M&A Technical Assessments

Why Technical Assessments for M&A?

Knowing where to engage and what to avoid in mergers & acquisitions (M&A) directly translates into increased rates of return (ROR) on investment. Canadian Discovery Ltd. (CDL)’s geological, production and economic technical assessments help identify and assess opportunities for your investment portfolio. These assessments reduce risk and evaluate upside of potential acquisitions.

CDL has spent 30 years building an unrivalled understanding of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin from broad regional picture to in-depth analysis. Our extensive in-house libraries and datasets enable us to quickly and cost-effectively validate geological context, benchmark results and assess best practices. Through ongoing research and development efforts, CDL staff are continuously in tune with current E&P activity and trends. As a result, CDL is uniquely positioned to deliver results.

On a $100 million investment or acquisition, the cost of a CDL technical assessment (less than 0.05%) has the potential to increase your ROR by 5% or more.
