Risk in Context
Political violence has risen up the list of key concerns for energy companies; the likelihood of being affected is high within the sector.
As the geopolitical landscape becomes increasingly uncertain, multinational organisations and financial institutions have elevated their awareness of the inherent challenges faced when conducting business in areas of concern. Seemingly tranquil countries and regions can erupt quickly, and the nature of events is increasingly unpredictable. The risk of business interests being concentrated in just one, or a few, regions is an issue among companies that operate in emerging risk areas.
