2018 Wood Mackenzie Hong Kong Executive Forum

  • Hong Kong S.A.R.
Peak oil demand is rearing its head again in the wake of the rapid changes the energy industry is currently undergoing. Declining crude production in Asia, growing gas and petrochemical demand, lower oil demand due to electrification of transport fleets, and policy uncertainties around environment and trade are some of the key issues challenging industry players. Against this backdrop of energy transition, how do upstream NOCs in Asia respond? What does this mean for the gas market in China? How do refiners and petrochemical players integrate better?
