Digi-OE: the merger that every energy company should do
18 December 2019

Over the last few decades, operational excellence (OE) programmes have been an important way that oil and gas companies have sought to enhance their performance. Such programmes, built on the foundations of process excellence techniques such as Lean and Six Sigma, whipped around organisations, optimising processes and taking out cost. But, despite some success, most did not realise the full performance potential of their assets and operations. 

2020 Fundamentals Weaker As Prices Set To Fall
9 December 2019

Fears of a slowing global economy, rising trade tensions and recession risks have been a large part of the demand narrative this year, but recent indicators led us to believe global growth will stabilise in the coming quarters. The weaker pricing we see stems from the supply side, as Opec curtailment proves insufficient to offset rising non-Opec supply

The Emerging Price Offerings from Second Wave U.S LNG Projects: Perspectives from Sellers and Buyers
17 September 2019
With the LNG market in a state of rapid transition, the future is shrouded in considerable uncertainty, but the expectation is that commoditization and liquidity will continue to grow as the industry matures – and that both firstwave and second-wave U.S. LNG export projects will help drive these trends. So, how much capacity can we realistically expect from the second wave? Download this 20-page report for more insight into the future of the LNG Market.
Competition, Commoditisation & Consolidation
17 September 2019
How will M&A activity re-shape the fast-growing LNG business? This report sets out to answer the question: “What might the LNG industry look like in five years and ten years from now?” In particular, how is it likely to be re-shaped by corporate activity – such as mergers and acquisitions (M&A) – as the growing number of players seek to maximise value by adapting to the forces re-shaping the industry? These forces can be grouped into three categories: competition, commoditisation and consolidation
Floating Innovation
5 August 2019
The use of floating production storage and offloading units (FPSOs) has continued into the first quarter of 2019 – but how long this wave of demand lasts will depend on the speed of innovation in the sector. The transition from oil and gas to renewables, as well as the fast development of shale in the US, may mean that the cost pressure on oil will not ease in the short to medium term. The ability of FPSOs to achieve cost reductions will therefore be critical to the success or viability of certain fields. The last 30 FPSO-based projects’ final investment decisions (FIDs) announced included 14 units with a breakeven below $50/bl, 15 units between $50/bl and $70/bl and three units in excess of $70/bl.
Meeting Europe’s Natural Gas Infrastructure Challenge: Opportunities and Outlook 2020
5 December 2019

In this webcast, the Energy Web Atlas Market Analyst for Global Data Solutions will examine the implications for managing the supply of natural gas through Europe to consumers. He will discuss the potential of capital investments and identify areas where a conflux of issues may lead to a gas transmission system shortfall. He will compare regional natural gas transmission capacity and import facility capacities to the prospects of domestic supply and growing demand centers. And finally, he will look at areas that require additional investment by midstream operators and the implications for the broader gas dynamics of Europe.

Burning Themes in Oil and Gas
24 September 2019

The Oil and Gas Industry is being reshaped by changes to the fundamentals of supply and demand. Government policy, corporate strategy, and consumer behaviour have the potential to re-shape the energy mix in ways that are only just taking shape today. This creates new opportunities and new challenges for the hydrocarbons sector. Technology and innovation drove the 180 degree change in narrative from one of peak oil to one of excess supply. What are the new forces driving change in demand? And what will that demand look like in the future?

Fitch Solutions' Oil and Gas senior analysts will explain in this one hour webinar, how their 10 year oil price forecast reflects the anticipated changes heralded for the Oil and Gas markets; what is within scope for the coming decade and what is more long term and therefore subject to more uncertainty.

Accelerate Digital Transformation with End-to-End Digital Twin and Integrated Power and Process
15 May 2019

This webcast will explore how digital transformation concepts can be leveraged to drive profitability through new levels of operational efficiency.

Rethinking traditional approaches when it comes to design, implementation and operation of assets results in faster time to production, safely and securely. The integration of asset data intelligence includes both the power and process of the plant from the early design of a digital twin into a unified simulation platform, driving total expenditure improvements across the enterprise lifecycle, from FEED to operations to supply chain and even into end of life.

Watch this webcast to find out how an integrated power and process approach improves accuracy, eliminating redundancy, and creating new insights that improve asset performance and profitability.

Waves of Change: Charting the Energy Future
28 November 2019

For nearly forty years, CERAWeek has provided an integrated framework for understanding what’s ahead for global energy markets, geopolitics, and technology. Some of the greatest minds from across the energy spectrum gather to share insight on the nature and pace of change shaping the future of the energy realm. Over 5,500 delegates from more than 85 countries participated in CERAWeek 2019.

This year’s theme: Waves of Change: Charting the Energy Future has special resonance in the oil and gas industries as we experience an unprecedented transformation of the global energy system. Strategic confrontations and trade wars; energy demands in a world of slower growth; disruptive technologies, digitalization, clean tech and new energy pathways; globalization of natural gas and the new wave of LNG; inter-fuel competitions; and climate concerns are forcing decisions and policy change. How will you navigate these changes?

Gain insights, engage with industry experts and peers at the world’s premier energy conference 9-13 March 2020 in Houston. Find a diversity of perspective and experiences at CERAWeek 2020.
