Oil, Gas & Mining

Industries > Oil, Gas & Mining  > Overview 



We are an IFC team that adds value to clients in the oil, gas and mining industries through private sector financing and advisory services.

Our mission is to help developing countries and communities realize sustainable economic benefits from natural resources. Natural resource industries are important for many of the world's poorest countries: they are a key source of jobs, economic opportunities, investments, revenues to government, energy and other benefits for local economies.

We work with companies through two private sector investment teams:
oil & gas and mining. We also coordinate closely with the World Bank's policy team that works with governments on oil, gas and mining regulations and revenue use.

We have investment teams based in over 20 countries that draw on their global expertise in delivering advice and innovative financing solutions to clients around the world.
