Full Description

 

As low commodity prices have left North American unconventional gas plays increasingly unprofitable, operators and investors have been forced to look at alternative unconventional opportunities – North American tight oil and international shale gas.

In this presentation Wood Mackenzie will outline the most important pros and cons for each investment theme from a commercial vantage point. For many operators and investors, the portfolio benefits and price risks in domestic tight oil plays compete head-to-head with the low entry costs and massive resource potential of international unconventional gas assets.

In Wood Mackenzie’s view, large portfolio players (majors and large independents) will continue to increase their investments in international gas plays. Additionally, supply players (NOCs and utilities seeking access to volumes) will invite experienced unconventional operators to participate in their domestic gas opportunities.

Many of the most promising non-US opportunities in unconventional gas are in Latin America and Asia Pacific. Here, larger companies will seek sizeable positions, with supply players controlling access where they can.

Robert Clarke will present Wood Mackenzie’s view on unconventional resources around the world, including the strategies companies will employ to develop these plays.
