The Oil & Gas Middle East Forum is a one-day event which will gather experts across the industry to discuss the future of the oil and gas industry. We will hold three panel discussions to explore the most pressing topics facing our industry as we look ahead to a recovery following a historic, turbulent year. Key topics will include cybersecurity challenges and opportunities during and post-coronavirus, the relevance of OPEC in the 2020s, and the energy transition. Coronavirus has grounded people across industries, leaving them working from home. For oil and gas companies, which have extensive digital and physical assets, questions of cybersecurity are constantly arising as cyber threats shift. With the emergence of the US as a major player in the global oil and gas market, and following the market crisis, industry experts will discuss how important the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries will really be in the 2020s.
This workshop included two sessions that covered the links between the U.S. petroleum and natural gas market and the global market. The first session focused on short- to medium-term signposts of market rebalancing. The second session focused on longer-term competition issues in the petroleum and liquefied natural gas (LNG) markets. Discussion questions What are the objectives of OPEC+ (market share, pricing power, fiscal requirements)? Does OPEC strategy shift as Asia becomes more dependent on oil imports? What is the impact of lower investment on the ability of the oil and gas industry to bring production back when demand rebounds (U.S. tight oil and internationally)? How large can the LNG liquefaction market grow?

Many African countries present unique challenges for investors throughout the energy value chain, from regulatory uncertainty and bureaucratic hassles to political unrest. In some areas, physical and cyber attacks are also a possibility, from pirates and vandals to militants. The COVID-19 is sure to present additional challenges for doing business globally, and poses an incredible risk to African countries as the entire continent heads for a recession. How can investors — both domestic and international — navigate these challenges and protect themselves, their employees and their assets? What regulatory environments are investors seeking in a highly competitive environment? High risk can equate to high reward … but also to large losses. What is the right balance of risk moving forward? Speakers: Dr. Sara Vakhshouri, Founder & President, SVB Energy International Shawn Robert Duthie, Managing Director, Inyani Intelligence C. Derek Campbell, CEO of Energy & Natural Resource Security, Inc. Moderators: James Chester, Acting CEO, Africa Oil & Power Caty Hirst, Director of Programming, Africa Oil & Power
