2021 Explore: Energy - Navigating Success in the Upstream Evolution
Climate change discussions are shaping the energy transition. The world is responding to the challenge by planning transformational change. Pressures by four sets of factors: governments, companies, shareholders/NGOs and the financial sector are the main drivers.
The focus of 2021 Explore: Energy is to provide a range of perspectives on how certain factors will respond to this transformational change.
In this series of virtual sessions, we will cover 5 main topics about this theme:
Session 1: Brazil's Pre-Salt Play
The potential is huge - how big is the window of opportunity?
The Santos and Campos Basins lie on Brazil's Atlantic margin, containing a Cretaceous Aptian salt layer that divides the geology into pre- and post-salt petroleum play systems. This Webinar will take an in-depth "deep dive" look at the pre-salt Cretaceous carbonate play.
Session 2: Eastern Mediterranean's Prolific Gas Basins
The race to monetize the molecules
This session will take an in-depth "deep dive" look at the clastic and carbonate play potential across the five key basins, and explain the opportunities and challenges that arise in the race to monetize the Region's gas molecules.
Session 3: Haynesville Answers the LNG Demand Call
Since 2018, the Haynesville has seen a revival the likes of which US plays have never experienced. Going from 4 bcf/d to over 10, private operators have shown an amazing ability to drive production growth in the face of low natural gas prices. The outlook for the play is promising, with LNG demand providing ample justification for these growth-oriented (rather than cash-flow) producers to answer the call.
IHS Markit experts will discuss the broader natural gas demand outlook, the play's inventory and productivity expectations, and how private companies are delivering volumes for the global market.
Session 4: Upstream in Transition: Hard Choices and Trade-offs
Energy transition is putting pressure on upstream oil and gas to alter their strategies, lower their emissions and ultimately compete on carbon. This session will explore key questions investors are asking and how the oil and gas is responding:
- What does energy transformation mean for the upstream?
- What are some of the key misconceptions or misunderstanding around upstream oil and gas GHG emissions?
- What are some of the steps companies are taking to respond to changing market pressures?
Session 5: Analytics - Powering the New Energy Future
The perfect storm of an accelerated energy transition, increased data quantities and departing industry expertise means we need some real power in our corner. That is increasingly coming in the form of advanced analytics that can help sift through huge amounts of information to get decision makers the answers they need. In this session we'll explore how that technology is evolving and see some very relevant examples of it in action.
