Briefing: Fuel authentication and traceability throughout the supply chain: advancing quality & sustainability

Wednesday 26th February

TBC
Inter Continental Park Lane
When fuel integrity is compromised, it can have damaging effects on the environment, as well as revenue and consumer trust. In order to mitigate these challenges, fuel companies and government agencies need the ability to track and validate the quality of their fuel at all points in their supply chain. In this briefing, learn where the vulnerabilities are and how chemical and digital fuel authentication technologies have evolved to help improve and protect the environment, while identifying and removing fuel manipulation throughout the supply chain.


  • Yanos Michopoulos, Managing Director, Oil & Gas, Authentix
Briefing: Agenda 2030: How leading oil companies are preparing for the future - oil, revenue protection and the future of energy

Wednesday 26th February

TBC
Inter Continental Park Lane
In 2019 Amphora conducted a major survey targeting nearly 1000 oil companies. Most such suppliers face significant pressure to help our planet switch to a lower carbon economy. This survey does not focus on their alternative energy strategy but addresses a more realistic scenario where abundant oil reserves continue to be available for decades to come. Respondents from a wide variety of companies global and regional shared insights on how they plan to operate in the following decade. Despite the challenges political, environmental and economic, many are optimistic of oil’s midterm future.

Moving away from well-publicised diversification strategies, the presentation will share key insights gathered from our survey including how oil companies are becoming increasingly self-reliant, using own funding rather than relying on an increasingly cautious capital market. In particular we will hear how companies are securing new supply routes into developing nations and the challenges this poses.

Briefing: Exploring low emission pathways for transport

Thursday 27th February

TBC
Inter Continental Park Lane
Transport is the backbone of modern society, providing unprecedented levels of personal mobility and facilitating global trade and commerce. As a major emitter of CO2, the transport sector will require a transformation over the course of the century to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. A wide range of technologies will be necessary for the sector to evolve to a low-emissions future. Improvements in engine efficiencies and optimized vehicle/vessel designs will continue to provide significant emissions reductions. In addition, battery technologies, biofuels, hydrogen and mobility systems will all contribute to the transformation of the transport sector in the medium and long term. This briefing will explore the opportunities and technologies for decarbonizing the transport sector and its various sub-segments, including electric vehicles, heavy-duty transport, aviation and commercial shipping.

Speakers will include representatives from oil companies, refineries, ship operators, port infrastructure representatives, IMO, gas and marine fuel suppliers, aviation fuel suppliers, air transport representatives.
  • Shipping
  • Aviation - Insights into reducing carbon dioxide emissions within the aviation sector - The development of sustainable aviation fuels
  • Trucks and buses - Viewpoints on alternative fuels for heavy duty road transport - Developing infrastructure in small-scale LNG for bunkers and road transport
  • Light duty vehicles - The future of sustainable mobility and scenarios for the future - Reshaping energy infrastructure to enable grid integration of electric vehicles
  • Options for supply of sustainable fuels

  • Jim Herbertson, Technical Director, Climate and Energy, IPIECA

Young Professional Networking

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.

Associate Members:

AMEI's can also attend the rest of IP Week at a substantially discounted rate with unique access to leaders and opinion formers, and networking opportunities. Why not ask your employer to show their commitment to your professional development by paying for your registration? View the rates.

Feedback from previous delegates:
