US Gulf of Mexico: 5 things to look for in 2020

Report summary

New project sanctions and accelerating M&A are set to continue in 2020 for the US Gulf of Mexico. We see another year of peak production and a staggering amount of new platform FIDs. Sanctioning of Anchor sets the stage for the next wave of 20-ksi projects. We are now watching for go ahead decisions at North Platte and Shenandoah, as well as at Whale and Leon/Moccasin. But all is not positive. Political risk is raising its head while rig rates are expected to inflate. While we expect cost inflation to kick in, we don’t anticipate costs increasing to 2014 levels.
