Webinar: Climate Change and the Oil Sector

ContactJacqueline Sánchez

The recent announcement by BP CEO Bernard Looney for the company to attain net zero emissions by 2050 is the latest news to ripple across the global oil industry with a direct link to confronting the climate challenge. Development of international agreements targeting emissions reduction, national policies and corporate goals are all placing increasing focus on the role of oil in a post-2050 world. This is particularly true for the large-scale, highly complex and capital-intensive projects in the sector that often take a decade or more to bring online. Layered on top of the foregoing is polarizing climate change activism and demands on oil and gas companies and the sector writ large. This begs the question of whether we are reaching the moment when it may already be too late for major new offshore oil development?
Join us for a webinar with Jed Bailey, Managing Director of Energy Narrative and long-time Latin American energy analyst. Bailey will share his insights on the intersection of climate activism and the oil and gas sector with insights for the region, particularly the possible implications for deepwater projects in Brazil and Mexico and the nascent oil sector in Guyana and Suriname.
The webinar will be held Tuesday, March 10 at 10:00am San Diego (12:00 pm Houston; 1:00 pm New York; GMT/UTC – 8 hours). The webinar will include a live Q&A session with the audience.
