Huge capex cuts in global O&G upstream in 2020: Petronas


Dateline 2021-04-05, NST:

The global oil and gas’ upstream sector has seen significant cuts in capital expenditure (capex) with spending below about US$400 billion in 2020.

This was less than half than the peak in 2014, Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) executive vice president and chief executive officer (upstream) Adif Zulkifli said.

“Companies had to make important decisions to remain resilient by keeping costs low and margins intact. Projects were put on hold, asset equipment impairments saw an upswing and job cuts were widespread within the industry,” he said in a keynote address at the inaugural virtual Re-Imagining Malaysia Assets (Reset) 2021 Conference here today.
