With the oil price having fallen from over US$110/bbl to lows below US$50/bbl over the past eight months, E&P companies are lobbying for tax cuts in many countries. In most mature basins, relatively low costs and the design of fiscal regimes should mitigate the impact of lower prices on the viability of oil and gas developments. However, with costs for new sources of supply likely to be higher as the industry moves into more challenging locations, government responses to the current price scenario are likely to significantly impact the supply outlook for the long term.
