Upstream review of 2013 - Southern Asia

Report summary

2013 was a more encouraging year for Southern Asia's upstream sector. Over 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent resources were discovered, which was twice as much as 2012 and the highest in the past six years. In addition, investments totalling nearly US$10 billion were approved in India alone. The Indian government chose a pragmatic path to re-invigorate the upstream sector but the unpredictability and slow pace of decision-making is hardly reassuring for investors.
