Release date: 4 March 2013
Several top BP executives, including Group Chief Executive Bob Dudley, will be featured at IHS CERAWeek 2013, the international energy conference, taking place March 4-8 in Houston, Texas.
Dudley will give a keynote address Wednesday morning entitled, “Challenging Opportunities: The US, Russia and the World’s Energy Journey.” In his remarks, he will contend that while there is no shortage of opportunities for meeting the world’s rising demand for energy, those opportunities are in increasingly challenging environments, including unconventional oil and gas formations, deepwater fields and the Arctic. Accessing these resources will not only require energy investment on an “epic scale,” according to Dudley, especially in the United States and Russia, but also a welcoming regulatory and business environment for that investment. Long a leader at the energy frontiers, BP is aligning its business strategy to help the world make the most of these challenging opportunities.
