Monday, 24 July

There have been many panel sessions, forums and conferences dedicated to operators’ views of how to thrive in today’s price environment. This leaves the conversation unfinished since understanding how suppliers view their side of the market is critical to operators’ decisions as well. The service side of the oil and gas industry is dealing with the same uncertainty. Yet, while the business model may be different from an operator, service company problems are everyone’s problems: if the suppliers of products and services are not healthy, then the oil and gas industry will not be successful in the future.

The panel, intentionally bereft of operators, contains executives representing all aspects of the unconventional equipment and services supply chain. The panel will look at how the service side of our business expects to survive while delivering the technology and manpower needed for the industry to succeed in an uncertain price environment.

Date Monday, 24 July

“University enrollment in petroleum related sciences and investments in sponsored research nearly doubled between 2010 and 2014 in response to increasing oil price. The last two and a half year downturn in oil price resulted in operating companies and the service sector going into survival mode. This translated into pulling back funding for sponsored research and job prospects for graduates. Today oil and gas prices appear to be strengthening and confidence in the energy market is improving. In this session, the panel will explore the impact of these events on petroleum education and how Universities have sustained research programs and support for engineering and geoscience education.”
