Energy providers often wish to exit from a business venture due to strategic or operational reasons. The underlying assets associated with these ventures, whether as a going concern legal entity or as physical fixed assets, will often have value and be attractive to other entities. AIE can support clients strategically through the often complex asset disposal process whilst also ensuring value is maximized.
AIE’s technical expertise and solid reputation is backed by our world class engineering team which has been developed working with a broad range of National Oil Companies, Oil and Gas Majors and Regional Governments. AIE is recognised as a leading independent service provider with an established reputation by our clients, our contacts and throughout the wider industry. This gives confidence to any prospective buyer during the sales and acquisition process.
AIE’s core business is the independent evaluation of Oil and Gas assets and provision of integrity management services. An integral part of the business is due diligence assessment which is typically performed as part of a sale or transfer of ownership. AIE clearly understands the concerns potential buyers hold when purchasing used assets.
As well as world class engineering expertise and a wide network of Oil and Gas industry contacts, AIE has employees with extensive international commercial and legal experience in the sale of major Oil and Gas assets both in the Middle East and in South East Asia. AIE can assist in providing a valuation of assets for sale based on industry knowledge and current value of similar assets. We can also build economic models based on discounted future cash flows under various scenarios to provide net present value information, or to calculate a purchase price for a specific internal rate of return. This can be used in conjunction with knowledge of general market and prospective purchaser project Internal Rate of Return (IRR) requirements and prospective purchaser weighted average cost of capital data to assist in calculating a realistic value for any sale.
