The downstream oil and gas sector is undergoing a seismic shift. Long term demand declines, electrification and an evolving energy mix, and the growing importance of providing platform-led consumer solutions are driving the need for business model transformations across the industry. Those that are able to adapt with pace, understand how to serve customer ‘beyond the commodity’, and partner effectively to do so will be best placed to not only survive, but achieve profitable growth
