MENA upstream: what to look for in 2016

MENA upstream: what to look for in 2016

Report summary

We highlight the key events to watch in the Middle East and North Africa in 2016, including: sanctions being lifted on Iran, Saudi Arabia maintaining its oil production, as well as progress on a number of major projects across the region.

As ever geopolitics will play a key role in the region, particularly given the low oil price environment. Exploration will remain largely suppressed, except in the East Mediterranean which is seeing renewed interest following last year's Zohr discovery.
