🔺What does 2018 hold for the global energy sector?
🔺Oil and gas target a low carbon future
🔺New technology – the robots are coming
This month’s issue of Petroleum Review begins with a bit of crystal ball gazing, assessing what opportunities and challenges lie ahead for the global energy sector in 2018 and beyond.
Meanwhile, in the lead up to February’s IP Week 2018, Dr Mohammad Ali Emadi, a Senior Advisor at the National Iranian Oil Company, outlines development opportunities in Iran’s oil and gas sector. We also shine the spotlight on the energy sector’s transition to a low carbon future, including a review of what the UK’s oil and gas sector should be doing to demonstrate its commitment to the carbon reduction cause, and highlight some of the latest technological innovations in this field.
Continuing the theme of innovation, we report on the development of a new generation of autonomous and semi-autonomous robots that are set to revolutionise safety, inspection and maintenance, and explain how the oil and
gas sector can adapt in order to counter increasing cyber attacks on energy networks.
