Oil Search corporate report

Oil Search corporate report

Report summary

The start-up of PNG LNG in 2014 leaves Oil Search better-placed than many of its peers to weather a near-term low oil price environment. The company has low sustaining capital spend in 2016 and 2017, while PNG LNG delivers robust cash flow as well as strong production growth. But Oil Search's growth plans will depend on an oil price recovery. The focus remains firmly on Papua New Guinea, where its two proposed LNG developments demonstrate attractive economics. However, the capital commitments required to develop two large projects in a similar timeframe could see the company financially stretched. The longer-term picture remains bright, however, as Oil Search's production could double by the mid-2020s
