Cairn Energy corporate report

Report summary

Cairn's strategic objective is to create and realise shareholder value through transformational exploration. Good progress has been made over the last 12 months; development projects are on schedule and material discoveries offshore Senegal have the potential to provide a step-change in value. The company's past successes will be hard to replicate and there are a range of risks but Cairn is now better-placed to outperform than it has been for some time.
