Update March 11, 2020: We regret to inform that we have today decided to cancel the upcoming Oil & Finance conference due to the “force majeure” situation connected to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus world wide.
Many of the attendees, both speakers and delegates, have communicated travel restrictions and abandonment from attending any public events. It is therefore not possible to uphold the conference in addition to our consideration for everyone’s health and safety.
Please accept our sincere appologies!
Oil & Finance Conference in Oslo, 18 – 19 March 2020
– “Is the climate changing for fossil fuel investments?”
The climate is changing. This in turn is colouring the political debate around the oil and gas industry in general and the regulatory framework specifically. Investors are also getting increasingly concerned with the environmental profile of their investments. ESG, an abbreviation rarely used only a few years back, is currently on everybody’s lips.
In the midst of this, oil companies are making investment decisions for projects with a long time horizon. Some companies are talking about carbon neutrality, but for the vast majority of oil companies the main strategy is still to find, develop and produce hydrocarbons as cheaply and efficiently as possible. Will the behaviour of oil companies change going forward and how is the public opinion affecting the capital flowing into the business? Is the climate indeed changing for investments in the oil & gas industry?
Against this backdrop we will among other things get the perspectives of industry heavyweights like Philip Lambert and Maria Moræus Hansen as well as an update on the North Sea M&A market and the most recent developments in the bank and bond markets.
In a pleasant environment at Lysebu, the 2020 Oil & Finance conference also offers you plenty of opportunity for networking.
