The Scottish energy consultancy says the dramatic fall in oil prices in 2014 and subsequent dismantling of 2015 company budgets has already already resulted in over 45 major projects delayed this year.

Earlier this year the same firm said it expected $12-billion worth of projects in the Canadian oil and gas sector to be deferred this year, $20-billion in 2016 and $27 billion in 2017, as far as oil prices remain under $58 per barrel.
