Energy Aspects Oil Markets Outlook
OPEC+ roundtable. OPEC's challenge: an unmanageable market?
Our OPEC panel will provide a unique perspective on global supply and demand from the eyes of some of the largest OPEC producers and major non-OPEC suppliers. Their outlook will be crucial to understanding the potential pivot points for global supply and for prices in the months and years ahead.
Asia demand/refining roundtable – Demanding times: Outlook for Asian refining
A panel focussing on the near- and medium-term outlook for oil products demand and the industry which must meet it. This panel will feature major downstream suppliers. Changing consumption patterns due to slowing economic growth, environmental restrictions—both maritime and land-based—and shifting trade allegiances will be addressed in detail, along with how refiners plan to approach them.
Financials roundtable - Is oil investible?
This panel will address the ongoing volatility in oil and energy markets, from the perspective of major trading houses, hedge funds and investors.
Oil & gas producers roundtable - Short-cycle, short-sighted?
A panel focussing on how oil and gas producers will continue to adjust to the historic volatility in flat prices and spreads, and whether they can balance near-term investor needs with the flexibility needed to meet swings in supply-demand balances over the medium- to longer-term.

Fireside chat with tech speakers and Energy Aspects presenter
The technology panel will delve into the scale, pace and potential of emerging technologies including batteries and transportation (led by electric vehicles), and their impact on petroleum demand. We are compiling a group consisting of leading transportation providers, such as ride-share companies and automotive producers, energy suppliers and individuals at the forefront of emerging technology research.
IMO 2020 - Dirty to clean
We detail how next year's transition to low-sulphur fuel oil in shipping will impact global refining and supply patterns. This shift comes amid the ongoing power sector transition from oil to gas and LNG, led by the Middle East, Mexico and Asia. Global gas demand is also buoyed by a move away from dirtier coal to gas in major Asian importing nations, which will limit the uptake of cheaper fuel oil after IMO 2020 rules hit.
All eggs in the China basket? - Tilting the LNG market focus
The panel on global gas will focus on the evolution of the short- and medium-term gas and LNG markets, including: existing and prospective suppliers; the shift in demand focus from conventional Asian importers to the growth of both China and smaller consumers; and pricing implications of all of the above. It will feature key executives from liquefaction owners and developers, as well as leading consumers and market participants, including portfolio suppliers and trading houses.
