The World Economic Forum’s fifth report highlighted the acceleration of the global energy transition underway in how energy is produced, consumed and distributed. As the future energy landscape evolves at differing paces across the world, consumers are increasingly driving the decisions on which energy sources they want.
For the oil and gas industry to fully embrace the opportunities in this rapidly evolving energy landscape and underpin their future economic survival, it must ensure their business models can respond quickly to rapidly changing market conditions.
This session will focus on future trends of the oil and gas industry, and what is required by companies to ensure they are able to survive and thrive in the future energy landscape.

Breakfast briefing: Energy Outlookin partnership with BP

Wednesday, 21 February 2018

The global energy landscape is changing. The 2018 BP Energy Outlook will set out a base case outlining the ‘most likely’ path for global energy markets until 2035, based on assumptions and judgements about future changes in policy, technology and the economy, as well as developing alternative cases to explore key uncertainties.
This one-hour breakfast briefing, followed by a moderated discussion, will give delegates an opportunity to understand some of the key factors shaping energy markets over the  next 20 years, including the key risks and uncertainties.
Refreshments will be provided and delegates must pre-register in advance.

The drive towards a low carbon future

Wednesday, 21 February 2018
Meeting future energy needs, whilst also tackling climate change, are grave challenges facing the energy sector now and for decades to come.
With countries such as the UK, France and China announcing the end of sales of new petrol and diesel cars, should the oil and gas industry be responding to potential ‘peak demand’ and focussing more closely on diversification?
This session will review the current challenges and potential opportunities of meeting our global decarbonisation targets, as well as exploring the vital role the oil and gas industry must play at the heart of this energy transition.

MENA Energy Summit: Navigating the new normal of global oil & gas trade flows?
Middle East knowledge partner


Thursday, 22 February 2018

Increased shale production will transform the U.S. into one of the world's top oil exporters in just a few years, with estimates that American crude exports will grow to 2.25 million barrels a day by 2020, a four-fold increase from 2016.


The boom would put the U.S. in roughly the same league as major oil exporters including the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait. The major increase in supply would further undermine the strength of OPEC, which was exporting an average of 25 million barrels a day in 2016. Meanwhile the European and Asian gas markets are becoming more and more competitive and US exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) will be a major part of this landscape.

Roundtables discussion

Thursday, 22 February 2018
Organised in small boardroom-style groups, the IP Week roundtables offer the opportunity for senior business leaders to come together to discuss experiences and learn in an informal environment.
Each session will last approximately one hour and attendance is by pre-registration.
Organisational learning from incidents: what it means to be an effective learning organisation

Through a lens of safety, the session will explore the latest knowledge around how organisations learn, building on work captured in the EI’s recent Tripod Foundation and Hearts and Minds publications.
Through the roundtable discussion participants will reflect on their own challenges and successes in this process.
Topics include:
* Building a supportive learning environment
* Understanding the skills required to facilitate transformational learning
* Learning and punishment: why an organisational blame culture inhibits learning of system causes

15.45
Opportunities in the petrochemical value chain for the downstream sector

The downstream sector has a long history of adapting to fuel-demand evolution by investing in transforming industrial installations, deploying new technologies and expanding service offerings to wholesalers and consumers.
Refining and marketing have traditionally been the natural path for crude-oil producers striving towards vertical integration, aimed at capturing the full margin along the industry’s entire value chain.
The roundtable discussion will consider how the downstream sector can increase its economic output through petrochemical value chains.
Topics includes:
* Recognising the main types of petrochemicals and their uses for the downstream sector
* How can the petrochemical industry add value to the downstream sector?
* What are the key market trends in the petrochemical industry?

Tomorrow's Energy Leaders: Professional Development Programme
