Description

 

Given the energy market’s strong correlation with the economy, the speed of the overall recovery is the single most important factor impacting the outlook for the oil and gas industry. McKinsey sees 4 potential scenarios, with the most likely outcome being a deep 2-4 years downturn, slowly returning to pre-crisis level of trade and globalization. However permanent, stalled globalization is also a likely outcome.

Come and join us at the General Meeting to learn about McKinsey's perspective on oil and gas markets and discuss the climate change related energy policy shifts that are currently influencing the petroleum industry.
