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.

More recently, against the background of improved and more stable commodity prices and new investment opportunities, equity and debt markets have demonstrated renewed appetite to provide funding to the industry. Energy banks and other relevant lending institutions have largely rebuilt their balance sheets and are now seeking economically sound financing proposals. Recent successful equity issuances have also confirmed a more positive investor sentiment towards the energy sector. 

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, will host its next two-day workshop in September 2017 in London. The workshop will bring 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.
