NOC Assembly

2 December 2020
London

The go-to meeting place for National Oil Companies Globally

Boost your margins, maximise profits, increase funding, strengthen resources and perfect partnerships

What is the NOC Assembly?

Returning to London on 2 December 2020, the Oil and Gas Council’s National Oil Companies Assembly (NOC Assembly) offers a unique platform for national and international oil companies and their partners to engage with their peers from around the world and discuss the key energy issues of the day. Supported by key representatives from national champions Saudi Aramco, ADNOC, NNPC as well as the world’s biggest investor Blackrock, it provided the only international gathering solely focused on National Oil Companies and SOEs.

The key topics for the 2020 NOC Assembly are

  • NOC recovery strategies – what are the success stories of 2020? How to prepare for times of crisis.
  • Projections around new supply/demand scenarios and the ‘new’ arrival of peak-oil demand?
  • Examining the strategies being rolled out by NOCs to ensure short term recovery and sustainability – how to be robust 2020-2025
  • Predicting the behaviour of the consumer: How will behavioural attitudes changed as a result of Covid-19 and how do they affect the Oil Industry?
  • With 2020 CAPEX significantly cut and analysts forecasting depressed oil prices for 18+ months, how will Capital be sourced in the coming years?
  • Cutting costs and reducing operational expenditure
  • The Monetisation of NOC Assets and the prioritisation of assets within a portfolio
  • How much M&A are we likely to see globally in upstream and how aggressively will NOCs move to broaden their portfolios?
  • Are NOCs’ approaches to the Energy Transition only based on harnessing the potential of clean energy to make their upstream exploration and downstream operations more efficient?
  • A longer term vision for the National Oil Company – how long until we are referring to NOCs as National Energy Companies?
  • Investing in technology to sustain 2020 recovery and improve operations going into 2021 and 2022
  • If the Energy Transition is inevitable and NOCs are diversifying, what role will carbon capture, hydrogen and other emissions reductions technologies play in the operations of NOCs globally?
  • The growing importance of big data, AI and digital technology

What else do you need to know about the NOC Assembly?

The NOC Assembly is run under the Chatham House Rule and is not an exhibition. The size of the show, coupled with the freedom of speakers to share, uninhibited by the media, allows for real access to senior NOC leaders and real conversation through interactive panel discussions.

As a NOC Assembly attendee you will also benefit from our Council Connect service which enables you to have pre-scheduled one2one meetings throughout the day. You can find out more here.
