Report summary

Production in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico (GoM) is expected to increase 48% from the 2013 level and reach a new peak of 1.9 mmboe/d in 2016. The growth will be driven by the expansion of older fields and new developments. However, our production forecast does not come without risks including geological, technological and operational challenges. Technology will have to take the spotlight, especially if the long-term oil prices remain below the US$75/bbl mark.
