Petroleum Review September 2018

This month’s issue begins with a look at the implications of rising crude oil prices for fuel consumers – not only motorists at the forecourt pump, but also for airline operators and marine shippers, all of whom are feeling the pinch.

Our regional feature focuses on Latin America, a continent that has seen licensing rounds pick up, local content obligations relax and regulatory volatility decline in recent years. However, change may be on the cards following a number of recent presidental elections. We also take a closer look at developments in Venezuela and Brazil.

Moving to technology and innovation, the magazine highlights some of the major initiatives underway to mitigate methane emissions, a greenhouse gas reported to be at least 84 times more potent than CO2 over a 20-year horizon. We also look at innovations in the drilling sector, and how 3D printing is beginning to change how the energy sector delivers new technologies for the oil and gas sector.

In addition, this month’s issue includes the second in our ‘Energy in Conversation’ informal discussions. This time, EI CEO Louise 
Kingham talks with Keith Anderson, CEO of ScottishPower, about the benefits of diversity in the energy workforce.
