Financing and de-risking the energy industry in a new global context

26 - 27 September 2017 - London

The past few years, following the global financial crisis, can be characterised by a shortage of public equity funding and tighter and more stringent corporate credit conditions. This has made the long-term financing of the energy industry a major management challenge.

Although financing conditions have generally improved, there remains caution around risk management and mitigation and, at the same time, meeting the essential requirement to achieve acceptable returns on invested capital.

Following the success of this event in 2016, the UK National Committee of the World Petroleum Council, in partnership with the Energy Institute, hosted a workshop which brought experts from the finance and energy industries together to address these challenges and to focus on possible financing solutions that facilitate the de-risking of the energy industry in the new global context.

Speakers included:

  • Wim Thomas FEI, Chief Energy Advisor, Shell International
  • Jonathan Pickworth, Partner White & Case
  • Xavier Veillard, Managing Director – Energy & Commodities Strategy – Europe, Accenture Strategy
  • Jon Therkleson, Senior Derivatives Marketer, BP
  • Andrew Bartlett, Adviser, Helios
  • Josh Presley, Head of CEEMEA Debt Syndication, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
  • Fergus Marcroft, Senior Advisor, Hannam & Partners
  • Andrew Foster, Co-Head of Corporate Broking, Morgan Stanley
  • Richard Kent, International Head of Investment Banking, Jefferies International
  • Shaun Reynolds, Director, Mergers & Acquisitions, Deloitte
  • Graham Talbot, Executive Vice President & CFO, Maersk Energy
  • Marcus Flint, Senior Principal Consultant, DNV GL
  • Richard Jones, Partner, White & Case
