Midstream & Downstream Oil & Chemicals

For over a decade and a half, AWR Lloyd has actively promoted the development of oil storage terminals and underground rock cavern storage projects and brownfield expansions in Southeast Asia outside Singapore to meet the growing demand for imports, refinery reserves and trading storage. In particular we have extensive experience in supporting terminal and storage clients in feasibility studies, capital-raising and transactions in Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and India.

AWR Lloyd also has experience in advising on the development of oil and gas trading and procurement businesses in Asia. For example we advised a Southeast Asian refining and distribution group on the development of a new oil trading business – and we have been advisor to the Singapore subsidiary of one of the world’s leading oil trading companies for many years supporting their physical and derivatives trading strategies in Southeast Asia. AWR Lloyd has also worked with Asian mining and power companies in relation to oil and gas procurement, logistics and hedging strategies in Indonesia and the Greater Mekong region.

In the oil refining, chemicals and marketing sectors AWR Lloyd has conducted numerous assignments for clients in India, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. For example, we have worked for a global oil and gas group in assessing potential acquisition and investment targets in the Indian oil refining and downstream sector. We supported a Middle Eastern client in the feasibility assessment of a greenfield refinery and 2 million barrel per day pipeline in Thailand. We have conducted feasibility study work for a Korean consortium in relation to a 300,000 bpd refinery project in Vietnam. In Thailand we have worked for most of the large refining companies including in-depth strategy consulting reviews, new business venture planning and IPO-related work.

To help clients further develop ventures and projects in the midstream and downstream oil and chemicals sector in Southeast Asia and South Asia, AWR Lloyd has incubated and spun-off an affiliate, Indochina Energy [link] to provide development and management services for its clients.
