Global Exploration: what to look for in 2016

Global Exploration: what to look for in 2016

Report summary

The exploration industry in 2016 will be in survival mode. We expect spend to be slashed to less than half of its 2014 peak. Our fear is these sharp cuts will cause lasting problems for the exploration industry, including reduced service sector capacity and loss of experienced talent.
