Decade of disruption

Energy Visions 2018

Is Canada ready for the global energy and technology convergence?

Global energy markets are changing

After a prolonged period of oversupply and low prices, the fundamentals of the global oil and gas market are shifting. Key factors influencing supply and demand are raising questions about the future of the energy mix while also altering what drives capital allocation, how the industry operates, national policies and broader geopolitics.

Producers have had to shift strategies due to these ever-changing market dynamics. They’re expected to do more with less and with greater environmental consideration—all amid growing uncertainty about the outlook for fossil fuels demand.

Over the next decade, Canadian producers are looking to evolve into stronger, more resilient players. In many cases, the keys to this are technology and innovation.

An Energy Visions deep dive: The dynamic between OPEC and US shale producers

Key uncertainties still weigh on price assumptions, investment decisions and the broader outlook for Canadian oil and gas production growth. One of these is continued uncertainty about near- to medium-term prices given the “push and pull” dynamic between OPEC and US shale producers. Last year, OPEC and some non-OPEC countries agreed to extend the landmark 2016 deal to reduce oil output through the end of 2018.

An Energy Visions deep dive: Uncertainty and variance cloud future outlook

An Energy Visions deep dive: Uncertainty and variance cloud future outlook

A key source of the uncertainty surrounding the future outlook of the oil and gas industry is the lack of a consensus in demand forecasts, including long-term predictions about when demand could peak. US-based international oil companies (IOCs) and their European counterparts have different outlooks for long-term demand—as do OPEC, the US Energy Information Administration and the International Energy Agency (IEA).
