Panel 1: Frontier Markets



The Next Horizon of Emerging Markets in the Oil and Gas Industry

The continuous global surge in oil and gas demand has driven major and independent oil and gas companies, as well as the industry’s service providers to seek growth in both new geographies and on the frontiers of existing markets. However, this drive for growth has come with risks, including failed exploration campaigns, cost overruns, and regulatory actions. As a result, some investors have urged companies to be more domestically focused, or to spin off their international businesses entirely. The panelists will discuss their views on investing in frontier markets, which markets they see as most promising, which ones are less so, and how will this evolve over the coming years.

Panel 2: Unconventionals



After the Revolution: The New Reality of Unconventional Oil and Gas

The development of unconventional oil and gas resources in the US has revolutionized the domestic energy industry. With shale gas accounting for almost half of domestic gas production, and tight oil having contributed to a doubling of domestic oil output, we have already witnessed a transformation of the entire energy value chain. This panel will look beyond the status quo and explore the next phase of the impact on macro and micro levels. Have recent studies on fracking put the safety debate to rest or just delayed it? Is the return of manufacturing jobs to the US reality or wishful thinking? Where in the world will the revolution strike next? Will the global impact on energy prices defeat the economics of domestic production?

Panel 3: New Technologies in O&G



How Innovation is Handling Energy’s Economic and Environmental Challenges

Technological innovation over the past decade has facilitated the exploration and production of previously inaccessible fields. In particular, hydraulic fracturing has enabled the unlocking of massive reserves of shale oil and gas and innovation in offshore technology has facilitated exploration in highly challenging, remote environments. In response, technology is also being developed and commercialized to minimize the impact that newly discovered hydrocarbons will have on the environment.

This panel will explore key technological developments in the oil & gas sector and discuss how innovation is addressing energy’s increasing economic and environmental challenges.

Panel 2: Corporate Sustainability



Sustainability & Corporate Decision Making

There is a lot of talk about corporate sustainability as a priority but we still have ‘Directors of Sustainability’ without significant influence. Research and policy institutes still have to lobby hard to convince some businesses to act. How much action still requires regulation vs. altruism vs. business realities? And therefore what is the role of the regulators and lobbyists? How integrated are sustainability considerations with mainstream strategy development? Where do responsibilities end? E.g., corporate operations vs. full operations vs. supply chain (how far down supply chain?) What is the role of third party research and policy groups to partner with corporations to advance sustainable business practices? What sort of partnerships seem to make sense across triple bottom line interventions?
