On Demand Webinar:
Post-pandemic Energy opportunities in APAC: value for money or time to head for the exits?
Asia holds 9 of the world’s 15 fastest growing economies and the Energy industry will play a central role in the development of these economies. Asia will be the largest energy consumers over the next 25 years, and many investors seeking high returns have already begun screening opportunities there as historically profitable geographies such as the US and the North Sea are becoming less economic in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the oil price war. But does Asia’s Energy industry offer the frameworks and sufficient upside potential to attract new investment?
Watch this on-demand webinar to hear industry-leader discuss and debate:
- Do investors see value in O&G or energy assets in APAC?
- What types of energy assets are the most attractive?
- Have the oil price fluctuations had the expected impacts? What are the key factors in the deals getting done at the moment?
- How is ESG impacting future investment decisions?
- What are the funding options available in this market and the impact of built up “dry powder”?
- How is Energy Transition part of the strategy?
