How do you select the right mix of assets and investments in digital to have a portfolio that: • Supports your conventional industry strengths • Maintains relevance now and in the future by meeting transforming stakeholder demands • Is fit for future growth as the industry transforms under digitalization, decarbonization and energy convergence In this session, we plan to also discuss findings from a recent survey: New technology can light the way, but do you know where you’re going? The report reveals that the oil and gas industry is beginning to comprehend the truly world-changing possibilities of digital. With many companies looking to reimagine their business, they are recognizing the opportunities created by technology such as autonomous machines, new exploration tools and blockchain. However, companies must adopt a critical gaze when developing and refining their approach to digital, or else they risk aiming too low and missing out on the transformative potential of new technologies. In-depth view of the state of digitalization in oil and gas, developed from our survey of 100 executives across the value chain.

Young Professionals Network (YPN): Future-proofing your Career: Role of IOCs in the Energy Transition

Wednesday 27th February

19:00 - 21:00
Inter Continental Park Lane
The industry is in a state of flux. So what role can oil and gas play in the future of energy supply in a wider energy mix, and in developing the careers of young energy professionals? The energy mix continues to diversify with an increase in low carbon investment influenced by growing environmental concern, changing energy policy, and advancing technology. Mention of “Peak Oil” has been replaced with a renewed focus on improving efficiency and productivity, and innovative ways to de-carbonise and diversify portfolios. Fossil fuels sill provide for most of our energy needs, and there is growing demand globally that cannot be met with renewable energy sources alone, or at least with today’s technology. We also know that historically, energy transitions have taken time, but the pace of future change remains uncertain. All of this, while the oil industry is setting itself up for success in the UKCS, by becoming more resilient to the tumultuous oil price and market changes, with improving behaviours, efficiency, and increasing project investment, as part of the industry’s shared ambition for “Vision 2035”. Come along to this speaker panel event to hear senior industry leaders debate the main opportunities and challenges facing the oil and gas industry in the next 10 years, and to engage in discussion and networking with peers over a few drinks. Free tickets are limited, and allocated on a first come, first served basis. We look forward to seeing you there! EI London and Home Counties YPN Committee.

The Middle East energy summit: International leadership panel - outlook for Middle East energy industry in 100 million barrel a day world?

Thursday 28th February

10:20 - 10:50
Inter Continental Park Lane
Global oil consumption has reached a new peak of 100 million barrels a day with no sign of ceasing. While some argue that the record number is a sign of peak demand, the IEA expects world oil demand to rise for at least the next 20 years, on target for 125 million bpd around mid-century. How will the Middle East meet this rising energy demand whilst also maintaining its competitive edge on the global market as existing and new producers increase their output? The United States is expected to hit 12 million bpd in domestic oil production this year and is starting to consolidate its position as a leading energy exporter. Should Gulf producers be concerned about losing market share in Asia and how will the current OPEC priority to keep demand and supply in balance impact dynamics?

Thursday 28th February

11.10 - 12:55
Inter Continental Park Lane
How Should The Energy Industry Adapt to Retain its License to Operate in Era of Populism & Protectionism?
The global financial crisis of 2009 and the resulting economic impact since, has led to a substantial part of society becoming disillusioned by the rise of globalization and the integrated economic systems that it underpins. Simultaneously, and as a counterforce, the past decade has also ushered the developed world into the 4th industrial revolution (4IR) and the plethora of new technologies on offer under its umbrella, opening up the potential for increased connectivity across economic value chains and new synergies across borders. How should energy companies adapt to the need to balance the obvious benefits and economic opportunities of international partnerships, technology adoption and cost-effective integration while ensuring that these same strategies fit comfortably with the social policies and economic protectionism of host countries?

Thursday 28th February

11.10 - 12:55
Inter Continental Park Lane
Will vertical integration prove to be the most promising peak-demand strategy for Middle East NOCs?
One of the Middle East’s main economic pillars, petrochemicals, is under threat as countries such as the US benefit from lower costs of production on the back of cheaper feedstocks like naphtha and ethylene. Middle Eastern countries have been committing billions of dollars to develop their petrochemical and chemical industries in a bid to retain market share, add value to their hydrocarbons value chain, diversify their economies and create jobs for their young populations. Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) plans to invest $44.9 billion along with its partners over five years to expand its downstream operations for example. The renewed focus on downstream is, as with everything across the energy sector, triggered and supported by Asia’s rising consumption. Will regional NOCs be able to keep ahead of the curve and secure demand and revenue in this increasingly competitive market?

Briefing: How is the marine fuels supply chain responding to the IMO 2020 bunker fuel specification changes?

Thursday 28th February

14:00 - 15:30
Inter Continental Park Lane
In October 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) set a global limit for the sulphur content of fuel for use on board ships to a maximum of 0.50% m/m with effect from 1st January 2020. Alternatively, should the ship continue to use high – sulphur fuel, the use of an equivalent method of compliance to desulphurize exhaust emissions to the same or less than the level that would have been achieved had the vessel been using 0.50% m/m sulphur fuel is mandated. The implementation of this rulemaking by IMO will have far-reaching implications throughout the entire marine fuel supply chain, from refining, through distribution, bunkering, handling and storage on board the vessel, through to final use in boilers or in marine diesel engines for propulsion. Refiners will need to formulate and make process changes to ensure the supply of “compliant fuel” while ensuring there are markets for the remaining residual fuels. Suppliers will need to adjust handling, testing, documentation and record-keeping procedures to ensure their clients are able to demonstrate compliance. There will be changes to many aspects of current regulations and operators will need to ensure they understand new flag, port state control or IMO rules/guidelines or the alternative means of compliance if fitting exhaust gas cleaning and scrubbing equipment. The new regulations will affect engineering staff on board ships who will need to safely address issues such as fuel compatibility, fuel stability, fuel handling, segregation and storage. This briefing features presentations from key industry figures as well as an interactive panel session to answer participant questions.

Future-proofing your Career: Role of IOCs in the Energy Transition

The EI London and Home Counties YPN Committee held a speaker panel event and drinks reception on 27 February 2019 from 19:00 – 21:00.

About the event:

The energy mix continues to diversify with an increase in low carbon investment influenced by growing environmental concern, changing energy policy, and advancing technology. Mention of “Peak Oil” has been replaced with a renewed focus on improving efficiency and productivity, and innovative ways to de-carbonise and diversify portfolios. Fossil fuels still provide for most of our energy needs, and there is growing demand globally that cannot be met with renewable energy sources alone, or at least with today’s technology. We also know that historically, energy transitions have taken time, but the pace of future change remains uncertain. All of this, while the oil industry is setting itself up for success in the UKCS, by becoming more resilient to the tumultuous oil price and market changes, with improving behaviours, efficiency, and increasing project investment, as part of the industry’s shared ambition for “Vision 2035”.

Delegates who attended this speaker panel event got to hear senior industry leaders debate the main opportunities and challenges facing the oil and gas industry in the next 10 years and engage in discussion and networking with peers over a few drinks.
