        US OCS Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Report - Favorable Fiscal Terms but Strong State and Judicial Opposition to Expanding the OCS on Offer

        Summary

        The Unites States offers regular licensing rounds paired with favorable fiscal and stable regulatory terms, which score well for licensees when compared with neighboring countries’ petroleum fiscal frameworks. However, the administration’s decision of halting the opening up to hydrocarbons exploration of practically all parts of the OCS as a result of strong political and judicial opposition leaves the schedule of the lease sales based on the 2017-2022 program. The result will be slowing investments pace as initially planned when the administration introduced the draft program 2019-2024. Whether or not additional OCS areas are opened, the Gulf of Mexico is likely to continue to contribute the bulk of licensing activity. The administration has recently reduced its fiscal take favoring investors, but few significant further changes appear on the horizon.
