Since the oil price collapse started in 2014, many mid- and large-scale projects have been cancelled or delayed, and many producers turned to short-cycled projects. A significant amount of investments in new supply has been lost since. To make up this shortage, investment opportunities are expected to arise in the global supply chain going forward in the future. On the other hand, many Oil & Gas companies has become more cost-conscious during the market downturn and are looking to parlay their own exceptional capabilities into true partnerships with other best-in-class companies to put together an ecosystem of expertise. This shift away from operations will help them replace fixed costs with variable costs, and construct commercial terms that balance risk, reward, and roles. In view of these trends, we foresee an increase in Oil & Gas transactions where our expertise and networks can be leveraged upon.

As part of our expansion effort, our Oil & Gas team consists of seasoned industry and banking professionals with over 20 years of experience in the Oil & Gas sector and is dedicated to advising on transactions in the following areas:

  • Offshore Wind Farm
  • Producing Oil & Gas Fields
  • Floating Production United
  • Natural Gas Power Plants
  • Offshore Oil & Gas Pipelines
  • LNG Terminals
  • Special Situations

In addition to our advisory capability for Oil & Gas transactions, the Group has also initiated fund investment into the Oil & Gas sector that aims to capture attractive investment opportunities in the sector as and when they arise.
