Southeast Asia Oil and Gas 2011 OGI Release

July 05, 2011

Despite the financial havoc and economic upheaval resulting from the global financial crisis, whereby companies went bankrupt and countries suffered massive retrenchments in growth rates, companies in Asia often ask, “What crisis?” Asian countries continue to boast high GDP growth rates and those economies that did suffer, have since regained their former pace of growth. The falling oil and gas prices naturally affected the global exploration and production (E&P) scene, but nowhere is the hope and excitement for a comeback as evident as in the Southeast Asian region today. As Asian powerhouses continue to expand, demand for oil and gas will increase and, with prices once again nearing pre-crisis levels, Southeast Asia will represent one of the most exciting and dynamic regions for investment in the oil and gas sector.

Chile Mining 2024 Pre-Release

The Chilean mining renaissance has begun. In 2024, the country is set to experience its first increase in copper production since 2018, driven by Codelco’s production surge and Teck Resources’ Quebrada Blanca II coming online. This year also saw the first major regulatory update since 1983 with amendments to Law No. 21,420, which modernized the mining framework. The government has shown strong support for the industry by committing to reduce permit processing times by a third and proposing 20 actionable measures to streamline processes. Additionally, Chile classified its 69 saline environments, leaving 31 open for private development and initiating a request for information process in April to rapidly advance these areas.



"We plan to double our copper production by the end of the decade. There remains significant upside potential in the gold industry, and the copper operations are strategic and additive to that."
