Executing a successful listing: Markets for Oil & Gas

Sustained high hydrocarbon prices have opened up opportunities for oil and gas development and fuelled a strong appetite for oil and gas stocks. Almost $200 billion has been raised by oil and gas companies in IPOs and secondary offerings in the five years to 2011, and the pipeline remains strong.

A clear strategy and a well developed equity story are the foundations that will support the success of your listing.
