Pre-entry Reconnaissance

In the aftermath of the 2011 revolution, a US defence equipment manufacturer looked to explore the possibility of extending its interests in Libya. An LPD Consultant was deployed first to Benghazi, then to Tripoli, and rapidly established Forward Operating Bases and local networks from which the company’s executives could establish liaison with senior NTC officials and business leaders to develop commercial opportunities. The company was able to establish a firm footprint ahead of its competitors during a time of rapid and fast-moving change.


During the ‘Arab Spring’ many organisations struggled to implement whatever crisis plans they had in place, as many relied on service providers whose resources were double- or even triple-booked. Learning from these difficulties, a major technology firm identified a need to establish dedicated retainer contracts with key support providers. A full investigation of all suitable providers was carried out, including physical verification that client-dedicated resources existed and were fit for purpose.


Following the Libyan Revolution a large O&G Services organisation was keen to return to normal operations in the country, but faced significant challenges from battle-damaged infrastructure and a radically changed security environment. A Pathfinder deployment enabled the company to identify key points in need of urgent remedy, and to tailor their re-entry strategy accordingly.
