Houston, TX (April 27, 2016) – Experts from Stratas Advisors will host live demonstrations of the company’s new Global Offshore Projects Service at the Offshore Technology Conference on May 2-5, 2016. Attendees can stop by booth #3217 at Houston's NRG Center. Seats can be reserved for the demonstrations by registering online.

The Global Offshore Projects Service provides worldwide coverage of 250+ offshore projects, with a focus on recent and future developments. The web-based application includes multiple economic measures throughout the project lifecycle, analysis of publicly announced E&P projects, and detailed fiscal models by country. The transparent modeling shows calculations, adjusts the assumptions as desired, and analyzes the results.

The amount of investment required for global offshore projects makes for high risks. Stratas Advisors’ valuable resource enables industry professionals to make more informed business decisions.
