Among top offshore producing countries, Ghana and Norway stand out with the best economics for yet to be sanctioned oil projects, while Vietnam, Russia, Mexico and Nigeria exhibit the higherst breakeven prices. Ghana’s Jubilee phase 1B and Norway’s Johan Castberg, Valhall West Flank and the second phase of Johan Sverdrup will be profitable at oil prices below 40 USD/bbl. Recent significant discoveries, such as the ExxonMobil-operated Liza, offshore Guyana, and the large deepwater SNE field offshore Senegal, operated by Cairn Energy, exhibit breakevens around 50-55 USD/bbl. In Russia, key upcoming offshore oil projects, Lukoil’s Rakuchechnoye and Kravtsovskoye, are estimated to be commercial at an oil price of around 60 USD/bbl.
