The dramatic collapse in the price of oil and the failure of the market to recover over the last two years has shocked all of us working in the oil and gas industry. Many questions are being asked, many beliefs are being challenged and there is much existential angst.

SONG has been tasked by the Energy Centre to hold an open discussion on the future of oil and gas for those of us working in the UK and London hydrocarbon business.

Some key questions and talking points have been identified:

  • is the oil and gas industry in decline?
  • what will the oil and gas industry look like in 10-20 years’ time?
  • what required transitions will the oil and gas industry need to undergo?
  • what are the main technical challenges for the oil and gas industry in meeting these transitions?
  • what are the main issues for the sector in our region?

The IChemE Energy Centre was launched in March 2015 with the aim of creating an expert group to provide an evidence-based chemical engineering perspective on global energy challenges.

To do this IChemE set up the Energy Centre Board, chaired by Prof Stefaan Simons; which includes representatives from all the energy-related Special Interest Groups, SONG included. Feedback from this event will be provided to the Energy Centre Board, no individual views will be attributed.
