The Oil Sands Market Report 2015-2025 Updated Oil Price with Scenario Forecasts for CAPEX, OPEX & Production

Jul 06, 2015, 09:00 ET from Visiongain

LONDON, July 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

The oil sands market will experience a dramatic downturn in 2015 as the impact of the oil price fall impacts upon project economics and company budgets. An almost equally significant decline will be seen in 2018 as the last under-construction oil sands mining and upgrading projects are completed. The extent to which oil sands investment recovers over subsequent years will be highly dependent upon oil prices. Oil sands are towards the top end of the cost spectrum in terms of oil resource development, though there is a significant difference between the break even prices of new in-situ and oil sands mining projects.

Operators have an incentive to continue producing from existing oil sands projects, as in nearly all cases operational expenditure per barrel (OPEX/bbl) will be lower than the oil price. Most under-construction projects will also be completed due to funds already having been committed. However, producers have already cut their 2015 capital expenditure (CAPEX) budgets, and spending over the forecast will be highly correlated with the oil price. More projects will become economic as oil prices rise, pipelines are approved and the WCS-WTI differential narrows.

Visiongain calculates the oil sands market to be worth $31.7bn in 2015 in its anticipated oil price scenario, which is a reduction of nearly 15% from 2014 levels. The amount of oil sands spending over the coming decade will vary considerably in different regions and according to the technologies used, however.
