-- How much will CAPEX decline with sub-$60 barrel prices?
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Dec. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Declining oil prices are impacting short term exploration and production (E&P) capital expenditures (CAPEX) and profitability, and will provide impetus to shift toward smart CAPEX and innovative operational expenditure (OPEX), according to new Frost & Sullivan research.
The research, "2015 E&P CAPEX Outlook Model," estimates global E&P spending in 2015 to decline to $659.8 billion, down from an estimated $723.3 billion in 2014, if the price of crude oil remains around $60 per barrel. This up-to-the-minute research covers key topics, including top predictions for the oil and gas industry for the fiscal year 2015 and impact of oil price fluctuations on the future of the oil and gas industry.
