BMI View: While we see a provisional uptick in oil and gas production in the UK based on projects in thepipeline, the long-term trend remains one of stagnation - given falling volumes from mature fields; a lack ofsignificant new discoveries; falling oil prices; and increasing exploration, production and operational costsin the region, at a time when oil companies are seeking capex cuts. While shale gas presents upside risk togas production, this will not come online before the early 2020s at the earliest and we expect anydevelopment to be protracted. Significant fiscal incentives put in place following the ongoing fiscal reviewprovide some upside risk to our oil and gas production outlook past 2018/2019. However, further reformsand higher sustained oil prices will be necessary to realise this upside risk.The main trends and developments we highlight in the UK oil and gas sector are:Exploration

- We retain our bearish oil and gas exploration forecasts this quarter, with 2016 shaping up to bepotentially weaker then the woeful performance of 2015. Low oil prices, maturing fields and highoperating costs make the UK North Sea region a relatively unattractive area for exploration. This willmostly endure over the coming years, despite the recent fiscal and development incentives enacted inearly 2015.

- Th

e impact of the tax reductions for all E&Ps operating in the North Sea, will have a negligible impact onexploration levels as companies focus on maximising production rather than expanding their resourcebase.

- The British parliament passed regulations permitting the drilling underneath protected area that includenational parks, Areas of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB), the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads and World Heritage Sites. Companies will be allowed dill wellheads outside of protected areas and drillhorizontally beneath the parks at a minimum depth of 1,200m.
