The persistent low oil price has resulted in Oil & Gas operators reducing their budgets, shifting their focus towards projects with near-term cash generation, whilst scaling back, slowing down or postponing longer term investment activities. Triple EEE Management Support B.V. can support their efforts, offering a series of value-adding services that can help improve the client’s bottom line. Portfolio Management support, described in this brochure, is one of those services.
Portfolio management is often defined as the organizational process of using the information uncovered by portfolio analysis to guide business decisions. As such, it links a client’s strategy to investment properties. For example, the decision makers can incorporate the information of an analysis on investment options and their associated trade-offs as a supplement to their knowledge and experience when making decisions. Best-in-class approach to portfolio management therefore embeds the following elements:
Consistency of reporting, forecasts and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) across business units, with outputs that allows quality decision making
Regular reviews to ensure that portfolio performance and objectives are aligned with strategy and flexible to changes in market conditions
Assessment of investment options on an unbiased, holistic basis, recognizing interdependent risks, impact and opportunity costs across business units
Aspire and achieve efficiency in portfolio composition, with sufficient optionality to weather storms
The low oil price business environment put companies on a quest for efficiency increases, performance gains and cost optimization to achieve acceptable rates of return. Commercials deals (e.g. asset sales) are part of the mix of mitigation actions and portfolio management forms a key component in the decision making process, both on the seller’s and the buyer’s side. The assessment of commercial options through integrated analysis, recognizing interdependent risks and opportunities, should guide and underpin all commercial decisions.
Triple EEE can support a client’s portfolio management efforts in many forms, which can range from provision of ad hoc Subject Matter Expert advice to a full-fledged review of a client’s portfolio and management process by an integrated team, with follow-up implementation support.
All assessments will start with analysis of the current portfolio and reporting models. Depending on the outcome, revisions can be proposed or a new model defined, as well associated templates to collect and process information. Identification of improvement opportunities, for example in the client’s portfolio management, decision making process, accountabilities and current portfolio inventory can also be included.
Typical list of deliverables includes:
Analysis of the current portfolio of a client
Evaluation of current risk management processes
Identification of current information streams and needs (data, sources, responsibilities, periodicity)
Definition of the client’s financial and technical KPIs and reporting model
Identification of key portfolio improvement opportunities, linked to the client’s corporate strategy
Analysis of the client’s technical and financial evaluation processes, assurance model, accountabilities and decision making, and suggest improvements
