Abstract

Though welcome, the fiscal incentives introduced in the Finance Act 2009 aiming to maximise hydrocarbon recovery were inadequate. The UK Government should avoid the mistakes made by their counterparts in the United States, ignore the temptations to alter the fiscal regime and give a clear message of fiscal stability to win back the faith the industry once had in it.
