New York, July 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Global Oil and Gas Outlook, 2022" -
Amid the geopolitical chaos and Russo-Ukrainian, the oil price rose to $117 per barrel in Q1 2022. Despite the better-than-expected recovery in the oil and gas industry, uncertainty still looms due to changes in market dynamics in the coming years. This outlook study addresses the global market dynamics and implications in regional hot spots. As we move toward the second half of 2022, we observe that oil and gas companies are very disciplined with their capital spending, focusing more on their financial health, investing in more sustainable businesses, and committing toward climate change and transforming their business models. We have identified 5 major trends representing key pillars for growth within the oil and gas industry in the medium to long term.
• With increased oil prices, companies will have additional funds to invest in decarbonization and green energy solutions, such as carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).
• Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) will play a significant role in the Oil and Gas Industry, driven by Europe’s urgent need for a quick natural gas supply. United States will rise as the main LNG supplier to Europe.
• Electrification will play a growing role in industrial decarbonization, focusing mainly on oil and gas, cement, iron and steel, and chemicals industries.
• Demand for low carbon hydrogen is forecast to reach 60 Mt by 2030, with a potential to reduce 700 Mt of CO2 annually.
• Digitalization technologies will underpin the energy transition within oil and gas companies. Automation technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and the internet of things will be implemented to increase energy efficiency.
