The global energy industry is in a state of profound transformation.
Global oil demand is forecast to rise by some one million barrels per day for the next 10 years, which will require production capacity equivalent to a new Saudi Arabia by 2020. At the same time, oil and gas production from existing fields is expected to decline steadily, requiring new investments to ensure that recovery rates meet or exceed historical norms. Demand for electricity and nuclear energy sources is also rising considerably, resulting in the construction of new power plants around the world. All the while climate change discussions are at the top of the agenda for many governments and international agencies, the sources of global investment capital are shifting and new energy technologies are emerging, causing a rebalancing of strategic investment decisions amongst coal, natural gas, nuclear and renewables. The management and leadership opportunities and challenges facing the industry are significant.
