Financing Upstream Oil Operations

Financing Upstream Oil Operations

The oil and gas industry is a diverse industry that underpins many national economies. In this video, Dan focuses on the different sources of financing that are available for businesses within the upstream sector.
Overview

The Upstream sector involves developing fields in pursuit of commercially viable hydrocarbons. To achieve this, E&P companies are financed by stakeholders such as major IOCs who aim to pay out dividends to their shareholders. Further to this, investors, prior to financing, look for projections to determine viability, and this is enabled through reserve reports.

Key learning objectives:

  • Explain the stages of the upstream sector

  • Identify the different stakeholders involved and the risks they take

  • Discuss the different sources of financing and the impact of reserve reports when making an investment decision
