  • Focus on Valuation of Assets Moves From Exploration Upside to Mature Asset Cash Flow

    Focus on Valuation of Assets Moves From Exploration Upside to Mature Asset Cash Flow

    8th July 2016

    The Acquisition and Divestment (A&D) market has changed. Previously, exploration and discovery upside was sought after with new development potential or undeveloped acreage firmly part of the transactional value expectation. 

    However the A&D market has moved, with value now focussed on mature, developed assets that bring instant cashflow. With the change in focus, the due diligence of assets for a potential transaction also requires modification, with the focus now being on enhancement and improvement of current operations, and as such, asset due diligence now requires far more detailed consideration of the surface facilities, costs and abandonment liabilities.

  • A New Cold War in International Gas Markets

    A New Cold War in International Gas Markets

    12th June 2014

    Rising tensions in Eastern Europe emanating from Russian geopolitical ambitions in Ukraine have shaken NATO strategists into an urgent review of security on its eastern frontier.  However an equally significant competitive issue between the two sides is developing in the international gas market. While Western Europe must address its undue dependence on a potentially hostile Russia, massive increases in LNG exports from North America, Australia and the Gulf States over the next ten years will double supply capacity and, with echoes of earlier Cold War rivalry, create serious competition for Russia and its Caspian region neighbours in international gas markets.
