Invited Talk on "The Global Crude Market & Its Pricing Challenges"
Speaker: Vyacheslav M. Mishchenko, Senior Vice-President - Russia and FSU, Argus Media
Crude prices have dropped notably in recent years and the effects are being felt worldwide. Falling prices and geopolitical tensions are some of the most critical challenges confronted by the industry. Over the last decade two key trends have surged: shale oil wells emerging across the US and demand for oil in the East soaring.
Crude can provide huge liquidity and excellent opportunities to profit in practically all market conditions despite the energy sector volatility. Today's energy executives need to successfully do business in an era of low oil prices.
ESCP Europe and its Research Centre for Energy Management hosted a discussion on the topic "The Global Crude Market & Its Pricing Challenges". The event took place at ESCP Europe's London Campus at 7:00 pm on 8th November, 2016.
Guest speaker Vyacheslav M. Mishchenko revealed vital elements to be considered by oil and gas executives. Participants will hear the latest on:
- Seismic changes in the world oil trade
- US crude export flows to grow
- OPEC’s changing role
- Russian crude to go East
- Will crude become a cyclical market?
The talk was followed by a networking reception, allowing attendees the opportunity to meet the speaker and network with our MSc in Energy Management (MEM) students and Alumni.
