Despite lower oil and gas prices, the business case for E&P activities remains strong. Oil and gas are projected to account for more than 75% of total energy supply in 2035, albeit with shifts in energy demand and supply centers. This session will look at where future demand will come from but will especially address hot spots for production growth and related opportunities for the supply chain. Hot spots include Iran, Myanmar, Mexico and Brazil.

The EU Offshore Safety Directive has been incorporated in national legislations in EU member states. To ensure asset integrity, The Netherlands has established Industry Standard No. 90. The combined facts of ageing infrastructure on one hand and a focus on cost savings on the other make adequate and cost efficient asset integrity management a key concern. This session, organized in cooperation with NOGEPA, will look at the implementation of new industry standards, including Standard 48 on Independent Verification Management and Standard 49 on Safety and Environmental Critical Elements (SECE) Verification.
