Dawson has a record of success helping energy firms obtain permits — often ahead of schedule

The energy industry includes a complex and inter-related network of companies involved directly and indirectly in the production and distribution of energy needed to power the economy and facilitate the means of production and transportation.


Federal energy permitting is a complex process in which even small errors can result in delays or project cancellations.  At Dawson & Associates, we have a record of success helping energy firms obtain their necessary permits — often ahead of schedule.


With Dawson, you gain the benefits that come from decades of service at the highest levels of federal civilian and military government. These benefits include:


  • An excellent success rate for permit approvals from the Army Corps of Engineers and other federal agencies for energy infrastructure projects involving more than $20 billion in capital investment

  • Proven ability to resolve Native American tribal concerns with proposed energy projects

  • Unmatched understanding of the federal interagency energy infrastructure approval process

  • A reputation for transparency and thoroughness that expedites permit approvals.


Companies needing sustainable regulatory decisions for energy infrastructure projects recognize the competitive advantage that comes from adding Dawson & Associates to your project delivery team.
