Report summary

In late 2015, OMV announced a new strategic direction. It will grow production by gaining access to low-cost discovered resource opportunities. This was a marked departure from the previous strategy of building a material production hub in the North Sea and diversifying away from high above-ground risk regions. OMV will also cut exploration spend over the next two years. Exploration spend in 2016 was US$330 million and will further reduce in 2017.
