I would have added a few more swear words in the title, but hey.
Dateline 2016-04-27, The Star:
HE year 2016 will be one marked with challenges for the oil and gas (O&G) industry, with slower progress in the upstream sector, according to the National Transformation Programme (NTP) annual report 2015.
The industry is no stranger to trying conditions, having gone through a similar cycle when oil prices went down below US$10 per barrel in 1998.
The difference this time around is that the industry and the players are better positioned to face uncertainties, having built competency and capacity over the years.
As an upside, the current situation creates a stronger impetus for O&G players to take measures that will inevitably strengthen their operations and help them create resilience against volatilities and unexpected industry developments.
