The mining industry is one of the most internationally diverse industries in the financial markets. Finding a new resource can mean venturing into politically unstable emerging economies and into jurisdictions which are less readily accessible. From an investment perspective the industry is recognised as high risk, high reward.

Understanding the risks of working internationally in emerging economies and less stable regimes is crucial in ensuring that a business' risks are appropriately managed. This is where the right advisers will bring value to a business, its shareholders and investors. Understanding the sector and the volatility and being able to advise as a consequence. 

BDO Northern Ireland provide a broad range of services to companies, individuals and investors who are active in this dynamic industry. Using our industry knowledge and leveraging our experience in established and developing economies, we can offer our perspective and practical solutions on the issues that companies face and which are often unique to this industry. We work with companies who are in the early stages of their exploration programs through to companies who have multi-site producing operations and cover commodities from Gold to Iron Ore and everything in between.

Oil and Gas Services
As a key supplier to the oil and gas industry, support service providers are internationally diverse. Typically, the services industry will have complex corporate structures implemented to manage risk, the cost of tax, client contracting requirements and create worldwide synergies and efficiencies.

As worldwide economies have been impacted by the decline in the oil price over the last twelve months along with the ongoing uncertainty over the future trends in prices, the oil and gas services industry has had to adjust to a new market environment. In a market where prices have hardened and opportunities have diminished, companies need to know that they have the right advisers in place to provide the support they need.

Support service providers form an important part of our international industry client base. We work alongside many oilfield service companies who supply technology, information solutions, drilling and evaluation services and project management professionals to oil and gas businesses.

The international nature of the oil and gas services industry allows us to demonstrate the strength of BDO International. Our international reach allows us to provide professional services to support service companies in a way which mirrors the company's own structure and operations.
