Petroleum fiscal systems: 5 things to look for in 2020

Report summary

The global upstream investment environment is in a state of flux. Investors are under pressure to simultaneously prefer low carbon opportunities and create value. The average government share of the value of upstream assets is two thirds. As a result, fiscal and regulatory policies will have a very significant influence on investors’ ability to meet these objectives. And where they choose to allocate capital. Overall, we expect terms for new investment to become more favourable, especially in mature areas. But as long as the oil price remains stable (US$55-65/bbl), we expect limited disruptions in terms applicable to the producing assets. Read the insight to find out about our top five things to look out for in 2020.
