Enhancing return on invested capital: Three actions for oil and gas companies

How to enhance return on invested capital in the oil and gas industry amid volatile oil prices.


Now, more the ever, enhancing return on invested capital (RoIC) is crucial for oil and gas companies around the globe. Focusing on growing top or bottom-line earnings is proving to be unsustainable—an integrated approach to RoIC across the asset portfolio is essential to deliver significant RoIC uplift.

In approaching return on invested capital (RoIC) enhancement strategies, oil and gas players need to take an integrated approach across their respective portfolio across three key pillars:

  1. Achieve commercial optimization through asset-backed trading.

  2. Optimize balance sheet through alternative capital structures.

  3. Gain portfolio expansion through sophisticated investment and M&A deal execution.

Achieve commercial optimization through asset-backed trading. A trading-centric operating model optimizing long and short positions in an integrated portfolio can significantly enhance trading net operating profit after taxes (NOPAT).

Optimize balance sheet through alternative capital structures. Alternative commercial arrangements and capital structures, including off-balance sheet greenfield investments can provide an effective means to secure asset capacity without having to commit full capital funding.

Portfolio expansion through sophisticated investment and M&A deal execution. With future NOPAT set to rely heavily on future capital investments and M&A, enhancing transactions execution is key—oil and gas players will need to leverage advanced financial and risk analytics to improve their risk-adjusted returns.
