Energy Advisory Service

Comprehensive data, analytics and insights for financial sector leaders focused on traditional energy markets

Energy markets are undergoing generational change as climate priorities influence government policy, capital allocation, and investor behavior. The pace of transition, which is so far uneven across geographies, will both create new opportunities in traditional energy markets, and potentially strand capital tied to uncompetitive, legacy projects.

The Energy Advisory Service provides investors a full workflow solution to understanding competition and activity within the evolving traditional energy landscape, with particular emphasis on oil and gas markets. Our market analyses, prices, and regional detail help the financial community assess the market conditions surrounding their investments, identifies A&D opportunity for firms interested in repositioning their energy portfolios and sheds light on the competitive environment for private equity’s portfolio companies.
