#Oil17: New World Order

Since the collapse of the oil price in mid-2014, markets watched as the Middle East played a defensive price war, new player Iran flexed its oil producing prowess and Brent’s value dropped 75%. The USenaro repealed a 40-year ban on crude exports, Mexico opened its energy borders for the first time in nearly 80 years and OPEC made the milestone decision to curb oil production rates.

And while the markets watched, thousands lost their jobs, businesses readjusted their spread sheets and a new sector mantra – ‘Doing business lower for longer’ was born. Then, in late 2016, industry leaders slowly started calling bottom and planning their business around a recovered oil price of $55.

But what does all of this mean for oil in 2017?

From the economics to employment, regions to diversification, Energy Voice examines the new world order of oil at this year’s Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) breakfast as we gather the sector experts to discuss what and where next. An expert panel will debate and discuss the research findings at a free breakfast on Tuesday, May 2 at the Hilton Post Oak from 7.00am to 9am.
