The SPE Oslo Annual Seminar - hosted by PwC and Oslo Børs - will this year focus on the financing of E & P companies and projects on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. After an introduction on regulatory changes in the oil sector, the various sources of financing available for the oil companies and projects are covered: From reserve based lending, to equity and bond financing. Lunch is then served at the top of the PwC building, with a grand view over down-town Oslo. After lunch the Norwegian market for license transactions is presented, as divesting licenses is also a way to secure financing of other projects. Securing financing is one thing, but still another issue is why E & P companies still end up in financial troubles. Lessons from the past are presented. As oil reserves are crucial for financing of the oil companies, the seminar continues on how to grow the oil reserves; with specific cases on tail end production and enhanced oil recovery.This session covers the key decisions that top management need to address at important milestones of project development. As a prelude to the panel debate, Rystad Energy will present facts on the cost explosion in the Norwegian oil industry. The panel is made up of representatives from both the oil service sector and the oil companies, as well as analysts that have followed the sector over many years. After the seminar a reception is held at Oslo Børs, where the Exchange meets with the seminar participants.
