Global energy project activity has slowed during the last quarter (Q4: Oct-Dec 2013), dropping to 412 projects, a significant 21% decrease compared to Q3 2013, but a small 2% increase on Q4 2012, while the total potential investment value of US$222.3 billion has almost halved on the last quarter, decreasing by 48%, according to the EIC Monitor quarterly report from the Energy Industries Council (EIC).

EIC Monitor tracks nearly 10,000 projects proposed or under development in the global energy industry and provides a barometer, broken down into oil and gas (downstream, midstream, upstream), nuclear and conventional power, and the renewables sectors. Data is analysed by the number and value of new (both active and proposed) projects recorded by the EIC each quarter.
