Smarter transactions occur when the buyer adds value using their influence and expertise, not just their capital. Smarter transactions can lead to non-compliant bids for assets and preferred bidders. It’s currently the model used by private equity firms, but will this continue if oil prices rise and we return to a seller’s market?
This session introduces a London-based initiative to reduce risks for investors in M&A, reserves-based lending, and other financial arrangements, by tailoring the content of Resource Reports for investors.

Natural gas, combined with a growing use of renewable energy, continues to play a key role for operators and investors considering abundant supply in North America, growing opportunities for LNG, and its lower carbon quality and flexibility of use for electric power generation. Although gas markets have continued to drop with supply apparently meeting any demand scenario, low current storage levels, LNG export capacity, and gas for power substitution help put a floor on gas prices.
This session will discuss the major transformation in natural gas and its growing usage and monetisation in the long-term.
