Our clients represents the entire range of E&P companies on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Services related to business development are mainly strategy for growth, either organic through license rounds or inorganic through mergers and acquisitions.
Melberg Partners have a very good insight into assets and players on the NCS and are uniquely placed to assist clients in their work to establish and execute a strategy for growth in Norway. We have the knowledge and network needed to design a strategy that aligns to corporate objectives.
We also have experience from successfully leading pre-qualification applications for new companies entering the NCS.
Few or no other advisor has the level of experience that Melberg Partners have when it comes to evaluating opportunities and completing transactions on the NCS. We have participated in more than 350 evaluations and have completed more than 50 transactions representing a value of some 15 billion USD on behalf of our clients.
In licence rounds, whether they are Awards in Predefined Areas (APA - annual) or ordinary licencing rounds (bi-annually), we assist clients in evaluating the potential resources seen in prospects. This includes estimation of Minimum Economic Field Size (MEFS) and options for developing a potential discovery (standalone, tie-back options etc.). We also assist in the negotiation of Areas for Mutual Interest agreements (AMIs).
Several of our clients have been through a long period of significant growth. This combined with several of our employees having their background from the major E&P companies have given us valuable experience in portfolio optimisations. Companies that come from a long period of inorganic growth often need to adjust and optimise their portfolios to allow them to focus on core areas. Melberg Partners have experience from portfolio optimisation from growth companies and from major E&P companies.
Melberg Partners also provide services by representing partners in license committees such as Management, Technical, Commercial and Advisory Committee. In house proprietary modeling tools have been developed in order to provide better and more documented advice. Melberg Partners E&P Commercial Advice has a distinguished client list.
