Report summary

We estimate that a change in the future differential between LLS and Brent compared to the historical average will result in a US$15.5 billion decrease in value in deepwater GoM. As more US onshore crude is transported to the Gulf Coast, Wood Mackenzie expects the LLS-Brent differential to widen further. Despite this drop in value, we do not anticipate that any future projects will become uneconomic as a result of this change alone.
