US energy: Halfway up or upside down? Searching for opportunity amid uncertainty

SEMINAR 1 | Tokyo Back-to-Business Program Series 2018

Recent times have seen dramatic changes in the US Energy industry—from the introduction of innovative drilling techniques allowing economic access to unconventional resources to global swings in oil prices. But where does the United States go from here? Will new technological advancements drive further economic development of oil and gas resources? Will the promise of a US infrastructure renaissance come to fruition? What does the burgeoning renewables industry and rapid advancement of battery technology mean for oil and gas companies? Uncertainty can present opportunities, but where do those opportunities lie and who is best placed to seize them?

Our experienced panelists will discuss their views on trends and opportunities in the US energy industry, including the potential impact of disruptive technologies and potential implications of US policy decisions, as well as structuring and financing issues that may arise when exploiting US energy opportunities.
