Oil & Gas and Petrochemical Industry Valuation Services

American Appraisal offers unrivaled expertise across all sectors around the world.

Changing tax laws, fluctuating prices of hydrocarbons, increased environmental regulations, as well as the continual restructuring of the oil & gas and petrochemical industries, are dynamics causing companies to constantly reinvent themselves. 

While the upstream sector remains relatively profitable, the downstream sector is suffering due to constantly changing raw material prices.  Some major companies are merging downstream operations through joint ventures or spinning off unprofitable operations in order to focus on business units that show growth potential. 

More than ever, risk and value management are paramount.

American Appraisal is ready for you.  Our full-time, dedicated Consultants possess deep industry expertise.  We have built business cases, addressed regulatory issues, immersed ourselves in technical logistics and gained a full appreciation for the metrics that drive your industries.
