National Oil Companies: Repositioning portfolios for growth

Tuesday, March 12

07:30 am - 08:40 am

NOCs continue to have a growing list of mandates that require a balancing act between increased domestic responsibilities across the energy value chain, attracting new investment/partners within domestic upstream, while also pursuing a renewed international growth phase. These shifting priorities, at a time of continued industry volatility, could have a marked impact on upstream investment/production, from a company, country, and regional perspective. What are the near-term priorities shaping decisions in upstream? Are NOCs shifting toward diversification or specialization in their respective portfolios? What partnership models are being considered to achieve success at home and abroad? How central is technology and innovation in making portfolio decisions?
