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

Turn Unplanned Downtime Into Planned Downtime
20 November 2019

Unplanned downtime has wide-ranging impacts that affect more than just a plant’s productivity and profitability. Forced shutdowns also have a major impact on plant and personnel safety, as well as greenhouse gas emissions and environmental compliance. But what if you could actually plan for downtime?

In this paper, learn how advances in machine learning and predictive analytics are eliminating the surprise of unplanned downtime—enabling companies to minimise the most dangerous conditions, reduce the amount of gases released into the environment, and improve productivity and profitability.

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.

CERA Week 2020
28 November 2019

In 1983, Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA) was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts by Daniel Yergin and James Rosenfield. The energy research and consulting firm quickly became known for its critical knowledge and independent analysis on energy markets, geopolitics, industry trends, technology and strategy.

Each year, CERA clients gathered for a few days in Houston, Texas to attend the executive conference where they gained insight into the energy future while connecting with their peers. Over time, the program was expanded to five days of informative sessions and networking opportunities—and named CERAWeek.

More than three decades later, CERAWeek by IHS Markit has become the world’s premier energy event. The conference is distinctive in the extraordinary depth and breadth of its content and the quality of the dialogue among participants.
