Energy Markets Update – The Big Disruptors

President, Ernst & Young Orenda Corporate

Ernst & Young LLP’s Barry Munro will open conference Session One with an engaging presentation titled, “Energy Markets Update: The Big Disruptors.” He will discuss how the oil price collapse that started in 2014 was the beginning of a structural shift for the industry from a “scarcity of oil” model to an “abundance” model and how companies have been challenged to dramatically restructure by creating value in a lower-for-longer oil price world. He will also present several examples of the acceleration of portfolio optimization as companies focus their capital and seek better returns, as well as the lessons learned from these transactions applicable to Canada’s east coast energy business. Mr. Munro will tie it all together by describing the “big disruptors” that could accelerate and accentuate the remaking of the oil & gas business.
