Report summary

In a year of mixed fortunes, Sub-Saharan Africa once again proved its value; it accounted for 75% of global commercial discoveries and 33% of global liquids by volume. Explorers Cairn Energy, Cobalt and Eni had very good years. Harsh fiscal terms and political uncertainty dampened appetite for new acreage while the oil price crash, which began to bite late in the year, will continue to have an impact on projects yet to take FID.
