Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 13, 2020: Robert Minter, Investment Strategist at Aberdeen Standard Investments, explains the impact of the pandemic on the O&G sector worldwide and offers some predictions for the next 12 months.
Some stress had already begun to appear in the global oil markets at the turn of the year. The US and Europe were in the middle of an unusually warm winter, which reduced energy demand. In the US, investors were prioritising capital discipline over production increases and had started raising interest rates for lower credit quality oil producers. But little evidence existed for the impending shock to demand that would dwarf all others.
The first cases of coronavirus occurred in early December but were not in sufficient scale to be noticed until six weeks later ......read more

These developments have put many government and health authorities under considerable pressure to reduce lock downs.
While some may be successful many are not yet ready and the impact on growth and demand will continue to deteriorate. These developments continue to be most visible across key commodities as they respond to demand more most other sectors.

Written by: Georges El Mir, Vice President Oil, Gas & Petrochemicals, Schneider Electric
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, April 16, 2020: Oil prices have been declining since reaching a record of almost $150/barrel over a decade ago (yes, prices were that high).

We are in a vicious cycle when maintaining investment into the future is critical for innovation and sustainability, not just during the next few years but well into the next few decades. This volatility has further compounded the existing challenges, such as, an ageing workforce and increased environmental regulations. How can refineries and petrochemical plants continue to sustain ......read more

As many of us settle into a routine of working from home, companies have never been better prepared to take advantage of the technology now available to meet these new demands.
However, this greater flexibility in how we are working comes with drawbacks. To stay connected with our colleagues, remote working requires greater usage of electricity and energy, between plugging in our machines, using appliances more often, and the temptation for regular trips to the coffee machine or boiling water for a cup of tea.
This means we are using far more energy without realizing it, and in turn seeing our electricity bills rise. But there are some simple tips and tricks you can implement into your daily work at home routine that will help you use energy more efficiently and save money on your electricity bills in the ......read more

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, February 19, 2020: Today, devices of all kinds across the Oil & Gas industry are equipped with intelligent sensors that gather data.
