Report summary

Murphy has woken from its exploration hibernation in dramatic fashion. With recent entries into deepwater Mexico and Brazil, coupled with a long-awaited foray into the Permian, we are optimistic on the potential of the new-look portfolio. The company's exploration outlook is arguably the strongest it has ever been. Yet while the opportunities gleam with potential, they are not without risk.The challenge ahead will be to convert high-impact exploration prospects into commercial success.
