UK oil and gas production: review of 2015 and outlook

UK oil and gas production: review of 2015 and outlook

Report summary

Production from the UK continental shelf (UKCS) increased in 2015 by more than 14%, the first significant production increase since 1999. However, the positive story is mitigated somewhat by the fact that the overall figures were only 76% of our 2011 view for 2015 production. This difference was caused primarily by delays to new projects and fields being shut-in for redevelopment.
