Unlocking New Value Opportunities In The Energy System

The ADIPEC 2021 Strategic Programme will provide attendees with an unparalleled opportunity to gather and gain unique insights into how the energy industry has responded to the challenges of COVID-19, and how it is adapting more broadly in the face of accelerated energy transitions, growing global ambitions for sustainable integrated energy value chains and net-zero emissions.

ADIPEC will gather leaders from industry, government, finance and technology to share perspectives on the fast pace at which the energy landscape is changing and discuss crucial industry topics, such as changing energy demand dynamics, the impact of new technology, shifts in government policy, and the different needs and specific energy solutions that are required to succeed and pivot in the emerging global energy ecosystem. 

Taking place immediately after COP26, ADIPEC 2021 is positioned to be the global forum to discuss the key debates and decisions of the climate meeting, and how they will shape the strategic and policy environment for the energy industry. Focusing on four major themes that will provide insights and answers to the questions facing the energy industry today and, in the years, ahead:

  • New market dynamics in a changing energy world
  • Fueling the future: the new energy agenda
  • Building the energy company of the future: new business models and investment flows
  • Transformational technologies: unlocking the engines of change

A Selection of confirmed speakers

Theme for Monday: New market dynamics in a changing energy world

The oil and gas industry has gone through a tremendous period of volatility as a result of the economic and energy fall-out from COVID-19. The abrupt and steep decline in demand that accompanied the pandemic forced producer states and companies to respond quickly with emergency measures that have only recently begun to unwound. OPEC+ countries have balanced markets through unprecedently large output cuts, and capital spending by oil and gas companies, both government and private sector, has been slashed. These changes have altered the balance of power in energy markets.

The pace of oil and gas demand recovery is still uncertain, and the impact of the pandemic could cause ripple effects for some time to come. In the longer-term, policy changes in Europe and the United States driven by concerns over climate change will also shift market dynamics, creating new pressures for producer countries, and new strategic considerations for international oil and gas companies. The result could be a period of significant volatility in oil and gas markets, as producer countries and companies seek to calibrate investment in hydrocarbons to meet uncertain future demand.

  • What will the oil market outlook be for 2022 and beyond?
  • Will fuel demand ever recover to pre-pandemic levels?
  • What market-management challenges will OPEC+ face?
  • How will policy changes in major consumer regions alter demand patterns in the medium-term?
  • Is the oil and gas industry on the brink of a new “supercycle”?

Theme for Tuesday: Fueling the future: the new energy agenda

Major transformations are underway in the energy sector as governments and international companies focus on delivering cleaner energy solutions. Targets for net-zero emissions are increasingly being set by countries and companies in a range of industries, which is creating powerful momentum for change across the value chain. These pressures are also forcing the energy industry to work more closely with its downstream customers to deliver green solutions, a process that will create new cross-sector collaboration. At the same time, government policies, including new regulations, support for research and development and technological innovation, are increasingly acting to shape the green options that energy companies pursue through. These factors will combine over time to create a new energy ecosystem that will be underpinned by climate concerns and emission-reduction goals, where industry distinctions become increasingly blurred.

  • What are these partnerships of the future? Which countries and companies are leading the way?
  • How are companies adjusting the value chain? What are the innovations that stand out the most?
  • How can governments best support energy transitions? What are the winning models of collaboration with the energy industry?
  • What role does the energy industry has to play in a circular economy? What opportunities does it create for hydrocarbon production?

What policies are needed to support the development of a sustainable hydrogen industry?
Hydrogen Session

Ministerial Hydrogen Panel - ICC Hall

There is a growing consensus that green hydrogen will play a key role in the transition to a lower carbon energy future. However, the progression of green hydrogen, from a niche player to a widespread energy carrier, will require a convergence of enabling policy frameworks, at local, regional and global levels, if it is to command a significant share in the future low carbon global energy system. What policy progress has been made to accelerate the development and implementation of the hydrogen economy in the Middle East, Asia and Europe? How are governments working with industry players and other key stakeholders to encourage the public-private partnerships needed to move hydrogen from niche to mainstream? How should national hydrogen strategies be framed to provide an integrated view of the hydrogen value chain, and establish a supporting governance system and policy framework to promote hydrogen deployment.

Making an impact from within: avoiding the generational gap

Perspectives on Management - Conference Hall B

Among the biggest issues for CEOs is how to attract talent, retain it and develop it, and to create a real culture of inclusivity, empowerment and influence. The oil and gas sector faces particular challenges: fewer people are choosing STEM careers; and the industry is often not regarded as “green” by young professionals. These pressures are prompting companies to rebrand the image of the sector and the opportunities it presents. But it is also driving changes within organisations as they respond to generational shifts and new societal demands.

"By 2040 EVs will account for 75% of global vehicle sales, while fossil fuel cars will start to disappear from the market"

Leadership Debate - Conference Hall B

The debate over the future of transport appears to be shifting significantly in favor of EVs. A number of car manufacturers are committing to ending the production of internal combustion engine vehicles over the next 15 years, and emissions regulations in many developed countries are tightening. But the penetration of EVs still face some challenges in the short-term, including higher costs and charging availability, which creates barriers to the pace at which their market share will grow.

The combination of technology, policy, infrastructure and investment will determine the trajectory of the growth in EV numbers. It will also determine what role hydrocarbons play in the transport sector and the pace at which demand declines. What is the future of mobility?

Theme for Wednesday: Building the energy company of the future: new business models and investment flows

The energy landscape is on the cusp of a period of profound change.  Traditional peer groups are becoming less relevant, as some IOCs rebrand themselves as energy or technology companies.  The pace of portfolio and technology changes may differ from company to company, but the outline of new patterns of investment, and new business models is becoming apparent.  NOCs are facing difficult questions of their own, as they seek to fulfil their energy-security and resource-monetisation mandates while also being forced to consider how much to diversify away from their traditional businesses.  Across the industry, business leaders are being urged to rethink how to attract and maintain a diverse workforce.

Securing long-term access to finance and investment will be a critical factor in shaping the decision-making of both IOCs and NOCs.  Shareholder pressures are already forcing IOCs to respond to climate concerns through more transparent reporting and greater investment in decarbonisation options.  As government-owned entities, NOCs are more shielded from these tensions, but they may nevertheless complicate partnerships with IOCs in the future.  Meanwhile, ESG considerations are becoming a more important factor in determining banks and financial institutions investment decisions, which could increase the cost of capital for hydrocarbon investments and limit the capital available:   

  • How is the traditional IOC business model changing? Is the shift to becoming an IEC inevitable?
  • What are the options for NOCs in the energy transition?
  • How can companies attract a diverse and inclusive workforce?
  • How are leaders creating a “green culture” within their organisations?
  • How are financing models changing?
  • How are ESG and profitability concerns best balanced?

The NOC of the future: embracing the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition

Insight Interview - ICC Hall

With the world moving towards net-zero, oil and gas companies are shifting their strategies to respond to the challenges and opportunities that energy transitions offer. But not all companies can respond similarly.  NOCs face a different set of challenges as they seek to balance their core mandate of monetising domestic hydrocarbon assets and provide domestic energy security with the demands of a decarbonised world.  These companies provide key revenue flows to their governments and are a central part of their domestic economies.  Consequently, the options available to NOCs may be different from IOCs, and their process of adjustment will not necessarily follow the same course.

Theme for Thursday: Transformational technologies: unlocking the engines of change

Technology will play a crucial role in determining the pace of decarbonisation and whether long-term emissions targets can be met. The history of the energy industry has been shaped by the impact of innovation, deployment and commercialisation of technology. This will continue to be the case, as different decarbonisation solutions are developed across the value chain. What seems unimaginable or uncommercial now may evolve into mainstream solutions, depending on government policy, industry insight and investor demand.

These factors are already shaping energy options and technological choices as countries and companies seek to transform their energy mix and secure their long-term financial interests. New technologies are being deployed to help organisations achieve their clean energy ambitions. Digital solutions to improve operations and enhance profitability; satellite technology to monitor methane emissions real-time; direct air capture technologies that regenerate clean air; the steady advances in carbon capture and sequestration technologies, hydrogen, fuel cells, solar, and wind technologies. How these technologies develop will shape the investment choices of governments and industry executives as they rebalance their portfolios to balance between traditional hydrocarbons and new energy sources. In turn, what they decide will go a long way to shaping which technologies they choose to focus on, and how quickly they are deployed.

  • How are companies and governments addressing decarbonisation challenges? What trends are emerging?
  • What disruptive technologies are on the horizon? How are governments and companies collaborating to accelerate technology development?
  • Is the energy industry investing enough in R&D?
  • Is hydrogen a game-changer for the energy industry?
  • How will digital solutions unlock value and accelerate decarbonisation?
