What is Riskwell?

The Riskwell company was founded in 2020 by Chris Bird and Patrick De Souza initially to resolve inefficiencies in project delivery in North Sea oil and gas operations. With depressed oil prices and spiralling costs, it was becoming increasingly difficult to create profitable opportunities.


With an in-depth knowledge of project and risk management, and also complex safety critical programme delivery, we set about creating tools, processes and practices that would improve decision-making and drive best practice in delivery environments.


Riskwell software and methodologies have been developed for all sectors.

Better Decisions: Better Outcomes TM

Riskwell aims to improve the decisions that companies make by using our best-in-class software packages, leading to enhanced probability of success.


An additional competitive advantage we offer is an integrated set of risk consultants who have business, technical and analysis expertise, which can further aid business performance.


We have a mid-term plan to deliver a suite of software solutions that will dramatically improve business performance:


Riskwell Protect: our first product, providing a core risk management system covering risk registers, reporting and analytics


Riskwell Pathways: dynamic economic modelling that will aid strategic decision-making


Riskwell Future Products: Further products will follow to complete the suite
