Middle East: NOCs in Transformation – Destination? SponsorIn partnership with SponsorGold sponsor

The energy industry is being disrupted into new definitions that aren’t exactly clear yet. But as the centre of gravity in the global downstream industry shifts away from developed nations and toward energy-hungry emerging countries East of Suez, National Oil Companies (NOCs) have begun adjusting their strategies to meet the resulting changes in demand flows.

Over the past decade, Gulf-based NOCs have been at the forefront of those pushing far down the industry value chain, extending their business portfolios into storage and shipping, and bulk products such as petrochemicals. Additionally NOCs are becoming INOCs that venture beyond their home borders, competing or teaming up with IOCs, service companies or independents on energy developments as they seek to diversify their portfolios and gain access to new know-how and technologies.

Shaping the gas and LNG landscape Sponsor Silver sponsor

In order to meet the terms of the Paris Agreement, the use of natural gas for generation of electricity, heat and transport will need to increase. LNG will be a key contributor on this journey as it has already become an important part of the supply picture with the number of countries importing it doubling over the past 10 years. The shale revolution has added new volume and the IEA predicts consumption of natural gas is set to grow. This conference will discuss how the industry will meet this rising demand.

IP Week Workshop - Climate change advice to governments: how the petroleum industry can contribute

As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) starts work on its 6th Assessment Report due in 2022, its Chair, a former oil industry economist, has explicitly called for a greater contribution from business. Following COP 22 in Marrakech, this session will consider how the hitherto separate worlds of the international petroleum industry and climate change science can be better linked. It will address both what IPCC could do, and what the industry needs to do, to achieve a constructive dialogue.
