There are over 500 leaders, senior politicians, investors, strategists and experts from the international oil and gas industry - all of which are participants in the 38th edition of the Annual Oil & Money Conference in London. This year, among the speakers are Khalid A. Al-Falih, the Minister of Petroleum, Industry and Mining Resources of Saudi Arabia, Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of the United Arab Emirates and General Manager of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, Secretary General of OPEC, Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of Total, and Bob Dudley, Group Chief Executive BP. Among the topics to be discussed at this year’s event, co-hosted by the New York Times and Energy Intelligence, are the outlook for oil prices, the challenge of profitable upstream development, the impacts of geopolitical uncertainties in the Middle East and elsewhere, the rebound in U.S shale and the disruptive capacity of new transport technologies for energy resources. A special extra session is to be dedicated to the global gas industry, with a particular focus on changes in international L.N.G markets, the uncertainty over gas demand growth, new business models for gas producers and the changing profile of gas and L.N.G buyers.
