Five-Year Offshore O&G EPC to Hit $276 Bn Mark
A review of offshore oil and gas engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) activities in the first half of 2022 has been a mixed bag, emboldened by Brent oil price averaging $70/bbl in 2021 and $107/bbl in 1H 2022.
However, despite an increase in early-stage engagement of the supply chain by E&Ps and a steady growth in the number of pre-sanction projects, the optimism for a bumper year has been somewhat tempered, with Westwood’s 2022 offshore EPC contract award value now estimated to close at $68 billion, 18 lower than our January 2022 outlook.

Oil Rises on Supply Concerns and Weaker Dollar
Oil rallied above $100 after the Saudis declined to make any promises regarding future output increases, while a weaker dollar also helped put wider commodity markets on firmer footing.
West Texas Intermediate rose 5.1% to settle above $102 a barrel. Saudi ministers insisted at the conclusion of President Joe Biden’s visit last week that oil policy decisions would be dictated by market logic and with coalition agreement. Iraq’s oil minister told Bloomberg he sees oil trading above $100 for the rest of the year.

Mexico denies energy policy breach after Canada joins U.S. demand
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador denied his energy policies breached a regional trade agreement after Canada challenged them. Speaking at a regular news conference, Lopez Obrador said Mexico would defend control of its oil as well as its power market policies.
Canada joined a U.S. demand for dispute settlement talks over his energy agenda. The demand was the culmination of years of concern among U.S. and Canadian companies that Lopez Obrador’s drive to tighten state control of energy treated them unfairly and was in breach of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
