Carbon Neutral Transition and the New Oil Price Dynamic - The Impact on New Oil and Gas Project Developments
Recorded On: 11/24/2020
Organized by the Asia Chapter
Nicholas Padgalskas, Executive Director, Asia-Pacific Energy, ABN AMRO Bank
Dr. Ed Jankowski, Technical Director, RPS
Moderator: Virginia Markouizou, Head of Downstream Practice, RPS
This webinar brings together two independent parties to discuss aspects of oil & gas development and financing, as the dual impacts of a low oil price dynamic and the carbon neutral transition converge.
With insights from a financial institution and a reserves auditor, the panel discusses critical elements affecting oil price forecasting in this turbulent environment, the impact of reserves reporting through an ESG lens and the earlier changes to PRMS reserves reporting standards, and how these factors ultimately combine to affect project financeability. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the key issues which need to be integrated by consensus to meet investor needs in this new paradigm.
