At the Oil and Gas Council, our role is to ensure we reflect our membership. It hasn’t escaped our notice that many of our members are undergoing efforts to realign their core business to a broader energy focus. Additionally, our network of financiers and investors are increasingly open to new opportunities that don’t sit in the traditional realms of upstream.
Our network has been built around connectivity, trust, integrity and most important impartiality. This final pillar presents an important distinction to many of the initiatives currently being pursued in the clean energy space.
I suppose a good place to start would be about a year before the oil price fell, in 2013. We noticed at that time that the industry cost structure had become severely inflated. Our ultra deepwater wildcats could cost $250 million gross and the industry was maxed-out in terms of activity and this was stretching global capacity and global capability.
As a consequence, the industry performance as a whole at the top of the last cycle wasn’t that good because of the over-reach and the very high cost structure.
I would expect JV counterparty distress to become a major challenge in a sustained low-price environment, as some players in the industry face a very real insolvency risk.
