The Energy & Resources Sector 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 real estate solutions with business objectives and industry realities. Some of the real estate challenges specific to the energy and resources sector include:
- Oil prices in December 2011 were higher than four years ago but 2012 is looking like a suppressed year.
- 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 America has created intense demand for infrastructure throughout the region.
- Most Russian companies outperformed the emerging markets group.
