Reuters: Future of Oil & Gas 2021

2021 & Beyond: More Energy, Less Carbon
In a pre-pandemic world, upstream O&G’s short and long-term futures were largely synonymous; with the former simply informing the latter. Now, with supermajor E&Ps shifting course into a net zero future, there is major disparity in what the next few years hold for the industry compared with the next few decades.
This discord is based on a dual challenge that the entire industry must face: How do we meet growing global energy demand and simultaneously reduce carbon emissions in the hope for a more sustainable future?
In 2021 alone the IEA expects:
- Global energy demand to increase by 4.6%.
- Carbon emissions to jump by 1.5 billion metric tons
Future of Oil & Gas 2021 offers a full spectrum of responses to this challenge from supermajor operators to independents; from oilfield service companies to global tech providers; from consultants to governors.
