Jamaica upstream fiscal summary

Report summary

The upstream fiscal system currently employed for Jamaica is officially termed a PSA (Production Sharing Agreement) combining tax, royalty and production sharing elements.  For the purposes of this analysis, due to the similarities, we refer to PSA's as PSC's.  The barrel = lifetime revenue / field reserves. Profit = revenue – costs from barrel charts.  For further details see New Investment: Methodology. Source: Wood Mackenzie
