Capital projects & infrastructure
Risk, complexity and high costs are features of major capital projects. All too often projects are affected by cost and time overruns, or fail to meet business case objectives. These threaten the implementation of business strategy, divert management focus and may lead to re-financing or, in the worst case, insolvency. Our team of industry specialists have extensive experience of assisting clients in the review, understanding and improvement of capital project performance in a broad range of industry sectors.
Commodity & energy trading
We have a global network of over 200 CTRM specialists who can bring insights and good practices to your CTRM challenges.

Our CTRM specialists have access to the extensive breadth of additional PwC services where these may be required. Our team works particularly closely with our Banking and Capital Markets colleagues as their insights are often valuable to our corporate clients.
Finance advisory services
PwC’s Finance Advisory services supports our clients with structuring their finance functions such that they drive real, demonstrable value for the business in a controlled and efficient manner. We have a global community of experienced Finance professionals who provide a wide range of Finance operational, risk and functional advisory services to our oil and gas clients.
Governance, risk & compliance
The regulatory and reporting landscape is particularly complex for oil and gas companies. Not only do they have to conduct operations in a variety of regulatory and tax regimes but they also have big upfront investment needs, which often go hand in hand with great uncertainty about long-term outcomes. The geopolitical, environmental, energy and natural resource supply and trading environment, combined with often complex stakeholder and business relationships, adds to the complexities oil and gas companies face. In addition, the advent of International Financial Reporting Standards and section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act for US registrants has added to the challenges. All of this demands careful judgement around corporate governance, internal controls and external reporting.
