Frankly, the last time oil prices tumbled, the ANH was less than helpful. There was a grand event where the ANH and the then-minister announced great things! Only to have the agency’s lawyers and the board rip these ‘great things’ to shreds and create regulations that were more onerous and more costly than the ones from which the industry was supposed to have relief. Here Marianna Boza and the team from Brigard Urrutia give us an overview of the latest ‘help’. It does appear to help companies optimize their exploration portfolios but we will leave it to the firms themselves to decide if this is enough to compensate for Brent in the low 30’s.
