Offshore projects sanctioned between 2010 and 2014 struggling to create value, Rystad says

first_imgRystad claimed that the reason why the projects sanctioned between 2010 and 2014 were struggling to create value related primarily to the cost structure.The key driver for the 2015 paradigm shift related to cost levels for the offshore industry. The main reasons for the cost reductions are lower unit prices within the industry – like rig rates, redesign, and simplification of new projects, a weaker local currency for some key offshore regions like the UK, Norway, and Brazil, as well as efficiency gains.Spotted a typo?

Rystad’s evaluation of offshore developments sanctioned since 2010 shows that international oil and gas E&P companies are struggling to make money from offshore investments made between 2010 and 2014 when oil prices were high.Illustration: Author: SP MacRystad said on Wednesday that the sanctioning activity was record-high during the strong investment cycle from 2010 to 2014 when energy companies reached final investment decisions on offshore oil fields collectively representing close to 40 billion boe of total resources.The Norwegian energy intelligence firm added that the amount of sanctioned volumes peaked at 13.2 million boe in 2011 at the height of $100-plus oil prices, before nose-diving to an all-time low of just 0.6 million boe sanctioned from offshore oil fields in 2016.It is worth noting that the trend of sanction volumes has ticked up over the last two years.During the evaluation, Rystad found that entire vintages of offshore field development projects would fail to offer a return on investment in today’s oil price environment.Offshore projects sanctioned between 2010 and 2012 have barely been able to generate any value for E&P companies, while projects sanctioned between 2013 and 2014 are expected to have no value creation.Namely, offshore projects sanctioned between 2010 and 2012 have barely been able to generate any value for E&P companies, while projects sanctioned between 2013 and 2014 are expected to have no value creation.As for upstream companies to come out those investment years without massive losses, the oil price will need to increase to around $70 per barrel. Rystad also claimed that the value creation was positive for sanctioning between 2015 and 2018, even when applying a future oil price of only $40 per barrel.Espen Erlingsen, head of upstream research at Rystad Energy, said: “Looking back at the offshore projects sanctioned between 2010 and 2014 with the knowledge we have today, we see that the last offshore investment cycle is struggling to create value.“From 2010 through 2014, around 3,000 new oil fields were sanctioned, and we estimate that around 800 of them did not create value.“With the pivot in development costs from 2015 onwards, the projects sanctioned over the last four years are in a much better position. This illustrates how companies that invested during the down cycle have been able to create value even in a lower oil price environment.”last_img read more

NegOcc workers’ group honors COVID-19 frontliners on Labor Day

first_img“We salute them as we remember them not with sadness, but with a firm resolve to emulate the highest form of human sacrifice they had rendered as motivated by a sense of responsibility to prioritize the needs and welfare of others rather than their own,” Sancho added. Nurses at the Provincial Healting Center in E.B. Magalona, Negros Occidental cater the overseas Filipino workers who underwent a 14-day mandatory quarantine for coronavirus disease 2019 upon their arrival on April 14. BACOLOD City – The General Alliance of Workers Associations (GAWA) in this province paid tribute to the frontliners who continuously fight the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) during the International Labor Day.GAWA secretary-general Wennie Sancho said that frontliners – regarded as heroes and martyrs – should never be forgotten. According to GAWA, the frontline health workers remained true to their calling despite receiving discrimination, having physical and emotional stress and their vulnerability to the virus. “Remember them with a deeper and richer meaning – that a health crisis can be overcome by human love, compassion and above all, by our solidarity against COVID-19 as workers from various sectors,” he added.GAWA honored the modern-day heroes such as doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, police, military personnel, and all those who have made sacrifices.Sancho cited their courage and fortitude, especially of the frontline health care workers, in fighting the dreaded virus.“They offered their services and even their lives without counting the cost so that others may live. They symbolize human love and altruism. Some of them died answering a noble cause above and beyond their call of duty as frontline workers,” he said. As of April 29, data from the Department of Health showed that t 1,552 Filipino health care workers have been infected with COVID-19. A total of 32, including 24 doctors and seven nurses have died, while 232 have recovered. Data from the Philippine National Police, on the other hand, showed that 96 of its personnel have also been infected with the virus. Three of them died and 13 have recovered.(With a report from PIA/PN)last_img read more
