Report summary

At the end of a gloomy 2015 our predictions for what to look for in Asia Pacific in 2016 centred around four key themes of exploration development the corporate landscape and fiscal reform. Overall we hit the mark on most but the magnitude of the slowdown exceeded expectations with M&A activity and fiscal reform slower to progress than anticipated. Nearly 250 000 boe/d of production was lost as companies cut their cloth as per their means scaling back E&A spend deferring Final Investment Decisions (FID) reducing corporate debt and pruning portfolios. Looking back at 2016 we outline where we got it right what we missed and some of the surprises we saw in Asia Pacific's upstream sector.
