Report summary

Premier's growth strategy has been much more M&A led than many of its peers but it shifted its exploration focus in the second half of the decade of our study period by adding higher impact opportunities. The company extended its portfolio outside of it's legacy Southeast Asia position to gain a better balance of mature and emerging opportunities. It has added acreage across its portfolio through both M&A and licensing rounds; in South America Falklands/Malvinas (2012) Brazil (2013) and Mexico (2015) before building on its core legacy position in the UK North Sea (2016).This provides a combination of near field and higher impact opportunities where capital discipline will be required to test only the best prospects in this low oil price environment.
