Advisory

Learn More

Gas markets are inherently complex, as there is significant interplay between producers, infrastructure and demand centers. Our gas market consultants have deep knowledge of their respective markets, and experience in understanding these dynamics. Leveraging our gas market infrastructure, we are able to provide detailed insights on the assets, while also being able to sensitize this and incorporate risk factors such as competitiveness relative to renewables, government policy and cost development, to help clients prioritize and develop sustainable strategies for the long term. 

  • We have experience supporting clients in acquisitions from reservoir to consumer. For upstream fields it is key to understand local gas balances and the long-term price outlook. For midstream infrastructure it is also key to understand the relative competitiveness of different basins and understand how this could affect the flow. Our consultants have provided numerous clients with insights on these topics, assisting them to reach wise investment decisions across key petroleum basins in Europe and North America. 
  • With the emergence of LNG as a traded commodity, the global gas market has opened up. We have supported both buyers and sellers of gas, as well as infrastructure and transportation providers in strategy development in this new environment. Pricing, volatility, volumes and competitiveness of sources have been key topics. 
  • The decline in the cost of renewables, increased energy efficiency and efforts to reduce carbon emissions have all had an impact on the risk of gas assets. We have supported clients in understanding this risk and how it relates to specific assets and portfolios.  
  • For many companies and governments, oil has been the key focus, even if significant value potential lies within the gas portfolio. Through our advisory services, we have supported a range of stakeholders in identifying the value potential of gas resources and provided insights on how this value could be captured through alignment of incentives, optimized fiscal regimes and infrastructure access, among other avenues.
