Always subject to cyclical changes and commodity price volatility, the upstream oil and gas business has been particularly stressed by the recent oil price downturn. How have upstream portfolios changed over time, and how well prepared are they for future volatility? We'll discuss:

  • How portfolios are changing over time to adapt to a shifting market environment.
  • How portfolios can be shaped to address risks and capitalize on opportunities in an uncertain future.
  • The attributes of a future-ready portfolio, including: consistency of strategy in an actively managed portfolio, a focus on investment cycles, and prioritizing operational excellence over location.

Participants will gain an understanding of the changing shape of upstream oil and gas portfolios and the attributes needed to perform in a volatile market.

The portfolio predicament

In an era of uncertain oil prices and higher shareholder expectations, developing a future-ready portfolio is likely to be a priority for O&G companies. However, with the myriad narratives and tools in the marketplace, this is easier said than done.
