What we offer

We deliver extensive expertise and products supporting the management of petroleum resources.
Our main products and services include consulting, benchmarking and courses.


Our combined oil & gas industry experience and R&D activities give us unique knowledge on the opportunities and challenges that face countries rich in natural resources.

We share this knowledge through our consulting activity, the courses we offer, and our benchmarking application CPM Axess.


Through our online application CPM Axess we provide benchmarking services for countries with respect to three separate management indexes: political management, economic management and resource management.

We provide knowledge and help design policies and institutions that will generate opportunities, while preventing the threats, that arise from natural resource abundance.
