Change is the New Constant

Join us for a Live 30 minute Webinar followed by a 15 minute Q&A Session.

In an increasingly volatile and uncertain environment, oil and gas companies worldwide are facing relentless pressure to improve returns even as they encounter strong challenges like softening markets, mandates for energy alternatives, and regulatory barriers.

Traditional business planning practices may limit oil and gas companies from fully leveraging their opportunities and adapting to these rapidly changing conditions.

This webinar explores the evolution of quantitative portfolio analysis, as applied to oil and gas strategy development, capital allocation, and merger and acquisition activity.  Paul will highlight how the market environment has driven analysis needs over the past several decades and show how portfolio analysis techniques may be used in better positing for an uncertain future.
