  • Deepwater investment provides a growing opportunity

    A. Latham

    Much disagreement exists about the total size and accessibility of remaining, global, deepwater oil and gas reserves. At a time when investors strive to minimize risk, and invest in only the best, most secure opportunities, how accurately can one quantify the value that might be released from these assets and thus contribute to more effective decision-making? To bring greater clarity to the subject, Wood Mackenzie teamed up with Fugro Robertson to carry out a definitive study, “The Future of Deepwater,” into the long-term potential of both known and as-yet-undiscovered deepwater reserves. This project combined fundamental geoscience principles with a practical understanding of commercial realities to give the complete picture. This wide-ranging study produced a comprehensive, definitive document that identifies locations, scales of opportunity and potential risks involved in deepwater E&P.
