The New Energy Map

The 40th Oil & Money conference will take place in London on October 8 10, 2019.

This October, senior executives, policy makers, financiers, strategists and experts from the international oil and gas industry gathered in London for the 39th annual Oil & Money Conference: The New Energy MapCo-hosted by The New York Times and Energy Intelligence, the Oil & Money conference has earned a deserved reputation as a forum for frank discussion and stimulating debate on the key issues facing the global petroleum sector. With a program of speakers and panellists including chief executives and government ministers from the world’s leading oil companies and oil producers, Oil & Money offers high-level networking opportunities with international business leaders and opinion makers. 

The topics discussed at this year’s event included the policy and trade consequences of the US’ return as an energy power, the challenge for rival energy players such as Saudi Arabia and China, the implications of changes in global crude and product trade flows, and the competition for upstream investment between Opec, shale and the deepwater.

​Once again, a special day was devoted to gas and related issues, looking at the changing position of gas in corporate portfolios, long-term threats to gas demand in power generation, what abundant gas feedstock means for the future of petrochemicals, and the challenges facing the world’s biggest gas producer – Russia.
