Our experts views

The first half of 2023 has been exciting for the upstream industry, Rystad Energy’s recent analysis on the 1Q23 results of global supermajors ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, Eni, TotalEnergies, Equinor, and BP highlighted the conundrum that the six face when it comes to spending their record-high cash reserves which totals close to $150 billion, nearly double historical averages. These, combined with record-low net debt-to-equity ratios, provide a solid financial footing from which to invest. But so far, there is no indication that any of the six plan to spend significant funds in growing organically in the upstream, downstream or renewable energy space this year. Which begs the question: where exactly do the majors expect to allocate their substantial capital reserves this year?
