  • OMV’s decision to take a controlling stake in Borealis Group, a European petrochemicals leader, for $4.68 billion in H1’21 marked a critical milestone in its transition to an integrated chemicals company. Compared to its European peers, OMV’s embrace of petrochemicals over renewables for its transition strategy will markedly impact its investment plans moving forward. Having pursued an aggressive M&A expansion (2017-20), OMV has now placed a moratorium on acquisitions in the near-term as it seeks to deleverage from its debt-heavy Borealis purchase. In the near term, OMV will prioritize divestments and managing core upstream production assets, as well as likely pursuing downstream growth outside of Europe in the longer term.

  • The strategic divide between differing corporate responses to the energy transition is slow to narrow, even as firms across the industry spectrum roll out new low-carbon plans, targets and spending. The latest results of our Transition Strategy Index – expanded to cover 29 major oil and gas companies – show how companies are taking action to confront transition risks but remain far apart in their approaches. The Index analyses and assesses how companies are positioning for the energy transition – and which are most exposed to the challenges of accelerating global industry change. Attention is turning from formation of strategies to implementation efforts, with rising scrutiny of both European Majors’ bold transformational plans, and of other firms following more modest adaptation pathways. Companies’ financial resilience, eroded by Covid-19, is set to recover, and will help companies deliver on plans.

  • Exploration activity in 2023 is continuing on pace, with traditional regions experiencing an uptick in activity as well as frontier plays, as companies seek organic growth options. Mexico is experiencing a green patch with exploration successes by Eni and Wintershall Dea, and as operators aim to complete exploration license commitments that expire this year. The resumption of USGOM lease sales, despite earlier policy uncertainty, is providing confidence to regional operators and reigniting limited exploration activity. Several high-impact wells by TotalEnergies, Chevron, Eni, Shell and BP are anticipated in the Eastern Mediterranean through the second and third quarter of 2023.
