Vol 5, PW 15 (12 Sep 01) News in Brief

The oil ministry is looking for a new consultant to organise overseas roadshows for the next licensing round.

Internal papers seen by this report indicate ministry unhappiness at the performance of IHS Energy of the UK, which organised NELP-II. "The performance of IHS, especially in organising the roadshows in the United States require critical review," reads an internal note.

An oil ministry official adds: "We weredisappointed with their performance. They told us the Singapore roadshow would happen the same day as an industry conference but when we landed we found out that our roadshow was a day ahead and as a result we had poor attendance."
