Due diligence services

Due diligence is an essential prerequisite for industrial partnering.


Adour International helps companies with industrial partnering in countries where local content legislation applies. Our niche expertise is Nigerian local content and due diligence work in the energy industry.


We help international and local companies identify their most appropriate partner companies which will enable them to meet technical specifications and local content requirements on work they can bid for together through an industrial partnership. We perform the required analysis and in-depth financial, operational and commercial due diligence on companies seeking partners and on shortlisted companies identified as potential partners for them.


We take into account tangible elements such as manufacturing capabilities, commercial positioning and financial resources as well as less tangible elements such as business strategy, corporate culture, etc. We then quantify and qualify the suitability of those companies in light of the specific partnership arrangement they could form together. Clients are then able to select with confidence the right company to partner with – the one that provides them with the required competitive advantage – amongst a number of shortlisted potential partners.


Our clients include E&P operators, equipment manufacturers, service companies, EPCs and financiers. Our web site provides additional information on how we serve different categories of companies with the industrial partnering process.


Adour International supports customers from offices in Biarritz (France), Lagos (Nigeria) and Nairobi (Kenya).
