North America Division

D&M’s North America Division is responsible for studies and evaluations both on and offshore of the lower 48 states, Alaska, and Canada.

The North America Division reviews thousands of petroleum properties annually. The majority of these projects pertain to reserves and resources evaluations for oil and gas assets. Given the turbulence in the oil and gas industry, the North America Division is heavily engaged in acquisition assistance, divestiture assistance, and fair market value studies.

The North America Division has completed hundreds of studies on unconventional resources across the region. For example, D&M petroleum engineers and geoscientists have evaluated almost half of the unconventional wells that have been drilled within the Eagle Ford Shale play in recent years. The firm has developed proprietary tools that support enhanced evaluation of unconventional assets, specifically well performance.

The client base for the North America Division consists of domestic exploration and production companies as well as international players that have invested in North American oil and gas operations. The firm also serves private equity firms, lenders, and midstream operations companies.

In support of merger and acquisition efforts, experts within the North America Division frequently help sellers evaluate offers. When D&M is supporting buyers, representatives will attend data rooms and help buyers evaluate the sellers’ data and development plans. D&M’s overall range of support for clients encompasses technical and economic analyses and even extends to making presentations to boards and other stakeholders on behalf of clients. D&M experts help both buyers and sellers better understand the cost of participation in sales transactions and their potential return on investment. Team members average 20 years of experience in the industry, providing clients with professional opinions that are backed by a solid understanding of the market.
