Getting Back to the Office

With Many Ways to do it, the ‘What’ is as Important as the ‘Why and the ‘How’

“Your people and your business have proven over the last year that working remotely can be done and done successfully. Various studies have indicated that the productivity impact over the last year has ranged from slightly positive to only slightly negative. With the decision and then actual return to the office looming for many companies, the most important thing may be to ‘not get in your own way’ by imposing an approach that just doesn’t fit the reality your business has just experienced.”

An Unprecedented Variety of Options
for the UK North Sea

The North Sea, in all national sectors, is a mature petroleum basin. As both production and tax receipts slowly decline, Government agencies – led by the UK’s OGA – have increasingly sought to focus on the survival of both the basin’s physical infrastructure and their nations’ companies and professional competencies. This drive is exemplified by the UK’s 2016 Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) strategy, which has the force of law.”

Facing Up to the Energy Transition

Oil Company Strategies Compared

“As an earlier piece in this series pointed out, the Energy Transition means different things to different stakeholders.  This is certainly true within the energy industry, and that difference in perception is in turn giving rise to different responses from different energy industry participants.”

Aidan Joy, Director & Energy Transition Lead

The Energy Transition

Past, Present and Future

“Given the pressures and uncertainties involved, and in the context of our very limited ability to foresee key aspects of the future (as reinforced by the COVID-19 pandemic, a completely unpredicted and hugely impactful global event), it is reasonable to take the view that the Energy Transition means and will mean different things to different stakeholders.”
