Invited Talk on "Formation and Evolution of European Gas Prices"

Speaker: Lucie Roux, Senior Specialist, European Gas, Platts & (EMEM Class, 2012)

Europe represents one of the regions where the most important developments in price formation have taken place over the last decade. The continent registered a significant shift to 64% gas hub price indexation in 2015 from 15% in 2005, gas volumes imported under oil-indexed contracts were replaced or renegotiated whereas oil-price indexation in Europe dropped to 30% from 78% in the same term (IGU).

8th November, 2016; 19:00-21:00; ESCP Europe's London Campus

Invited Talk on "The Global Crude Market & Its Pricing Challenges"

Speaker: Vyacheslav M. Mishchenko, Senior Vice-President - Russia and FSU, Argus Media

Crude prices have dropped notably in recent years and the effects are being felt worldwide. Falling prices and geopolitical tensions are some of the most critical challenges confronted by the industry. Over the last decade two key trends have surged: shale oil wells emerging across the US and demand for oil in the East soaring.

Crude can provide huge liquidity and excellent opportunities to profit in practically all market conditions despite the energy sector volatility. Today's energy executives need to successfully do business in an era of low oil prices.
