ABS Group Provides Due Diligence Services for Major Gas System Project Financing
Provide the National Bank of Greece with Due Diligence services for the Alexandroupolis Independent Natural Gas System Project
The National Bank of Greece is one of the central banks in Greece, with a long-established history dating back to 1841. As a leading financial institution, the bank has a significant national presence and has expanded its network to neighboring countries. In 2020, the bank was appointed as the Mandated Lead Arranger for financing the Alexandroupolis Independent Natural Gas System Project. As the major financing party, the bank needed to clearly understand the project’s development from a technical point of view in order to offer its financing services efficiently.
ABS Group provided the National Bank of Greece with comprehensive technical advisory services to protect the bank's interests throughout the project's lifecycle.
We closely monitored the project’s progress through regular contact with the management team, identified potential technical risks and delays and provided prompt assistance and technical expertise to the bank whenever required. By providing a series of progress, summary and due diligence reports at agreed intervals, we kept our clients current on the project's status and progress.
Finally, ABS Group assisted the bank in their exchanges with third parties regarding technical issues throughout the project.
