CBT Spotlight: Middle East

CBT Spotlight: Middle East

Report summary

Despite the regions prevalence within the global upstream landscape, only 20 of the 61 companies covered within our Corporate Benchmarking Tool have commercial positions within the Middle East. Collectively we value these assets at US$122 billion, equating to less than 10% of upstream commercial value, investment, production and cash flow. Noble Energy has the highest exposure to the region within our coverage. Shell and ExxonMobil are the most exposed of the Majors with Statoil absent from the Middle East. The regional resource  base is dominated by LNG at 40% of regional upstream value (NPV10) and margins are supported by large mid-life legacy assets that are well past peak investment.
