Report summary

Over 45 major project FIDs have now been deferred due to lower oil prices, creating a substantial hole in the industry investment pipeline. We estimate 20 billion boe of reserves has been pushed back from a diverse range of onshore, shallow-water and deepwater developments. Many of these projects have low IRRs and high breakevens, meaning significant work is required to make them attractive investments in a world of greater financial discipline.
