Breakeven costs are assigned to every element of our global liquids supply view allowing a comprehensive view of the global cost of supply. Key analysis includes: 1) How the cost of supply will change through to 2035. 2) The importance future drilling in US Lower 48 and pre-FID projects. 3) Where each sub-play and pre-FID conventional project sits on the cost curve in ten years time. 4) How have offshore breakevens changed since before the price crash.
