Don't Call It a Comeback: Oil's Ongoing Role In the Energy Transition
Don't Call It a Comeback: Oil's Ongoing Role In the Energy Transition
This event covers the following:
Oil & Gas Upstream

COVID has been referred to as an 'accelerator', immediately putting people and entire industries face-to-face with trends that otherwise would have taken 5 to 10 years to emerge fully.

The upstream industry is a prime example. It was already pivoting into the Energy Transition well before the pandemic, but the historic demand destruction operators experienced in early 2020 gave new urgency to strategy execution.

Combined with growing concern over climate change, it would be easy to assume that oil is in its twilight phase, yet in reality this commodity has a substantial role to play in the coming decades.
