Brand Finance Oil & Gas Workshop: Oil & Gas Brand Values in a 4.0 World

Monday 1 April 2019, 13:30 - 16:30

Event overview.

At the Brand Finance Oil & Gas Workshop 2019, the first workshop focusing on this sector, we will present the results of our annual brand valuation study into the world’s biggest oil and gas brands and share perspectives on the fourth industrial revolution and how it affects brand value.

In a time where 280 characters are enough to send the oil price spiralling, the need to remain stable in the Oil & Gas market is tantamount.  Conversely, digital disruption is integral to the future evolution of the Oil & Gas industry. Oil majors are diversifying operations into renewable energy technology, but continued demand for petroleum means the implications of Industry 4.0 will be even wider-reaching within existing operations, with some predicting fully autonomous drilling, autonomous inspection of pipelines, and rigless plugging of wells by 2025. Global Oil & Gas brands need to deliver stability on the one hand, and innovation necessary for future success on the other. Can the global oil majors balance the scales to do both?
