Crystol Energy advises governments, international and national investors, service companies and all relevant stakeholders in the energy sector. We understand this is a long-term business that encompasses diverse players, and the right balance of expertise and experience is required to successfully align their needs.
We regularly advise governments on how best to work with private investors of every size, and equally we help companies to work well with host governments.
With governments, we assist in the design of energy policies that will help to develop and maximise domestic energy resources. We also help them to manage the resulting wealth to gain long lasting economic benefits. To investors, we offer detailed assessment of the local investment climate and expertise for developing the right strategy. Using our depth of regional knowledge, we help to support communications with local authorities at every level.
