20 wildcats to watch in 2018

Report summary

Prospect diversity is narrowing as many explorers target similar plays across the globe. Most volumes discovered in recent years have come from new plays and frontier basin successes. Companies will continue to explore in these recently proven plays and look to open new ones. Our choice of wells reflects this, ranging across potential basin openers, new plays in already successful basins and large targets in recent exploration hotspots. Where are the most important wells this year? Who will be drilling them?
