“The oil and gas industry is full of uncertainty. Above and underground uncertainties impact the way we do business and affect companies' bottom lines. Quantifying uncertainty and factoring its impact in our decision-making process can improve decision quality leading to maximising the return on investment. In addition to addressing the global economic and energy outlook, this workshop will focus on decision analysis and the value of assessing uncertainty. It is the perfect platform to gain new knowledge and sail through these uncertain times.”

It successfully brings together representatives from National Oil Companies, IOC’s and service companies, and really helps educate the community on the many differing perspectives.
