Petroleum fiscal systems: 2022 in review

Report summary

2022 was undoubtedly the year of the windfall. Huge spikes in oil, gas and power prices – especially in Europe – sent fiscal policymakers into a spin. We summarise these developments and other global fiscal events: • Fiscal disruption – which countries changed terms that impact the value of existing assets? • Fiscal evolution – which countries changed terms for new licence opportunities? • Energy transition fiscal developments – which countries introduced upstream petroleum fiscal terms designed to impact investment in decarbonisation and CCUS projects
