Mr. Lala brings more than 8 years of analytical work experience
and is focused on upstream strategies for National Oil Companies
(NOC) and International Oil Companies (IOC) in the geographic arc
spanning the Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Mr. Lala
transitioned from a successful early career in upstream M&A
transaction analysis to the less quantitative and more nuanced
world of strategy and performance analysis for NOCs and IOCs. In
his capacity with the Upstream Companies research program, he not
only analyses the upstream resources, activities, planning,
partnering, and forward portfolios of the companies he covers, but
also the unique government drivers and objectives that shape the
strategies of these upstream players.
An alumnus of the prestigious School of International Studies at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi, Mr. Lala completed his MA in International Relations and an MPhil in Energy politics from the Centre for European Studies at JNU. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. from the university around the subject of energy politics.
