Environmental Analysis

  • Political Leadership changes in countries such as China, Indonesia, Thailand etc. has brought about changes of leadership in National Oil companies (NOC) of the Far East. This has brought about structural changes in the companies along with procedural change.
  • Oil prices have seen dramatic volatility in the last 9 months and is anticipated to continue in the foreseeable future.
  • Institutional Buyers or NOC’s do want to deal with intermediaries or brokers rather directly with the Sellers or Sellers Mandate. They are tired of dealing with thousands of offers made by brokers with products or without products.
  • Low prices of Petroleum Products in the market is prompting NOC’s and Institutional Buyers to rush to buy petroleum products while the prices remain low. Countries like China and India is building large quantities of Strategic Reserve for Energy Security.
  • US / EU sanctions on Russian Business resulting in restriction on banking instruments and international trade
