Why invest

Hunting generates value through the manufacture of products, provision of related services and supply of rental equipment to the upstream energy sector enabling the extraction of oil and gas.

Investment case

Reliably produced energy is a corner stone of the modern world and Hunting is a key participant in this complex and diverse sector.

While the oil and gas industry is a highly cyclical industry, it touches every part of our lives from the clothes we wear to how we get to work. It is a sector that has a robust long term outlook, as it supports economic stability and growth across the world.

To deliver oil and gas responsibly, highly engineered equipment and robust services are needed. From a complex, onshore shale production well, to a deep-water, offshore exploration well, Hunting’s equipment is used to resolve many challenges within many different geologies to ensure the safe delivery of oil and gas to the end user.

Our technology offering ensures we maintain a leading market share in our key, chosen markets and often we protect this know-how through intellectual property.

Key stats

Our products are also applied to every part of the lifecycle of a wellbore, from the exploration phase and initial well construction, to completion and production, maintenance and well intervention and finally plug and abandonment, our portfolio supports all our customer needs.

Hunting’s facility footprint extends across 11 countries and four continents, with 29 manufacturing facilities and 14 distribution centres located in strategically important places, close to where our clients are developing new oil and gas resources.

Our business model is highly resilient, given the cyclical nature of the industry. All of our facilities have been configured to be cash positive on a one-shift manufacturing pattern, which allows the Group to navigate market shifts as the pricing of oil and gas moves.
