It is now widely recognized that the world has sufficient oil and gas resources to satisfy future demand. However,
there are also acknowledged uncertainties in the provision of this supply to meet future energy needs as investors
face several risks, in an industry with long lead times and long pay-back periods. The ongoing impacts of financial
turmoil and economic downturn, the changing structure of world energy markets, and developments in policies and
technologies all directly affect energy supply and demand.
In addition, the emergence of oil as an asset class has transformed the oil market, which is now far more exposed to
the broader financial markets. As a result, the oil market has experienced greater volatility and the price of crude has
been impacted by a growing number of factors that are not directly related to supply and demand fundamentals.
This panel will debate key issues affecting today's fast-changing global energy industry. It will examine the
challenges and opportunities facing the petroleum sector, and seek to identify potential 'game-changers' in
technologies and public policy.
The panle will address:
Global trends
What are the global trends that will drive the worlds economies and energy demand over the next 20-30
What structural shifts have taken place in energy demand (global as well as regional) and energy supply
patterns over the past few years?
Role of Oil and Gas
How do oil and gas investments interact with developments in the world economy lessons learned from
the recent economic and financial crises and the impact of the global business cycles?
What is the role of oil and gas in meeting future energy demand?
Role of Technology
What are the most promising technology innovations on the horizon for the oil and gas industry?
What are the most disruptive technology innovations that could affect future demand for oil and gas? What
is their time frame?
Role of Policy
What are the examples where policy has been successful or unsuccessful? What can we learn from these

OTC 23658

Are energy efficiency and supply policies meeting their intended objectives or creating inefficient
allocation of capital? How can these be improved?
What will it take to provide more universal access to energy to billions of the worlds poor. (according to
IEA estimates, roughly 20 percent of the global population lives without electricity and 40 percent of the
population has no access to clean cooking facilities)

Business Models
What new commercial value chains (or partnership models) are forming to connect resources to markets?
What other structural adjustments (in different regions) are likely to take shape over the next twenty years?
How are different sectors of the energy industry positioning themselves to address the trends in energy
Are any structural changes likely to be required in order to deliver energy efficiently to the world?
