The global lockdown, free-falling oil prices, slumps in demand and lack of storage capacity have impacted all verticals of the world’s economy. Future demand of oil and gas products will depend largely on the effectiveness of current government policies and stimulus plans to encourage economic activity until an effective vaccine is ready. As a major industry driving global markets and international trade, what are the implications of this pandemic on the energy industry and what does the future hold?

Discussion and talking points:

  • Winners and losers of the price fall – How are countries gaining or losing the battle against the unprecedented fall in oil price?
  • With less revenue to play with, how are oil & gas companies restructuring their finances to mitigate losses?
  • How does COVID-19 affect the carbon footprint and clean energy transition plans of various nations?
  • What is the impact of the price fall on nations that rely on hydrocarbon revenues?
  • Force majeure: Mitigating project delays and payment obligations during and after the pandemic
  • Will oil & gas assets still look enticing to potential investors or acquirers?

Attendee insights:

A must attend webinar for oil & gas leaders, CEOs, CFOs, policy makers, economists, investment bankers and other senior executives to understand the future investment prospects in the energy industry and how it would shape up during the course of the pandemic.
