Key highlights

Supermajor Transformation Report

The six supermajors BP, Shell, TotalEnergies, ExxonMobil, Chevron, and Eni set the trend for the rest of the industry. The report series examines in depth each major’s transition strategy, financial performance, corporate targets, emissions performance and reduction plans, and value at risk, as well as their forward-looking portfolio investments and diversification into CCUS, hydrogen, and renewable energy. This analysis will help other oil and gas companies to better understand the range of pathways that could put them at the forefront of the market, and will provide financial institutions and regulators with a better understanding of how the majors’ transition strategies affect their performance within a range of key performance indicators.

Corporate Benchmarking Report

These reports allow readers to compare and contrast companies’ performance along the following dimensions: financial performance, cost and carbon competitiveness, exploration strategies, portfolio investments, mergers and acquisitions, value at risk, portfolio transformation targets, and expansion plans within low-carbon sectors.

Energy Transition Risk Report

This regular report is delivered to clients twice a year, providing a long-term outlook for the upstream industry based on various demand scenarios.

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, 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: What should companies be doing to remain investable in the new market reality?
