Caspian upstream: 5 things to look for in 2020

Report summary

As a new decade dawns, the Caspian upstream sector again has big plans. But will it deliver in 2020 after a mixed 2019? Our regional outlook covers five key themes to watch: 1. How will the launch of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline shape Azerbaijan’s gas export ambitions? 2. Why does BP have such high hopes for Azerbaijan exploration? 3. What more will Uzbekistan do to attract IOCs into upstream projects? 4. What new investments are on the horizon at the Majors’ Kazakh megaprojects? 5. Will NC KazMunaiGas, Kazakhstan’s NOC, achieve its IPO goal?
