PART A - QUALIFYING ACQUISITION ("QA")
1. What is your view on the outlook for oil & gas industry in 2016?
Fossil fuels of the oil and gas industry would continue to be the dominant energy source for the world. The exploration and production of fossil fuels would continue at concerted efforts in spite of the current oil price scenario, as it has been for decades.

We estimate the oil prices to settle around USD50 – USD60 per barrel in 2016.

However, production and maintenance activities would have to continue as these directly impact oil and gas asset performance and asset integrity.read more
