Gas Development

Xodus helps clients worldwide to develop, operate and trade gas assets. We provide confidence in the strategic approach and in the economic viability of each field.

Operators and investors with interests in gas fields have demanding requirements to fulfil. Some are seeking to obtain reserve certification to satisfy regulatory or financial requirements, others are looking for creative solutions for stranded gas or require a Competent Person’s Report (CPR) or a Field Development Plan (FDP). Key to all activities associated with buying, selling and operating gas fields is a thorough understanding of the technical possibilities, market opportunities and financial constraints of each field.

Xodus’ professionals combine subsurface and engineering expertise with commercial awareness and regulatory knowledge to give clients complete support at any stage of the acquisition, operation or divestment cycle.
