The World Economic Forum’s fifth report highlighted the acceleration of the global energy transition underway in how energy is produced, consumed and distributed. As the future energy landscape evolves at differing paces across the world, consumers are increasingly driving the decisions on which energy sources they want.
For the oil and gas industry to fully embrace the opportunities in this rapidly evolving energy landscape and underpin their future economic survival, it must ensure their business models can respond quickly to rapidly changing market conditions.
This session will focus on future trends of the oil and gas industry, and what is required by companies to ensure they are able to survive and thrive in the future energy landscape.

Breakfast briefing: Energy Outlookin partnership with BP

Wednesday, 21 February 2018

The global energy landscape is changing. The 2018 BP Energy Outlook will set out a base case outlining the ‘most likely’ path for global energy markets until 2035, based on assumptions and judgements about future changes in policy, technology and the economy, as well as developing alternative cases to explore key uncertainties.
This one-hour breakfast briefing, followed by a moderated discussion, will give delegates an opportunity to understand some of the key factors shaping energy markets over the  next 20 years, including the key risks and uncertainties.
Refreshments will be provided and delegates must pre-register in advance.

The drive towards a low carbon future

Wednesday, 21 February 2018 pwcr

Silver sponsors

Meeting future energy needs, whilst also tackling climate change, are grave challenges facing the energy sector now and for decades to come.
With countries such as the UK, France and China announcing the end of sales of new petrol and diesel cars, should the oil and gas industry be responding to potential ‘peak demand’ and focussing more closely on diversification?
This session will review the current challenges and potential opportunities of meeting our global decarbonisation targets, as well as exploring the vital role the oil and gas industry must play at the heart of this energy transition.

A framework for companies from developed nations to help build capacity in developing nations
A decade ago, companies complemented their investment activities with Corporate Social Responsibility. Whilst well-intended, results often missed the mark as companies attempted to ‘go it alone’ without good implementing partners. More recently, there has been a shift to social performance, akin to approaches by development agencies and NGOs. Again, this has had unintended consequences, often causing investors to do what governments should do with mixed results and unfulfilled commitments. We consider a third way - socioeconomic investment - where companies play to their strengths. Investment in business development, support for STEM education and shared infrastructure could be the right trio.
• Establishing the gaps and needs that will help developing countries in the future
• The partnership between developed and developing countries in enhancing capacity building actions
• The deployment of technology

Mobilising climate finance

Several trends support the growth of climate finance: 1) expanding political will, 2) market participants’ unilateral commitments, 3) the G20 Taskforce for Climate-risk related Financial Disclosure, 4) legally-binding policy measures, and 5) the Nationally Determined Contributions submitted under the Paris Agreement.
A suite of innovative financial products has emerged for corporates and investors. These include carbon market-related hedging products, green bonds, green loans, climate-linked smart-beta and green finance for supply-chains.
Insights in climate finance will be shared from Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s experience with its Catalytic Finance Initiative and $125 billion low-carbon business commitment.

The evolving role of gas as a cleaner fuel alternative

Wednesday, 21 February 2018
jlc

Silver sponsors

SponsorherbertGold sponsor
Natural gas is often described as the cleanest fossil fuel and has the potential to aid global emissions reduction, particularly when used in innovative ways such as blending with biogas. Tackling fugitive methane emissions during gas production and carbon emissions during combustion will also be important for the long-term future of gas in the energy mix.
With gas likely to displace more carbon intensive fuels in transport and power generation going forward, this session will focus on the future role of gas in the ever-evolving energy landscape.

The outlook for China’s LNG supply and demand

During the 13th Five-year Plan period, naturalgasmarket competition will intensify as global supply loosens.
In the Opinions on Accelerating NaturalGas Use issued by 13 authorities incl. the NDRC, MIIT and MOF on June 23rd, 2017, it was clarified that priority should be given to reform and innovation in naturalgasmarket development, system barriers to the industry’s healthy development should be removed and market should play a decisive role in naturalgasresources allocation.
It is inevitable for naturalgas to become a mainenergy in China as various capital is allowed to tap the naturalgas infrastructure construction and utilization fields and market-orientedreform is speeding up.

MENA Energy Summit: Navigating the new normal of global oil & gas trade flows?
Middle East knowledge partner
herbert Gold sponsor

Thursday, 22 February 2018

Increased shale production will transform the U.S. into one of the world's top oil exporters in just a few years, with estimates that American crude exports will grow to 2.25 million barrels a day by 2020, a four-fold increase from 2016.


The boom would put the U.S. in roughly the same league as major oil exporters including the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait. The major increase in supply would further undermine the strength of OPEC, which was exporting an average of 25 million barrels a day in 2016. Meanwhile the European and Asian gas markets are becoming more and more competitive and US exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) will be a major part of this landscape.

Briefings

Thursday, 22 February 2018
Organised in small boardroom-style groups, the IP Week roundtables offer the opportunity for senior business leaders to come together to discuss experiences and learn in an informal environment.
Each session will last approximately one hour and attendance is by pre-registration.
Organisational learning from incidents: what it means to be an effective learning organisation

Through a lens of safety, the session will explore the latest knowledge around how organisations learn, building on work captured in the EI’s recent Tripod Foundation and Hearts and Minds publications.
Through the roundtable discussion participants will reflect on their own challenges and successes in this process.
Topics include:
* Building a supportive learning environment
* Understanding the skills required to facilitate transformational learning
* Learning and punishment: why an organisational blame culture inhibits learning of system causes

Showcasing women in the energy sector

The energy sector is tackling a wide range of important issues; from keeping the lights on to helping consumers reduce energy waste and building a more sustainable low carbon future. Because industry competitiveness relies on being able to attract and retain a diverse pool of talent capable of bringing fresh perspectives, Powerful Women believes a much stronger female influence is needed at the top table. In collaboration with PwC we published ‘Igniting Change’ (2015) – Building the pipeline of female leaders in energy’. This eye-opening research highlighted that only 5% of executive board seats within the top UK-based energy companies were held by women, while 61% had no women on their board.
Topics include:

• How to advance the professional growth and leadership development of women across the energy sector

• How to support and encourage energy companies to appoint more women to senior roles as part of building stronger businesses and adapting to changing markets

• What can we learn from the success stories of women and companies in the energy sector?

• Exploring some of the gender diversity strategies and initiatives in energy companies:

o What success looks like so far?

o How we can scale up what is working?
