Report summary

Exploration spending will be cut by at least 30%, as discretionary E&A drilling is deferred or dropped. Most explorers will focus on lower-risk heartland basins. Companies will try to spend nothing now whilst retaining acreage where they can. Farm-in opportunities will abound, but selectivity is key. Licensing authorities will be under pressure to improve the attractiveness of terms on offer or to defer upcoming rounds.
