NOCs vs IOCs: International Upstream investments in oil and gas

About the lecture

Oil and gas industry has evolved significantly in the past few decades. The large majority of reserves are currently owned but NOC or governmental authorities. As a natural consequence IOCs have to be far more creative to understand where opportunities are available and how to secure them. This presentation will discuss the main issues behind the whole upstream process from the draft concept until the establishment of an international upstream investment itself.
