With the New Year well under way, natural resources companies are beginning to develop a strong idea of how the events of 2014 are influencing the shape of things to come in 2015.

In this post, we present the fifth BDO Explorer Quarterly Cash Update, a BDO Australia research report providing commentary on both the quarterly and annual cash flow data for Australian-listed mining, and oil and gas exploration entities (that have lodged Appendix 5B cash flow statements with the ASX).   Our report continues to show challenging times for junior explorers. For the first time since we started this analysis in September 2013, more than 10 percent of exploration companies did not partake in any exploration activities in the June quarter of 2014.

The Oil & Gas Awards take place regionally throughout North America in the Gulf Coast, Midcontinent, Northeast, Rocky Mountain, Southwest and West Coast. Winners of the Oil & Gas Awards will be announced at the Oil & Gas Awards Gala Dinner in the relevant region between October 21 and October 29, 2014.

The U.S. oil and gas industry continues to thrive as the country’s economy improves steadily and shale remains profitable. In BDO’s Oil and Gas RiskFactor Report this year—an analysis of the risk factors listed in the most recent 10-K filings of the 100 largest public U.S. E&P companies—we discovered that while the top 20 industry risks remain largely consistent with previous years’ studies, a few new concerns are beginning to surface.

The Oil & Gas Awards have announced the final deadlines for entries for its upcoming slate of awards galas for the Southwest, West Coast and Midcontinent regions. The final deadline for entries for these regions is now Thursday, July 17, 2014. "With a national media audience of over 500,000, the Oil & Gas Awards are an unbeatable way to showcase the industry at its best," said the event's organizers. The 2014 Oil & Gas Awards ceremonies will be held in Bakersfield, Calif., on Oct. 21; Dallas on Oct. 23; and Oklahoma City on Oct. 29. In addition to the awards galas, this year's Oil & Gas Awards events will include industry summits focused on creating regional networking opportunities and roundtable discussions on the issues facing the industry in each region.
