Operator Series: LatAm Oil&Gas capex update

By -

Oil companies have slashed global E&P spend for 2015-20 by US$1tn since crude prices began their precipitous fall in mid-2014, Wood Mackenzie showed in June. "Virtually every oil producing country has seen some form of capex cuts," the firm's principal analyst Malcolm Dickson said. "The deepest are in the US lower 48, where forecast capital investment has halved in 2016-17, falling by US$125bn. This is mainly down to a big drop-off in drilling, with the onshore rig count dropping by 53% from 2015 to 2016." Latin America is no exception to the global trend. Foreign direct investment in Latin America and the Caribbean fell 9.1% in 2015 to US$179bn, the lowest level since 2010. But in recent weeks, along with news that the oil price is inching above US$50 per barrel, Latin America has produced some positive signs. This report consolidates the latest oil and gas capex news from majors operating in the region.
