Quo Vadis Exploration?

Presented by: Alan Fernie


The Energy Transition is under way and the fuel mix will change to reduce the relative contribution
of combustible hydrocarbons. The question is how fast, to what degree, and what are the
implications for the Oil and Gas exploration business? Possible transition scenarios and forecasts are
widely different in relation to the hydrocarbon question. Industry and Governments need to take a
view and appropriate action to ensure energy security and an orderly transition. Let’s take a look at
the landscape and activity, and extrapolate what might be needed. Interesting recent activity
suggests exploration is by no means dead.
