On Demand Webinar:
There Is No Future For Frontier Exploration
With increased pressure from “green” companies on the industry to stop exploring coupled with the high cost of exploration, will the current pause on exploration end up being a permanent, hard stop?
Watch this on-demand webinar to hear industry-leader discuss and debate:
- What is the future of exploration in the world of the energy transition?
- With huge savings possible by cutting exploration budgets, will today’s cuts end up being a permanent feature?
- With some high value basins still untouched, do companies still have the appetite to explore?
- With the world being a long way off from real alternative to fossil fuels, will exploration bounce back in 2021?
