World Energy Capital Assembly

 

 

3 – 4 December 2018
Hilton Park Lane, London, UK

 

EUROPE’S LARGEST GATHERING OF INTERNATIONAL ENERGY EXECUTIVES, INVESTORS AND FINANCIERS

What is World Energy Capital Assembly?

Most outlook reports predict that, even with the rise in alternative energy sources, oil remains an integral part of the energy mix for at least the next 25 years but with several years of reduced investment, is the industry seeing enough expenditure to ensure sufficient supply? On the other side of the coin is natural gas, which is fast becoming the standalone component of the global energy mix – how can competitive pricing be ensured and what is the industry’s strategy for LNG Market Development? Hear from the likes of BP, Citi and Equinor’s Chief Economists and leading PE Funds such as Kerogen Capital, Rivertone Holdings and Warburg Pincus for their thoughts on these and other issues and opportunities facing the industry today.

The 10th World Energy Capital Assembly, an anchor event on the industry calendar, brings together the oil & gas and finance & investment worlds to discuss emerging and re-emerging energy investment opportunities, review deals done in 2018 and chart E&P activity across the year. Renowned as the Assembly which gives a voice to the Small and Mid-Cap players alongside IOCs and NOCs, it provides unrivaled access to what is now the world’s most influential network of senior executives from across the energy, finance and investment worlds.

Closing two packed days, the largest energy Awards Dinner in Europe offers the ideal setting for celebrating the industry’s achievements alongside 900 senior executives in the most glamorous of settings.

“The Oil & Gas Assembly is still the best attended event in the calendar of energy events. I particularly value the expert panels of major and junior oil companies discussing the key issues driving our industry.” – Angelos Damaskos, Chief Executive Officer, Sector Investments
