Hydrocarbon Processing's Industry Outlook: 2020 Update
5 October 2020

Sponsor: S & B

Over the past several years, the world has witnessed significant downstream capacity growth in all sectors of the downstream hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI). However, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically affected global demand for transportation fuels and petrochemical products, as well as capital spending. Although the HPI has had a rough start to 2020, refined products and petrochemicals demand is forecast to increase in the future. To satisfy increasing demand for refined fuels, petrochemicals and natural gas, every region is investing to increase downstream processing capacity. With more than $1.9 T in announced projects globally, it is imperative that HPI companies receive the most up-to-date and valid information on market trends, and the future development of the downstream processing industry. 

During this live webcast, Lee Nichols will provide a mid-year update on capital projects around the world, as well as major economic, environmental and political market trends that are shaping and influencing the industry in the near-term.

Is the world now ready for hydrogen?
18 June 2020

Sponsor: King & Spalding

The science behind the hydrogen economy has been around for many years, but only now are the necessary real-world factors coming together to support its implementation. Is this the right time to start building a hydrogen economy?

Governments, companies and electorates are increasingly viewing hydrogen as the most workable solution to the challenge set by the Paris Agreement. It offers huge potential gains over fossil fuels for power and transport and in terms of supporting renewables in power grids and storing energy. The challenge is how to make it all economically viable. 

The expert panel will discuss the progress made in developing a hydrogen economy and the challenges that remain. It will cover:

  • The potential pathways to a hydrogen economy
  • Legal and regulatory issues for developing a new market
  • Capital market funding and investor perspectives
  • Technological developments and cost reduction

Asia's Natural Gas Midstream in Focus: Tracking Key Investment Patterns and Potential Impacts
12 March 2020

Energy Web Atlas

Asia drives global LNG demand. Robust demand for cleaner-burning fuel in Asian countries amid rapid population growth, improvements to living standards, and general economic advancement provide a context for sustained LNG import capacity investment.

LNG exporters to Asia have a slew of challenges to contend with, however, including the prospects for project sanction delays and other demand-side factors impacted by global health scares, relative economic underperformance, and trade disputes and wars. The continued drop in global natural gas prices continues to constrain prospects.

Asian LNG prices reached extremely low levels in the 1Q of 2020 amid a glut of global natural gas production and the start of additional global export capacity. Less severe winters, increased demand-side efficiencies, and potential new LNG capacity could continue to depress price levels. The prospect of ever-increasing Asian LNG demand prompted massive capacity investment in both upstream developments and midstream infrastructure. The factors may come as a boon to demand centers, but operators with oil-linked contracts are at a disadvantage.

This webcast describes the key drivers, challenges, and impacts of Asian LNG capacity investment to 2025 and an examination of the implications for a variety of far-reaching factors. We look at the effects of potential oil-linked vs. hub-based pricing in the Asian project economics context, highlight critical factors supporting or inhibiting project progression, and provide a five-year outlook on anticipated capacity expansion for key Asian LNG import nations, including China, Japan, India, and South Korea.

Meeting Europe’s Natural Gas Infrastructure Challenge: Opportunities and Outlook 2020
5 December 2019

Energy Web Atlas

Demand for Europe’s natural gas transmission infrastructure is increasingly in focus as the continent’s natural gas dependency continues to reach all-time highs. Amid steep year-over-year declines in natural gas production, the continent is increasingly reliant on LNG imports and international pipelines to supply key regions. But key restraints remain in areas where import capacity has insufficient access to growing demand centers. Additionally, emerging demand factors and remote upstream developments amid a push for lower carbon fuels provides a context for midstream infrastructure investment. 

We examine the implications for managing the supply of natural gas through Europe to consumers. We examine capital investments, potential, and identify areas where a conflux of issues may lead to a gas transmission system shortfall. We examine regional natural gas transmission capacity and import facility capacities compared to the prospects of domestic supply and growing demand centers. Which areas require additional investment by midstream operators and what are the implications of this for the broader gas dynamics of Europe.
