OUR STORY AND OUR EXECUTIVE TEAM

Thousands of energy executives around the world use Horizon to help better understand the political events and decision-makers that shape the environment for global oil and gas investment.

Horizon started out in 2003 with a narrow focus on oil and gas in Russia. Our idea was to go deeper into the key issues that affected energy investors and explain the way things actually work. We looked at the fundamental questions that we continue to address today: who are the real decision-makers for oil and gas? What do they want from IOCs? What do the political elites who control the sector think of specific foreign firms? And how can an IOC build a strategy that will succeed within a politically driven environment?

Over the last 13 years, we’ve expanded our coverage to over 30 countries around the world, from Iraq and Indonesia to Mexico and Mozambique. We've become trusted advisors to the world's largest energy companies, as well as financial institutions and companies in the mining, logistics, shipping and petrochemicals sectors.

We’ve applied the same thinking throughout all of our products and all of the countries we cover: In order to capture a new project or operate successfully, it’s critical to understand who’s in charge of the rules of the game and recognize what these people want. We advise our clients on how they can capitalize on this understanding and knowledge to be successful in their global ventures.
