Event description
“Oil in the energy transition – the funding impact on host governments” - Dr Carole Nakhle, CEO of Crystol Energy

About this event


The energy transition to a greener energy future is accelerating. More and more governments are embracing net zero targets and major oil companies are committing to a cleaner portfolio mix. Even conventional oil producers in the Middle East are embracing a greener agenda. The impact, however, on producers is not going to be uniform: while some governments may have to forgo a substantial source of income, others may enjoy further capitalizing on their oil and gas resources. This in turn can have major implications on the dynamics of the energy transition as well as on security of supply. The presentation will contrast the implications of the energy transition on major oil producers in the OECD – home to some of the largest private oil companies in the world – and the Middle East home to some of the largest national oil companies in the world
