Theme: Transforming the Energy Landscape
In only five years, the US energy landscape has changed dramatically. Natural gas has morphed from an era of tight supplies with high prices to an era of ample supplies and for the first nine months of 2012, the price of natural gas averaged $2.66 per Mcf – less than half of what it was five years ago. Moreover, an extended decline in oil production has been reversed. Since 2008, US oil production has increased by 25 percent — the highest growth in oil output for any country in the world over this time period. Thanks to the Great North American Energy Revival, North American tight oil production could reach 5 MMbd of oil and condensate and another 5.5 MMbd of natural gas liquids before 2020. The implications are enormous. E&P portfolios must adjust. Midstream and downstream infrastructure must be aligned with the new sources of supplies. Technologies and operating practices must keep up with below ground and above ground challenges. There are huge impacts on the economy, job creation and the revitalization of energy dependent industries. These dynamics will also create confrontations with community, environmental, logistics and policy issues.
It is not possible for the 2013 NAPE Business Conference to address all of these issues, but four panels have been organized to address a broad spectrum of the issues during the business conference. In the opening keynote session industry leaders will share their insights on the energy landscape. The “Dialogue on Energy” panel will discuss policy and regulatory issues. The distinguished lunch speaker, Narriman Behravesh, chief economist of IHS Global Insight, will share his outlook on the US economy and the role of energy in shaping the economy. In the afternoon, senior executives will share their insight on how expanding unconventional oil and gas supplies and infrastructure are transforming the energy landscape. Experts in the final panel will present their views on how technologies will impact the evolution of oil and gas supplies and associated water management issues.
