Upstream Investment in the Middle East: Challenges and Opportunities in a Lower Price Environment

This presentation looks at the dynamics of investment in the Middle East’s oil and gas upstream sector following the recent fall in oil price. In contrast to most regions in the world that saw sharp cuts in capital expenditure, investment in the upstream oil and gas sector in the Middle East declined only marginally in nominal terms. Given the cost deflation in the supply chain this meant that activity was maintained and even increased in some countries as reflected in the sharp rise in the rig count, with key GCC producers still on track to achieve their ambitious plans to increase productive capacity (though delays to some projects are possible). But this is a tale of two regions: While GCC producers continue to invest and increase their productive capacity, Iraq has suffered from cuts in investment especially in much needed large infrastructure, adversely impacting oil output growth and plans to increase long-term productive capacity. In Iran, progress has been slow and despite the flurry of deals announced, these are still very preliminary and without foreign investment and technology, Iran’s upside potential from current production levels is rather limited. It is argued that IOCs’ strategies in the Middle East differ fundamentally, with few IOCs regarding chasing low cost Middle East barrels, and increasing their exposure to the region’s large reserve base, as a cornerstone of their strategy in a more uncertain world. The opening of Iran will offer opportunities for IOCs to increase their exposure to a large reserve base, but given the risks involved, such opportunities will be captured by only a few companies that have the patience and capability to manage these risks. The presentation concludes by arguing that during this downturn, the core GCC OPEC producers (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the UAE) consolidated their position by continuing to invest in their upstream sector reflecting their long-term thinking and hence benefiting the most from an upturn in the market; the rest of OPEC and most of the non-OPEC producers will have to play catch up.

Middle East: NOCs in Transformation – Destination? SponsorMiddle East knowledge partner SponsorGold sponsor

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

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.

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

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

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.

Panel discussion

- As future leaders of the energy industry we have seen recent political movements from the US administration that have potential to create a huge shift in the direction of the global energy mix, the global move to renewables and sustainable technologies and even create imbalance in the oil and gas markets (ie US protectionist policy in oil and gas could cause a supply glut and create another oil crisis – if the global market becomes extremely sensitive to US supply fundamentals).

- We as future energy leaders want to better understand an experts view on how sensitive the global outlook is to these policy changes from the Trump administration. Is the growth in renewables, sustainability and disruptive technologies too strong to be destabilized by any extreme US policies trickling into the global market? Could we see an oil price crash? Can we expect another period of peak oil? What about LNG, will US LNG become the new super power on the global energy stage?

- This is an extremely current and enticing topic that will complement IP week. Give young professionals – the future energy leaders a chance to engage, think about energy as a broader concept and also shape their day-to-day thinking when reading about political news and understanding how this can affect the outlook of all sectors of the energy industry

Questions like:

- What did you do in the past with your career when your industry faced political uncertainty?

- Will current global political events change young energy professional’s careers?

- Describe your career path and top success.

- Where the oil and gas market is going and what should young energy professionals do?

- What’s the best advice you could give to young energy professionals when your industry is facing challenges?

Diversifying supply routes to Europe  SponsorGold sponsor

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

A key part of ensuring secure and affordable supplies of energy to Europe involves diversifying supply routes. This includes identifying and building new routes that decrease the dependence of EU countries on a single supplier of natural gas and other energy resources. Topics under discussion will be:


- Connecting Caspian gas with new regional opportunities in new geopolitical environment

- Ukraine as a potential future supplier of gas to Europe

- The importance of the southern gas corridor as an alternative supply route

- Should Europe invest in additional LNG terminal capacity?

- How can a Mediterranean gas hub diversify European energy suppliers and routes?

IP Week Briefing: Why social media is a critical resource for the global oil and gas industry? Five observations that may change the way you think about the power of social media content in the energy sector

Thursday, 23 February 2017SponsorSilver sponsor

Social media has quickly carved out a role for itself in the corporate realm, reshaping how companies interact with customers, promote products, engage prospects and build their brands. You may be surprised to learn of the growing role social media is playing for professionals focused on the global oil and gas industry. The answer lies in how we think about social media. If we characterize it as a monolithic entity that includes every available platform, social media quickly becomes too unwieldy and unreliable to be helpful. If we narrow the focus to social media as a source of thousands of on-the-ground resources providing real-time information on events affecting infrastructure and supply globally, however, social media’s value becomes much more apparent. Here are five observations that may change the way you think about the power of social media content in the global oil and gas industry.

Shaping the gas landscape Sponsor Silver sponsor

Thursday, 23 February 2017

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.
