Training for Tomorrow
22 June 2020

Operator error is common and expensive. Chemical plants lose more than $20 billion annually from human error and insufficient knowledge. Trends in the workforce and the workplace are likely to exacerbate the problem. To overcome this challenge, operating companies need to shift their cultures from a training-centered, box-checking culture to a learning-centered, results-driven culture. The shift will reveal experiential, simulationbased learning as the most effective way to give your workforce the situational awareness needed to make the right choice in every scenario.

Cloud technology makes experiential learning accessible and practical for any organization. As experts in cloudbased operator training simulators (Cloud OTS) for every stage of operations, AVEVA is already helping forward-looking companies change their cultures and redefine training for tomorrow

Shale oil breakeven prices
12 May 2020

This paper examines published estimates of shale oil breakeven prices, contrasts the quoted breakeven price with industry performance over the period and investigates the disconnect between published breakeven prices and actual breakeven prices at the corporate level.

Energy Transition Review
5 May 2020
The energy transition will be a multi-faceted process with each contributing energy source offering enormous potential but often bringing new challenges. The oil and gas sector is rapidly improving efficiency and reducing its carbon footprint, but can this be done around the world at reasonable cost? The boom in renewables continues apace, across ever more markets around the world, but requires peak demand support and smart grid management. And green hydrogen potentially offers a carbon-neutral high energy density fuel, but can it be cost competitive at scale? In this report, industry experts identify problems and present potential solutions.
Private Equity's Upstream journey
31 March 2020
Private equity interest in the E&P industry soared in the wake of the 2014 oil price crash. However, renewed appetite for upstream assets was not only predicated on exploiting commodity cycles. Private equity spotted an opportunity when patchy performance and escalating ESG concerns meant publicly listed investors turned their back on mature basins. While it was hype around the shale revolution that first attracted attention, an alternative strategy quickly emerged. In this report, we follow private equity’s upstream journey and consider whether this latest round of E&P investment will ultimately deliver on its promise.
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.
Part 2: Creating a Sustainable Hydrogen Supply Chain
13 July 2020

Production of low or zero-carbon hydrogen on an industrial scale needs to be built in tandem with the emerging sources of demand across the economy. The ultimate goal is to be able to create hydrogen on a cost-competitive basis with grey hydrogen, which uses a carbon-intensive methane steam reforming process and currently dominates industrial supply, as well as conventional fuels/sources for power generation. 

The panel will discuss the viability of different sources of hydrogen supply, energy storage solutions and renewable power generation, including from wind farms. It will consider recent technological developments and remaining challenges, as well as the economic and legal foundations necessary to facilitate its widespread adoption.

Part 1: Decarbonising the Economy with Hydrogen
6 July 2020

The widespread application of hydrogen solutions will be an essential contributor to countries being able to achieve their carbon-emission reduction commitments under the Paris Agreement. Hydrogen has vast potential as a versatile fuel that can be applied to a wide variety of sectors, from heavy industry to urban settings, and is particularly useful in sectors unsuitable for electrification.

The panel will discuss cutting-edge developments in creating profitable uses for hydrogen, moving towards commercial applications that decarbonise a range of specific sectors without the need for government support.
