Prior to joining IHS in mid-2012, Andrew Slaughter was Business Environment Manager for Shell’s Upstream Americas energy and petroleum business.

Full Description

Continued downward pressure on oil prices means ongoing capital expenditure cuts across the exploration and production (E&P) sector. What level of sustained reinvestment is required to offset depletion and meet demand growth for both oil and natural gas going forward? We'll discuss:

  • Levels of capital spending cuts since 2014 compared to historical reinvestment rates.
  • Estimates of capital required over the next five years to replace depletion and meet expected growth.
  • The cash-flow outlook for E&P businesses as a guide to their capacity to invest.
  • Hard choices required to balance capital investment with other demands on cash flow.

Explore ways E&P businesses can balance immediate cash-preservation needs vs. future new-production-investment needs.
