Increased integration of remote technology will transform maritime operations and maintenance (O&M) practices and bring significant benefits for the energy industry, including improved safety and security, project efficiencies, and a reduction in carbon emissions. But what is equally important is the access to Geo-data and analysis that our clients rely on to realise and operate their projects: autonomous vessels, controlled from remote operations centres (ROCs) as far away as in different time zones, streaming data in shorter time frames to accelerate decision-making and smooth logistics. Together, digitalisation and technology lay the foundation for a new way of working.

5 trends that are changing the Middle East: can Africa change too?

2020 was a tumultuous year for the Middle East region with coronavirus restrictions and the oil price crash hitting hard. Two oil price crashes in five years have focused minds on the vulnerability of oil revenues. Middle East governments are proactively making their economies more resilient. This crisis proved to be an inflexion point with new trends emerging and existing trends accelerating. New policies are broadly aimed at maximising the strategic benefit of oil and gas resources at the same time as diversifying revenue streams. There is an economic transition from over-dependence on oil to a more balanced economy. Some countries are best positioned with competitive and abundant hydrocarbon resources, capable NOCs, stable governments, attractive investment conditions and sizeable sovereign wealth funds. There will be winners and losers.

Increased integration of remote technology will transform maritime operations and maintenance (O&M) practices and bring significant benefits for the energy industry, including improved safety and security, project efficiencies, and a reduction in carbon emissions. But what is equally important is the access to Geo-data and analysis that our clients rely on to realise and operate their projects: autonomous vessels, controlled from remote operations centres (ROCs) as far away as in different time zones, streaming data in shorter time frames to accelerate decision-making and smooth logistics. Together, digitalisation and technology lay the foundation for a new way of working.

5 trends that are changing the Middle East: can Africa change too?

2020 was a tumultuous year for the Middle East region with coronavirus restrictions and the oil price crash hitting hard. Two oil price crashes in five years have focused minds on the vulnerability of oil revenues. Middle East governments are proactively making their economies more resilient. This crisis proved to be an inflexion point with new trends emerging and existing trends accelerating. New policies are broadly aimed at maximising the strategic benefit of oil and gas resources at the same time as diversifying revenue streams. There is an economic transition from over-dependence on oil to a more balanced economy. Some countries are best positioned with competitive and abundant hydrocarbon resources, capable NOCs, stable governments, attractive investment conditions and sizeable sovereign wealth funds. There will be winners and losers.

With this objective in mind, the EITI is convening a high-level Africa Energy Dialogue. This will be a closed, invitation-only session for Ministers and VIPs, under Chatham House rules.
The Energy Dialogue will provide policy makers an opportunity to exchange among peers on emerging trends and key questions, such as:

• How can African countries proactively engage in the energy transition to achieve long term sustainable development goals, including those embodied in the African Union’s Agenda 2063?
• What is the role of the extractive sector in continuing to provide revenues to meet urgent priorities in producing countries, while mitigating against the risks of pollution and harm to society?

EITI Energy Dialogue (Invitation Only)

Trusted data and informed public debate will play a key role in underpinning the policies to manage the sector through the transition to a sustainable, decarbonised economy. With this objective in mind, the EITI is convening a high-level Africa Energy Dialogue. This will be a closed, invitation-only session for Ministers and VIPs, under Chatham House rules.
The Energy Dialogue will provide policy makers an opportunity to exchange among peers on emerging trends and key questions, such as:

• How can African countries proactively engage in the energy transition to achieve long term sustainable development goals, including those embodied in the African Union’s Agenda 2063?
• What is the role of the extractive sector in continuing to provide revenues to meet urgent priorities in producing countries, while mitigating against the risks of pollution and harm to society?
• What are the critical trade-offs to be addressed in developing policies to attract quality investment and mitigate against the risk of stranded assets?
• What data would be required to help inform decision making and how can governments engage in a constructive public debate to bring about sustainable reforms?
