Dubai Consulting UAE Oil and Gas

Contax Partners is a global consulting firm with a strong focus on the Middle East and African energy markets.Through our Business Advisory division, Contax Partners specializes in providing world-class strategic and commercial solutions across the energy value chain. We strive to provide practical solutions that yield lasting and profitable results.

What makes the consulting practice at Contax Partners unique is the vast knowledge-base and expertise our teams have developed over the last three decades. A rich wealth of in-house market intelligence is supplanted by the strong relationships that we have cultivated over time. We empower our clients to fully understand, adapt and thrive in an increasingly crowded and competitive energy market.

Setting the right strategy and making informed decisions early remains critical for project owners, contractors and vendors alike. This is why we closely align our clients' ambitions with our own incentives, ensuring that we pressure ourselves to deliver quality that surpasses expectations. Be it a upstream oil & gas contracting strategy in Saudi Arabia, a petrochemical due diligence process in Qatar, field execution strategies in Iraq or insights from the virgin liquefied natural gas sector of Mozambique, Contax Partners continues to evolve with the ever-changing global energy landscape. Our evolution from being grounded in research into a dedicated fact-based consulting firm is what has allowed us to continually deliver success stories for our clients.
