Many of the household major oil and gas companies have begun shifting their market position to better prepare for the impending climate revolution. This energy supply shift has been imagined in several scenarios, which in essence are distilled to: our current path, our stated path and the necessary path needed to reach net-zero emissions. Inevitably, the stuttering and profiteering has led us to the brink and now we, as a global society, must rely on our ingenuity to restore the planet to a stable state.
Easier said than done, of course, however making this process possible is the integration of advanced digital technologies into robust, legacy mechanical technologies. The rise of this digitalization has been known in the industry, as Oil and Gas 4.0 – referring to the technological era of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
The global energy crunch has reintroduced vigour into the oil and gas markets, especially in Asia Pacific where the soaring demand for LNG as a replacement for oil and coal has led to a high-cost environment that doesn’t appear to be slowing.
As winter’s cold touch spreads across Europe, there is an uneasiness about how the frigid temperatures will be weathered as gas prices creep ever higher.

Led by the US and the EU, together with 17 major economies, the Pledge was launched at COP26 to “catalyze global action and strengthen support for existing international methane emission reduction initiatives to advance technical and policy work that will serve to underpin Participants’ domestic actions.”
Many doubts arise when considering investment into Upstream in 2022; will there be expanded restrictions on funds and financiers, or will there be a repeat of the demand slump in early 2021, or will OPEC+ utilize their reserves to shift the price point to one that suits their objectives best. Such uncertainties will often worry the generalist investor but for the energy specialist with experience of the oil and gas cycles, the near future looks far more enticing.
