil and Gas industry with professional development opportunities and educational materials including Instructor-Led training, technology-enhanced Learning and publications. Saurabh’s goal is to give every learner the knowledge that the industry requires to efficiently, effectively, and most importantly, safely do their job.

SAGA operates and maintains client’s oil and gas assets in a cost-effective manner as per international norms and standards. Coaching is provided by SAGA’s team for capacity building of local personnel to eventually operate and maintain the asset independently. The focus is on strong development of in-country capacity and indigenous capabilities.
The Oil & Gas industry is in a state of transition. The fall in oil prices, structural shifts in demand and supply trends, the evolving regulations on Sulphur cap in fuels, the possible repeal of the crude export ban in the US are just some of the numerous industry trends that add risk to this sector.
To address the new challenges, SAGA ventured into Technical Advisory and Project Management Consultancy as a part of its offerings. Areas of expertise of SAGA:
