Horizons Live: Scraping the barrel

1 minute read

Simon Flowers, Chairman and Chief Analyst hosts this edition's Horizons Live replay and is joined by Andrew Latham, Vice President, Energy Research and Ann-Louise Hittle, Head of Macro Oils.

Total oil and gas resources are more than likely to double demand by 2050, with gas reserves sitting at 1.5 trillion oil-barrel equivalents. It’s the quality of this supply that’s the issue.

Watch on demand as our panel discusses whether the world is running out of high-quality oil and gas.
