20 September 2017 - 21 September 2017 at China World Summit Hotel, No.1 Jianguomenwai Avenue, Beijing, 100004, China

Join us in 2017 as 500 business leaders from energy (upstream, LNG/midstream, downstream, infrastructure, renewables, services), finance and investment gather to discuss the future of China

The China Energy Assembly is recognised as the most international energy meeting in China, with the participation of Chinese SOEs and International energy companies, energy service companies, industry advisors, financiers and investors. The event is a business development, strategy and investment focused meeting designed for attendees to discuss the role that China’s domestic and outbound E&P development will play in the global energy industry.

Organised in association with the Energy Council, the 2017 Assembly will gather 500 executives from the upstream, midstream/LNG, downstream, trading, finance, investment and petroleum services sectors to Beijing for thought leadership, business development, and networking.

The event is held under Chatham House Rule and with simultaneous dual translation (Mandarin and English) for the benefit of local and international attendees.

We will discuss the following key topics:

China’s Global Energy Outlook: achieving the goals of the 13th five-year plan; China’s energy reform and future role of Chinese NOCs and SOEs; widening foreign access to domestic ‘clean energy’ opportunities; One Belt One Road implications and impact of current geopolitics on trade and investment

Growth by Natural Gas & LNG: demand outlook; future of regulated prices; reforms to drive new investment in domestic gas; growth potential for emerging independent gas companies and LNG importers; new integrated gas projects on the horizon

Enabling China’s Cleaner Energy Transition: The gas vs coal debate; opportunities for domestic and international companies to invest in cleaner energy; are current gas & renewable industry growth rates sustainable; and the role of the MNCs vs SOEs in progressing a greener agenda

Emerging Infrastructure Investment Opportunities: (midstream: pipelines, LNG terminals, gas storage, downstream: refineries); what are the strategies for success in returning investment; third party access vs divesting infrastructure assets; who will finance new developments and who has the capital to invest?

The Future of China’s Upstream: Who are the new and emerging players? What returns are achievable in this new oil price environment; overcoming challenges in mature fields with declining production; can IOCs still access Chinese E&P; the increasing role of OFS and overseas technology; how are NOCs optimizing their portfolios; has oil become a short-term energy security strategy for China; expected breakthroughs in E&P?

Outbound vs Inbound: Deal Flows and the New Wave of Chinese Buyers: Recent deals involving Chinese buyers and sellers; when will Chinese NOCs and SOEs re-establish themselves as key buyers; private sector growth strategies; government influence in outbound M&A; which countries and where in the value chain are buyers looking?

China’s Evolving Power Sector: Outbound Opportunities for Foreign-Domestic Partnerships: The outbound trend of China’s rapidly growing power sector; opportunities for power companies to invest up the energy value chain; the role of EPCs in global renewables growth; availability of Chinese capital and overcoming the challenges of intermittency and storage

"I don’t know of any other conference where you can meet such a large panel of Private and Public, Chinese and Foreign Oil & Gas players. I strongly recommend such opportunity to network and acquire what the sector needs to learn each year." 
Jean-Marc Guyot, Chairman and CEO, ENGIE China

"As always the China Assembly delivers as what the tin can says. Global energy issues debated underpinned by the hard-nosed reality of local context. I was particularly impressed with the mix of NOCs, supermajor and independents leadership attending together with thought leaders from the policy makers and research institutes in China.” 
Ling Lai, Chief Commercial Officer, Roc Oil

“Highly appreciate your involving SPT and myself in such a great event. It is our pleasure and honour to contribute our little share to this highly successful Assembly. It is becoming an annual landmark event among all the Oil & Gas related conferences of this kind in China. People really like and enjoy it very much. Congratulations!” 
Jin Shumao, Executive Director, SPT Energy
