EY-IRO Oil & Gas Industry Forecast 2018

27 March 2018 | Member meeting

EY & IRO cordially invite you to the Oil & Gas Industry Forecast 2018 event.

Oil prices have gradually gone up in 2017 and have, contrary to what many expected, already been flirting with a low 70. Confidence is also gradually restoring itself, but it is still a buyer’s market and the level of uncertainty remains high. In addition, the more fundamental change to renewable energy is gaining more and more traction. So, what will 2018 bring us?

As usual, Malcolm Dickson from Wood Mackenzie will comment on current and future investments, both in the North Sea as well as from a global perspective. EY will present the results of its latest Dutch Oilfield Services Survey. In view of the strong growth of renewables on- and offshore, new opportunities and challenges arise. René Peters of TNO will explain how system integration between offshore wind and offshore gas can give another boost to the energy transition. Last, but certainly not least, we are extremely proud of having Rob van der Hage of TenneT as key note speaker to present the challenges to create a stable and secure energy distribution system in Europe.

The program will start at 14:00 with coffee. The presentations will start at 14:30, followed by drinks and networking from around 17:00.
