Some PII proficiencies but to which it is by no means limited to:
Presentations For Funding By Oil & Gas Companies:
PII knows what questions to ask and what to look for in order to mitigate funding risk for its clients. PII is uniquely well versed on both sides of the table, that of representing those from whom funding is being sought and that of representing oil & gas companies seeking funding and can therefore offer specialized insights, analysis and guidance with deep benefits.
Oil & Gas Company Office & Site Visits:
PII can accompany and/or represent clients during in-depth discussions at oil & gas companies offices to review and analyze technical, operational, managerial and financial data with their leadership and technical teams and also when site visits to their assets are undertaken to assess field operations, equipment and materials.
PII has extensive global experience conducting independent, unbiased, detailed due diligence/evaluations of upstream oil & gas assets (blocks, concessions, fields etc) belonging to host countries and oil & gas companies for clients.
Negotiations, Liaison, Business Development:
PII has vast experience in negotiations pertaining to oil & gas assets, oilfield services, equipment and related contracts throughout the world. Internationally, skills extend to business development and ongoing liaison between foreign IOCs and senior government representatives of host countries including Heads of State, Ministers, Deputy Ministers, senior ministry staff and leadership at NOCs and Regulatory Bodies.

Wherever client considerations for longer term active involvement is undertaken, PII can provide highly experienced teams to operate and manage oil & gas assets, grow reserves, increase production, improve efficiencies and generate profitable results in a timely, economic and cost effective fashion that achieve planned strategies which often include an exit component.
Acquisitions & Divestitures:
Aside from due diligence/evaluation in respect of A&D PII offers additional support in other associated aspects. Internationally, regulatory and other host country approval(s) are often subject to embedded requirements where licenses for exploration and production are concerned that clients considering funding such operations must be well aware and understand the implications of. These are not always straight forward exposures and are accompanied by the potential to change with little or no warning. PII has a great deal of experience in these capacities and can provide clarity and guidance to capital providers.
How does PII serve an expansive global financial services industry where clients can literally be all over the planet?
The world is still big in some respects and we've been to much of it. So in today's world, handling the needs of clients based around the world is supported by communication technology.
Telephone and video conferencing can manage distance and PII's global clientele generally utilize these communication medians very effectively. It's fairly common nowadays to advise a client in London about their position in an oil & gas investment that may comprise an onshore field development in Kazakhstan and an LNG project in Australia for example.
Conference calling widens the possibilities even further and can directly involve client representatives from any or all of their corporate offices. PII has had as many as 40 people in 14 different countries from the same investment house on the same call.
At times however, consultation efforts are still best served with face to face meetings, and for this reason PII is no stranger to the world.

They tap into expertise forged from a wealth of experience and knowledge. PII knows oil & gas extremely well and understands clients activities in it. Many years of experience affords a skill set that rapidly address needs and maximize time and effort.
