Total free cash flows for all public E&P companies

August 3, 2018

We see considerable improvements in both the cash from operations and free cash flows (FCF) for E&P companies in 2018. For 2018, we expect FCF to reach an all-time high of ~$325 billion. The main reasons for the improvements in FCF are higher oil prices, lower costs and low investment levels.
