IPD's Key Stakeholders Map provides insight into the actors and institutions that shape, influence, and determine both industry policy and day-to-day operations. This mapping tool, focused on above the ground risks, is delivered in a dynamic format and is highly versatile. It can focus on the macro or drill down into a regional or industrial sector focus. The service includes a workshop to address the subtleties that are essential to effective institutional relations strategies.
The Competitive Analysis service helps companies assess how they rank vis-à-vis their competitors through a systematic industry comparison.
This service allows clients to discreetly understand how they are perceived by host countries, competitors and potential partners. IPD evaluates NOCs, IOC’s and service companies based on a broad range of business development, government relations, contractual, operational and technical issues.
IPD’s studies cover a range of economic, commercial, regulatory and technical categories. Sector and specific issue studies are available, as are granular studies on host country bid rounds.

IPD provides insight and granular detail on farm-ins, farm-outs, M&A opportunities and other investment prospects. Local experts, coupled with a keen understanding of international business strategies, afford IPD a unique advantage in this arena. Due diligence efforts are tailored to each client’s particular needs and can include all aspects related to management, operational and financial performance, company and individual reputation, etc. (excluding technical and legal areas). Verification and validation of information locally, together with the implementation of industry-standard risk matrices, help clients make better decisions.
Investment in any emerging market requires a thorough analysis and understanding of potential risks. IPD’s Country Risk Reports focus on the elements that can potentially impact long-term investments in the oil, natural gas and power sectors. They provide unique insight into domestic politics, market dynamics, the legal and regulatory framework, barriers to entry, and key economic and financial analysis.
With every executive’s constraints on time, IPD’s on-site workshops bring managers and other decision makers together to disseminate both insight and perspective on key issues of interest and concern. The value of a fluid dialogue and healthy debate can surface issues and details that are frequently missed in a written report. Half, full-, and multi-day workshops address topics ranging from the macro to specific opportunities, and assessments of both the political and economic environment.
