New Technological Frontiers Report

The oil and gas sector has embraced innovation since its beginnings in the 19th century, and its response to the digital revolution now unfolding continues this tradition. Powerful new technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud applications, have upgraded or overtaken old ones.

Upstream Oil & Gas M&A: Co-operation for innovation

In 2017 we saw a continuation of the upturn in upstream M&A which began in late 2016. The oil & gas industry has been through a sustained period of focus on cost cutting but, as the oil price stabilises, many players are now seeing an opportunity to refocus on growth.

Every year the team create an agenda that is always topical to market conditions, with key figures sharing their insights on the business. Between the formal agenda and the informal meetings on the sidelines, I manage to get a huge amount of work done, and good intel on latest developments in the sector.”
