Oil and Gas - Downstream

The downstream sector covers refining crude oil, distributing and retailing natural gas and crude products. These processes require significant capital expenditure on assets such as oil refineries, petrochemical plants, retail outlets, gas cylinders, and other storage and distribution facilities. Àrgentil has significant experience and expertise in providing advisory and capital raising services to clients in the downstream sector.

We provide downstream advisory on asset acquisition and divestiture, mergers, economic and fiscal regime, project viability and modelling transaction support, as well as all aspects of commercial negotiation.

Our understanding of high level and detailed interactions of the downstream oil & gas markets, access to financial markets and expertise developed from past and ongoing transactions differentiate us from generalist investment banks and advisory firms.

We provide the following services:

  • Commercial due diligence including assessment of current and potential market demand.
  • Management of the business case for a transaction and evaluating the impact of a transaction on clients’ long-term corporate/financial plan.
  • Leading clients’ capital raising efforts.
  • Project management services to ensure timely financial close.
  • Assisting clients with review of project assumptions and providing the client end-to-end support until financial close.
