Petroleum Review September 2017

This month’s Petroleum Review leads with a review of oil and gas developments in Latin America and the Caribbean, where infrastructure development and regional integration will be key to sustainable economic growth in the future. The feature includes in-depth analysis of the Argentine, Colombian and Brazilian markets.

We also report on how the drive to achieve energy security through a greater focus on renewable energy and a reduction in primary fossil fuels is rapidly gaining momentum.

Our innovation feature looks at prospects for nanotechnology in the oil and gas sector – considered a potential game-changing technology by some – and how new technologies are enabling the unconventionals sector to thrive in an adversarial market.

In addition, the Energy Institute’s Nigeria branch reports on how long-awaited reforms are finally beginning to be made in the country’s petroleum sector, and what role the branch has played in driving progress.

Meanwhile, this month’s online feature takes a closer look at the smart meter market in the UK and recent developments after the Queen’s Speech earlier this year hinted at a few policy updates.
