Report summary

The precipitous drop in oil prices over the second half of the year overshadowed production growing for the first time since 2009. Exploration remained robust with 12 announced discoveries totalling over 1.1 bnboe with a 48% success rate. Capital investment was dominated by Majors but Independents like Anadarko and Hess also invested heavily. M&A was subdued, decommissioning picked up pace, and bidding at the lease sales was measured.
