Geopolitics of today: how the energy industry is navigating through change

Ministerial Panel

Session Location: ICC Hall

To say that geopolitical uncertainty has become the key theme of 2022 is a massive understatement. Combined with slow economic recovery, rising inflation and supply chain challenges—all on a global scale—this moment in time offers both challenges and opportunities to the energy industry. Growing concerns regarding energy security and market stability have led governments to seek different sources of energy supply whilst trying to manage the short-term realities created by the global economic downturn. 

Attendee insights:

Gain insights into how the global energy system will navigate geopolitical uncertainty over the next 12 months. Understand how OPEC+ responses to supply constraints will evolve in 2023 and hear how global ministers will be revising energy policy to deal with both the short-term impacts of high energy prices along with the need to navigate towards net-zero energy ambitions.

The new business and energy portfolio model: managing geopolitical uncertainty and the energy transition

Strategic Panel

Session Location: ICC Hall

At a time when fossil fuels are required to meet growing demand and ensure market stability, innovative approaches will be necessary to future proof operations, meet rising investor pressure for returns, and the growing expectation from society to reach commitments to a net-zero world. International oil companies (IOCs) and integrated energy companies (IECs) are shifting their strategies to become more sustainable and proactively use every molecule produced. The urgent task to balance portfolios in the energy transition will determine future strategies and create new business models.

Attendee insights:

Gain a better understanding of the different approaches IOCs, NOCs and service companies are taking today, both to accommodate short-term security mandates and transition their organisations over the next 10 years.

Beyond the energy shock: the new map of energy, climate, and the clash of nations

Leadership Interview

Session Location: Conference Room B

World energy markets are in upheaval. The global oil and natural gas markets are fractured.  What comes next?   A global energy crisis has combined with a geopolitical crisis to overturn the maps -- of the flows of oil and gas, the relationships that define the industry, and indeed the mental maps of how we think about the future.  The amnesia about energy security has ended, forcing a painful reassessment of investment priorities and the dynamics of the energy transition.

The emerging new North-South Divide is forcing a debate about the balance between poverty alleviation and economic growth, on one side, and climate objectives on the other.  A new alarm is arising about the adequacy of copper and the other minerals that constitute the new supply chains for net zero emissions.   Will new geopolitical clashes erupt that complicate the geopolitical struggles that are currently disrupting world energy and threatening global stability?

The road to COP27 and COP28

Leadership Interview

Session Location: ICC Hall

As we approach two pivotal Conference of Parties meetings in Egypt and the UAE, global leaders will have to balance the challenges of achieving net-zero targets by 2050 with the need of short-term energy security and affordability This ambition must now accommodate the fundamental challenges of recent months to the existing energy system. Government policies and investments in new low carbon solutions and technologies are setting the pace for change. However, renewable sources of energy cannot immediately replace gas in many economies, highlighting the role of gas as an important bridging fuel to a net-zero ambition.

Transitioning to new energy supply and demand needs: a look into the future

Strategic Panel

Session Location: ICC Hall

Since 2020, organisations have worked to clarify the appropriate energy mix and how to position/compete in a distributed energy system. As oil and gas companies rebalance portfolios to meet today’s energy needs, they are encountering new challenges that will impact how they produce, transport and distribute energy. Focusing on recalibrating investments into renewables and other cleaner energy sources is no longer the only solution, as supply needs are increasing.

Will geopolitical events in Europe accelerate the net-zero agenda or reverse its course?

Perspectives on geopolitics

Session Location: Conference Room B

The EU wants to diversify its energy mix before the end of 2022. To ensure security of supply, some EU countries are considering increasing capacity at their coal-fired plants, which could delay decarbonisation and net-zero agendas for some time to come. How can policy makers ensure that decarbonisation strategies don’t stagnate? How can these geopolitical challenges be turned into opportunities in line with the energy transition? Can further investments in technologies fast track the development and deployment of renewables and other clean energy sources?

If the transition is to be successful, then it is critical to enable optionality in energy sources. What challenges and opportunities does the energy transition present for the oil and gas sectors in today’s shifting energy markets? What is required to produce the energy the world requires while reducing emissions? What capabilities will achieve these ambitions? What partnership models will succeed in the energy transition?

Attendee insights:

A thought-provoking session for attendees looking to understand how international oil companies (IOCs), integrated energy companies (IECs) and national oil companies (NOCs) will decarbonise their operations, create new partnerships and new capabilities to achieve their net-zero goals, whilst continuing to produce and deliver the energy to meet the world’s growing demand.

LNG market dynamics: what does the future hold?

Leadership Interview

Session Location: Conference Room B

The liquified natural gas (LNG) sector has experienced major volatility over the past few years. What is the supply and demand outlook for the LNG industry? With rising demand for LNG exports straining the US supply, will projected margins be sufficient to provide an incentive for new FIDs? Even if the economics look good, most new LNG developments will still require the backing of long-term contracts. Will the renewed interest in long-term contracts from both Asian and European buyers hold?

How consumer trends and behaviours are accelerating the need to decarbonise the energy value chain

Expert Session

Session Location: Conference Room B

Today’s consumers are well informed with clearly articulated agendas, strategically deciding how they consume energy. Energy markets are constantly evolving due to extraordinary technology innovation, fast-paced energy transition, the increased usage of electric vehicles, and a series of global crises that impact energy prices and consumer trends. In addition, business models for energy companies will need to adapt to new consumer trends. Companies will need to effectively communicate emerging value propositions with the new generation of consumers who may be skeptical of sustainability and environmental claims.

 Attendee insights:

Understand consumer expectation trends, how they impact energy companies’ business strategies, and how to position with both consumers and businesses around buying, using and producing energy.
