ADIPEC Roundtable

November 1, 12:00 - 13:30
The role of oil and gas in a new energy world: energy security, climate response, industry innovation and future supply perspectives
Moderated by Oliver Wyman

The energy industry - especially oil and gas - influences and shapes economies at global, regional, national and local levels. This is not just true of facilitating energy supply to meet energy demand but also through business development, climate impact, employment growth, investment influence and more.

Today’s rapidly evolving energy landscape requires an equal response - one that demands optionality in supply - from the energy industry and policymakers to evolve the way the world produces, consumes and trades energy. This needs to be achieved while also addressing current demand, net-zero ambitions and a just energy transition. It raises questions on projections for future oil and gas demand, the future role of OPEC+ and investment today in setting the stage for a secure and sustainable future.

This roundtable will focus on energy security, affordability, and sustainability – exploring questions such as:

  1. Are we in an energy transition or revolution? And what are the consequences of inflation and volatility on countries, their economies, stability and security globally?
  2. What changes need to happen so that we can come to a debate that takes opportunities to become greener, and economic and stability trade-offs, into account?
  3. What is the role of oil and gas in the future? And what role does the Middle East and Africa play towards a greener future?

Moderator: Andrew Horncastle, Head of Energy and Natural Resources, IMEA, Oliver Wyman
