The traditional joint operating model of the sector broke down well before oil prices fell. An almost exclusive focus on exploration resulted in companies being
unable to attract partners willing to manage the risks of subsequent commercialisation.
OEP is focused on Stalled Oil & Gas PlaysTM. The majority of these assets have stalled in the pre-development phase where investment
activity lacks progress due to operators having too high equity interest, partners lack alignment, are unable or unwilling to meet capital requirements.
Target assets are predominantly gas, pre-development in nature
and based either onshore or in shallow water, close to existing markets and infrastructure.
We provide the catalyst to unlock these opportunities. Post-investment in the fields, OEP will increase the value of investments by applying commercial,
financial and technical skills and expertise gained over the past 25 years.
