The world's biggest oil and gas companies are cutting spending this year following a collapse in oil prices driven by a slump in demand because of the coronavirus crisis and a price war between top exporters Saudi Arabia and Russia. Cuts already announced by eight major oil companies, including Saudi Aramco and Royal Dutch Shell, come to a combined $28 billion, or a drop of 20% from their initial spending plans of $142 billion. BP cut its 2020 spending plan by 25% and will reduce output from its U.S. shale oil and gas business, it said on Wednesday.
The world's biggest oil and gas firms should break an industry taboo and consider cutting dividends, rather than taking on any more debt to maintain payouts as they weather the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, investors say. The top five so-called oil majors have avoided reducing dividends for years to keep investors sweet and added a combined $25 billion to debt levels in 2019 to maintain capital spending, while giving back billions to shareholders. The strategy was designed to maintain the appeal of oil company stocks as investors came under increased pressure from climate activists to ditch the shares and help the world move faster towards meeting carbon emissions targets.
Spending on new oil and gas projects could fall by more than two thirds this year if oil prices remain at the current levels, the Oslo-based Rystad Energy consultancy said on Monday. Crude oil prices dropped more than 60% since the start of the year as demand fell due to travel and business restrictions to stem the spread of the coronavirus, while Russia and Saudi Arabia ended an agreement to curb production. North Sea oil was trading at $25.7 a barrel by 1533 GMT on Monday.
Most North Sea oil and gas fields can make money at $30 a barrel, but stakeholders in the fields that have to be shut in the current price rout are set to face a huge bill for removing facilities like platforms and subsea infrastructure, Wood Mackenzie said. The North Sea between Britain and Norway, home of the Brent crude stream that underpins global oil prices, is one of the world's oldest and most expensive oil basins. Crude oil prices have posted four straight weeks of losses and dropped more than 60% since the start of the year.

Britain's oil and gas sector needs financial help to survive, industry body OGUK said, as the oil price crash triggered by the coronavirus and a Saudi-Russian price war means they may be unable to keep producing hydrocarbons in the North Sea. Benchmark oil prices on Wednesday fell to around $25 a barrel, their lowest level in 17 years, as measures to tackle the virus outbreak have had a drastic impact on demand.
The recent collapse in oil prices could chop $300 million to $600 million off 2020 exploration budgets in Brazil, which has emerged as one of the world's hottest offshore oil plays, specialists at consultancy Wood Mackenzie told Reuters. Before oil prices collapsed in the wake of failed OPEC talks earlier this month, the consultancy had forecast that some $3 billion would be invested in exploration in Brazil, with state-run Petrobras, Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Norway's Equinor ASA leading the charge.
