Energy Transition Review
5 May 2020
Sponsor: Norton Rose Fulbright and Schneider Electric

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
Sponsor: Allen and Overy

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
Sponsor: King & Spalding

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
Sponsor: Shearman & Sterling

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
Sponsor: Schneider Electric

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
Sponsor: DLA Piper

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
Sponsor: BMO Capital Markets

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.

The sustainability pivot: energy turns to the future
26 October 2018
Sponsor: Lloyds Bank

The rapidly expanding contribution of renewables to the global grid is causing a financing transition as a reallocation of funds towards cleaner technologies accelerates in capital markets. Take a look at our report into how sustainability is fueling a revolution in the global and UK renewables industries. This report, produced by Petroleum Economist in association with Lloyds Bank, will give you an in-depth understanding of how renewables financing is changing as key technologies mature. You'll also discover how best to prepare as the cost of renewables falls, and as we look towards a world where national and global grid systems become bi-directional.

Offshore brownfields: Planning and development
13 August 2018
Sponsor: Aveva

The big hydrocarbon discoveries make the headlines, but the bread and butter of the oil and gas industry will always be the brownfield sites. Companies are cautiously opening their cheque books and looking for easy returns from long-established and perhaps neglected infrastructure. This paper looks at the hot spots for brownfield investment and changes in approach.
