Report summary

Upstream licences in Cyprus are awarded through licensing rounds under production sharing contract terms (PSCs). The model used in this analysis are based on 2016 model exploration and production sharing contract terms. Signature bonus, production bonus, cost recovery ceiling and contractor profit share are all biddable parameters. Profit sharing rates are linked to project profitability. Income tax is paid by the state from its share of profits. The state does not have any equity participation within the PSC regime
