••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Headquarter Location:
Oil Search Ltd is engaged in the exploration, development and production of oil and gas fields. The Company operates in Papua New Guinea, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, Tunisia and Australia.

Oil Search was founded in 1929 and operates all of Papua New Guinea's oilfields. The PNG government holds a 10% interest. Oil Search has successfully run PNG oilfields since assuming operatorship from ExxonMobil in 2003. However, the tyranny of distance saw the large and high-quality gas fields largely stranded until 2014. The PNG LNG project is the first step to monetise those vast gas resources, again under the direction of ExxonMobil. First-stage construction is complete, with potential for expansion from two trains to three.
