How Europe's gas industry can decarbonise and transform energy power sectors
24 June 2019

With a new level of urgency now underpinning discussions around the medium and longer-term outlook for the European gas market, Gastech Insights asked 9 market experts - “How can Europe's gas industry decarbonise and transform the energy power sectors?” - ahead of 2019's European Annual Gas Conference (EAGC) in Paris 5-7 November.

The new and improved EAGC is back for 2019. Join us to discover more about the emerging pathways for gas and LNG in the decarbonising European energy landscape. 

Today's investment is tomorrow's income
13 February 2019

As established operators look to divest their "brown-field" assets, new operators are jumping at the opportunity to purchase and extend the life of these fields. Deals in the UK sector alone surpassed $8 billion in 2017. However, purchasing an asset and taking on operatorship is a complex process that requires robust due-diligence and a well-considered transition plan to ensure that production goals are achieved.

Download our latest guide which identifies the challenges, risks and solutions to help you deliver a successful asset transfer project. You'll be given a full run down of what's required for a successful transition plan, from regulatory compliance, people and management systems to reservoir management, asset integrity and decommissioning liability.

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.
Global LNG Report 2019: A Review of Demand, Supply and Financing Issues
27 February 2019
Why 2019 will be pivotal for new LNG supply and markets. DLA Piper's "Global LNG Report 2019: a review of demand, supply and financing issues" concludes that we are likely to see several new LNG supply projects launched this year, following the recent Golden Pass final investment decision (FID). However, while there is a long list of individually credible projects that could reach FID - with total liquefaction capacity of over 230 million tonnes/year - there is room in the market for only a fraction of them. This report explores the below key questions: • Will 2019 see the expected stampede to sanction new supply projects? • What will be the respective roles of natural gas and LNG in a decarbonising world? • As LNG supply continues its strong growth, where are the key markets? • How sustainable is China's spectacular LNG import growth?

The changing corporate landscape of the North Sea
3 December 2018
The corporate landscape in the UK North Sea has been substantially reinvigorated since the collapse in oil prices, with a lot of new faces as well as some of the more familiar ones. A new wave of Independent companies has grown its share of production in the UK, more than doubling it from 12pc in 2014 to 30pc today. And in a complete funding turnaround, private equity, which was almost entirely new to the market, currently owns about 14% of total UK production.
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.

Measuring the Importance of Asset Performance Management in your Digital Journey
22 April 2019

Is poor asset performance hampering your overall business performance?

When assets fail to live up to expectations and intended reliability, profit margins suffer and achieving operational excellence can seem out of reach. ARC Advisory Group has designed a questionnaire to better understand how today’s industry leaders are implementing Asset Performance Management (APM) initiatives and to compare the effectiveness of the different approaches.

We invite you to participate by completing this survey, which will take 5-10 minutes and form the basis for a webcast where the results will be analysed and shared.
