- The meltdown was the result of a revelation by the company of its dismal performance in Ghana. The company’s flagship operation has a list of technical issues – in particular, more water than expected has entered its oil field.

- Tullow slashed its production guidance to just 70,000 bpd in 2020, down from 100,000 previously.

3. Shale base declines increase

- The IEA sees U.S. shale growing by 1.1 mb/d in 2020, down from 1.6 mb/d in 2019, but still a substantial growth rate.
