The Energy & Resources group specializes in the strategic and tactical real estate requirements of companies in the oil, natural gas, electric and alternative energy sectors. Increasing performance pressure from customers, regulators, and shareholders and the enormous capital investments required by new and emerging technologies make real estate optimization a necessity for energy companies.
The aim of our group is to help clients navigate the complex challenges presented by real estate. We can either streamline entire media property portfolios for maximum flexibility and efficiency, or satisfy a specific property requirement as part of a one-off transaction. In all cases we seek to align business objectives with real estate solutions, even though this sector presents challenges.
Energy & Resources Real Estate Challenges
- Oil prices in December 2011 were higher than four years ago. 2012 is looking like a suppressed year with values below the 2007 landmark and lower than 2011 levels
- Supermajor performance, emerging markets players, and the service sector are now showing strong performance, demonstrating increased market capitalization gains among all returning companies
- The expanding oil and gas potential of the North American onshore, which has created intense demand for infrastructure throughout the region, is another challenge
- Most Russian companies outperformed the emerging markets group
