Briefing: Accelerating the energy transition with digital cross-industry energy ecosystems

Tuesday 25th February

Climate impacts, technological advances, public discussion and regulatory interventions are coalescing to offer unprecedented challenges and opportunities to old and new players in the energy industry. The oil and gas, energy and utilities, automotive, and information and communications technology industries are positioning themselves to compete in a rapidly shifting energy market. As a result of the energy transition, the shape and mission of these increasingly connected industries might fundamentally change, and new energy industry leaders might arise. The energy leaders of the future need to deploy market strategies that decarbonise and digital capabilities that create new energy ecosystems to make the best use of technological advances. These leaders will break down traditional industry boundaries and create new revenue models. The asset and capital-intensive nature of the energy sector, the complexities in running a network-based business, and the uncertainties that come with rapid technology evolution as well as uncertain energy choices at consumers, business and governments level provides leaders who are able to manage the risks of change a potentially large competitive advantage.

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

Wednesday 26th February

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.

Briefing: Energy companies’ perspectives: balancing the need for continued revenues in the face of climate change

Wednesday 26th February

In late 2019 Amphora conducted a survey targeting nearly 1000 oil companies from a broad cross section of producers, refiners and traders, on how they plan to operate in the following decade. Targeting companies that supply African and Asian markets, the survey highlights the varying energy transition expected depending on a country’s economic development. As a result of abundant oil reserves, lowering costs of infrastructure for LNG and alternative sources of trade finance, the survey findings conclude that we are unlikely to see peak consumption of oil before 2040, and that oil suppliers need to remain at the leading edge of supply chain infrastructure development during the transition. The presentation will share key insights gathered from our survey including how oil companies are becoming increasingly self-reliant for funding, rather than relying on an increasingly cautious capital market. We will also discuss how companies are securing new supply routes into developing nations - often at odds with the narrative of developed economies - and the challenges this poses.

Exploring low emission pathways for transport

Thursday 27th February

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.

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:

“Best panel discussion at a young professionals networking event”
“Excellent evening of discussion”
“Great opportunity to meet senior industry leaders”
“I learned more about the industry and what is developing”
“I have a clearer view of what I want to do next”
