Portfolio Management & Business Development

We provide advisory and project services with an integrated Exploration and BD Focus, but can also address the complete upstream life-cycle:

  • Portfolio Analysis and review of External Environment, Options and Targets. 
  • Idenification of opportunities in line with company strategy
  • Reviews and reports of areas and companies
  • Complete Farm-in and Farm-out evaluation and management.  Exploration wells, Assets and M&A
  • Valuation of opportunities (exploration wells, assets, companies)
  • Decision Framing and Economic Evaluation (Dependencies, Options)


 Our approach to Exploration Strategy involves identification of strategic options based on the current portfolio, targets & constraints in addition to the external environment.   Evaluation of the alternative choices considers a number of factors including risk & uncertainty, exit options as well as impact on budgets, resourcing and organisation.  Choice of strategy typically involves iteration to ensure compatibility with the Business Plan.  We can provide expertise on an advisory basis, via workshop delivery & facilitation or as a more detailed analysis. In all cases we aim to work closely with you and/or your team, and maintain a practical approach which considers both Exploration and Business Development.  We have a strong focus on how to communicate risk, uncertainty and strategy in order to gain realistic expectations and a common understanding with decision-makers.
