Building supply chain for the future

Ministerial session

Ensuring resilient, reliable, and sustainable supply chains across the energy value chain has become increasingly important. This has created two possible pathways for future progress: moving from global to regional supply chains and ensuring a more diversified and globally responsible supply chain system. Identifying the right balance between these two options is crucial for ensuring energy security, affordability, and reliability. This will pave the way for new strategic supply chain options and energy-related infrastructure.

Attendee insights: A pertinent session exploring the decoupling of the global trade system.

Price and supply volatility – addressing global energy security needs

Breakthrough session

The immediate consequence of energy shortfalls and high prices has resulted in a need for policy measures and direct government intervention to drive energy security, tackle affordability, and accelerate access to sustainable energy sources. This highlights the consequences of underinvestment in the hydrocarbons sector over the last five years, and the need to reverse the trend of restricting investment in new E&P activities. Optionality in energy sources is critical for a successful transition.

Attendee insights: Energy ministers take the stage to consider issues surrounding energy prices, supply, and security.

Pipeline for transition: Natural gas a necessary solution

Leadership panel

Natural gas is considered a crucial component in reducing emissions and satisfying energy demand. It is viewed as a cleaner fuel that can help the world transition to more sustainable forms of energy. Developing countries have been investing in natural gas infrastructure, such as pipelines and LNG terminals, but high gas prices could jeopardize its role in these economies. This raises questions about how markets will address this risk, and what India will do to counter the impact of high gas prices on its path to becoming a gas-based economy.

Attendee insights: Gas and LNG leaders talk about existing and planned gas infrastructure and the interventions required to make Gas and LNG a source for a smart energy transition.

The importance of continued investment in E&P

Leadership panel

Demand for oil and gas has rebounded rapidly to meet rising energy demand in the face of energy supply shortages. However, global investment recovery in E&P is yet to keep pace. Evolving investor demands, increased emissions expectations, price volatility and energy transition plans continue to present challenges. Continued upstream investment is required in the long-term to meet demand forecasts and insufficient upstream investment would result in more price volatility and spur adverse economic consequences.

Adapting to an uncertain future: reshaping of global partnerships

Ministerial session

In the last three years the natural gas markets have faced significant volatility from the lows of 2020 to the elevated prices of 2022. Forecasts project tight market for at least the next two to five years. Buyers face uncertainties with regard to reliability of supply and pricing, raising questions on role of gas in their future energy portfolio. Suppliers too face risk of slowing economy and accelerated transition away from gas. A variety of strategic partnerships are possible between buyers and suppliers that overcome these uncertainties and could lead to game changing outcomes for industry and countries.

Attendee insights: Global ministers and leaders discuss how the current uncertainties will give rise to a new world and change of natural gas trade flows.

The road to a cleaner grid: decarbonisation and energy diversification for the power and utilities industry

It is important to strike a balance between both energy security and decarbonisation at the same time and there is a clearer sense of the technologies that will need to be fast tracked to make that happen. Areas of grid-scale electricity, green hydrogen, biofuels, carbon capture, geothermal energy, nuclear and large-scale battery storage among others are on focus and a sustainable roadmap to a clean baseload is critical.

Future mobility and challenges of the present

Leadership panel

The mobility market will require new thinking, innovation, and systemic transformation to meet net-zero ambitions while delivering energy and mobility advances for the global economy. Mobility transition will create opportunities for players across the energy value chain, particularly in the form of new partnerships. Organisations and innovators will need to identify opportunities optimal for them, and how new partnerships can increase impact and success. Policy makers must consider how to best guide the evolution of electric vehicles (EVs) and mobility service companies as well the investment in the infrastructure required.

Attendee insights: Hear about the future of mobility, its impacts on the existing energy landscape, and emerging partnerships as both industries transition to a low-carbon future.
