Is increasing oil and gas prices caused by fundamental factors such as high economic growth in China, limited production capacity and decreasing access to resources (peak oil), or is this development a result of short-term/long-term fluctuations in commodity prices?
Will increasing access to conventional and new energy resources provide upward pressure on oil and gas prices?
How will climate policies affect the demand for and prices of oil and gas?
What does this mean for the profitability of the Norwegian oil and gas industry and the value of the companies in this industry?
These are some of the questions we will focus on during our second commodity conference. The conference will highlight today's energy markets, and how these can be expected to develop over the next 10-20 years.
