SPE Virtual Upstream Finance and Investments Conference 11 - 12 Nov 2020 Virtual [GMT; UTC+0]

Resilience and Transformation - The Future of Upstream Investment

Leading Upstream Finance and Investments Conferences Goes Virtual!



The oil and gas industry has experienced highs and lows during the past decade, but the situation it faces in 2020 is unprecedented.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a significant slump in demand and the prospect of long-term price volatility. It raises the possibility of accelerated peak oil as governments develop a greener focus in economic recovery and investors continue to factor environmental factors ever more strongly in investment decisions. However, the current crisis is also an opportunity to challenge existing operating models and accelerate the industry’s transformation towards a lower carbon future.



This must-attend event offers a virtual environment hosting a truly inclusive and engaging learning experience. By using the latest technology, SPE will deliver a high-quality and topical agenda, while also keeping our community connected during this challenging time.

The new format will provide a series of interactive technical content, collaboration experiences including live speaker Q&A, 1:1 chats and group networking lounges.
