Challenges and developments of the Oil and Gas industry

Submission deadline – February 1st 2015 (earlier submissions will receive an immediate editor’s response and can be published in earlier issues)

A new chapter in the energy renaissance is starting to emerge – one focused on the effective execution of capital projects, which are often further from shore, deeper and more complex; at the same time as maximising the return from mature offshore assets and planning for decommissioning. As the size and complexity of capital projects grows, the ability to effectively execute, often on multiple large projects, becomes a critical competency for many companies. 2015 and 2016 will be critical years for many companies as they attempt to successfully deliver major capital projects. In many cases, the result of the projects will significantly influence their stock price, as well as their liquidity.

To be ready for a promising and yet challenging future, oil and gas companies need to be thoughtful about the following challenges: financing and capital effectiveness, regulatory uncertainty, skills shortage, costs of operation optimisation.
