The dramatic collapse in the oil price during the second half of 2014 shocked our industry and proved to be a major topic of conversation for 2015. With the benefit of a year’s perspective on the 2014 fall we felt that this would be an excellent opportunity for an update to our January panel discussion at the start of this year.

Some of the elements we will cover: why did the collapse occur; what has changed in the global oil market over the last 18 months? How are the major oil exporting countries managing their economies? Will the oil price ever recover?

This panel meeting will be held under strict Chatham House Rules; this is to enable a free and frank exchange of views and perspectives. This presentation will not be recorded and will not be available on the webcast.

Please respect these principles. http://www.chathamhouse.org/about/chatham-house-rule

The panel discussion will start with an introduction by Jim Henderson of the Oxford Institute of Energy Studies who is specialist in analysing the oil market. This will be followed by short presentation from Andrew Lee of Société Générale on the impact in the project financing sector including the increase in petrochemical projects. Brian Songhurst, Research Associate at the Oxford Institute of Energy Studies and past SONG Chair will present on the impact on the engineering contractor business. These presenters will share their personal views to set a platform for and open and lively debate between all attendees.
