What is the NOC Assembly?

Last year we created a special forum for our NOC clients and customers to meet and discuss the unique and historic challenges they are facing right now.

How will NOCs survive, adapt, and thrive in a post-peak demand O&G world? What models are they adopting to meet the requirements of a low carbon future? How is their relationship with IOCs, third-party capital and investment, and the world, changing?

Conference themes:

  • From National Oil Company to National Energy Company – the diversification of the NOC
  • From National Champion to International Champion – the internationalisation of the NOC
  • From State-funded to third-party stakeholders – new sources of finance for the NOC
  • The NOC/IOC relationship in the new energy age
  • Technology and R&D – The digitisation of the NOC

The O&G Council has worked with NOCs on every continent for nearly a decade. In 2017 the Oil and Gas Council attracted over 1000 attendees from different NOCs, SOEs and Government Ministries.

Day One - 24 September 2018

 

7:30am – 8:30am Registration and Coffee 

Opening Session: NOCs and the Great Global Energy Market Disruption

NOCs are undergoing the most profound transformation in their history – comparable to the nationalizations of decades past. The traditional NOC model is being challenged on multiple fronts. This panel considers the most salient disruptions NOCs are dealing with – whatever their size or model.

  • The new price/cost environment
  • The emergence of renewable energy
  • The diversification of the traditional National Oil Company
  • New technologies and strategies for efficiency
  • Partial privatisation of NOCs and new sources of funding

 – Coffee Break – 

Morning Session 2: Adapting to a low carbon-future

Peak oil demand is estimated by some to be 5-15 years away. With NOCs sitting on two-thirds of the remaining oil supply, how are they planning for a future characterised by falling demand?

  • IOCs have made grand forays into renewable energy investment. Will NOCs, with their very different priorities, follow them?
  • Under what circumstances does investing in renewable energy make economic and/or political sense?
  • Spotlight on some recent announcements on NOC’s renewable plans.

Morning Session 3: Finding Capital, Allocating Capital – New sources of funding, new priorities for spending 

  • How have NOCs responded to shortfalls in revenues?
  • IPOs, Project Financing, Bond Markets – how are NOCs finding new sources of finance?
  • What are the considerations for an NOC considering tapping the capital markets and third-party finance?
  • How has capital allocation changed, how is it changing? Where is the money going?

 – Lunch – 

Afternoon Session 1: From National Oil Company to National Energy Company – the diversification of NOCs 

  • Should NOCs focus on turning themselves into national energy providers instead of simply oil and gas producers?
  • Case studies of diversification: NOC forays into Gas to power, LNG, Renewables, Refining, etc.
  • What can NOCs learn from IOCs who have already become vertically integrated entities?

– Coffee Break – 

Afternoon Session 2: From National Champions to International Champions – the globalization of NOCs

  • Overseas M&A – trends and projections.
  • Securing Resources or securing markets – a look at the different rationales for NOCs expanding abroad.
  • Possible pathways towards internationalisation.

 

– 5.00 – 7.00pm: COCKTAIL RECEPTION

Day Two - 25 September 2018

 

7:30am – 8:30am Registration and Coffee 

Morning Session 1: Technology and R&D – How are NOCs transforming their fortunes with advanced technology and digitisation?

  • Perspectives on the digitisation of O&G, and the role of big data analytics.
  • AI, digital twins, automation
  • Where are NOCs on the technology adoption curve, and how can they accelerate their adoption of digital technologies?

– Coffee Break – 

Morning Session 2: The NOC / IOC relationship and how it will change 

  • Do IOCs need NOCs as much as they used to? How has the relationship changed recently and how will it evolve?


Morning Session 3: The Emerging NOC 

  • How can smaller NOCs leverage their position for optimal results?
  • What are the unique challenges faced by emerging NOCs, and what can they learn from others who have been there before?
  • What are the emerging political and regulatory challenges new NOCs face that are particular to them and how are they navigating them?


Closing Session: The reinvention of the traditional NOC – strategies for success
A recap on the various pressures NOCs are facing, and the paths they are taking to achieve their successful, sustainable transformation in a post-peak demand global market.
