Energy Pricing Reform and the Design of Compensation Schemes in MENA

In collaboration with the Kuwait Programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) we are holding a one-day Seminar on 31st March 2017.

The aim is to bring together a small group of key senior figures from governments, oil companies, the financial industry, and academia to discuss important and topical issues affecting energy pricing reform in MENA. Attendance is by invitation only and the event is closed to the press.

The Seminar will focus on four main themes:

1. Energy pricing reform: the MENA experience so far

2. Energy pricing reform and impacts on industrial competitiveness

3. Energy subsidies and the deployment of renewables in resource rich countries

4. The design and implementation of compensation schemes

New Africa Oil & Gas Programme

The Oxford Institute for Energy Studies has launched an Africa Oil and Gas programme.

Led by Senior Research Fellow, Luke Patey, the programme seeks to provide an in-depth understanding of the current trends shaping Africa’s energy industry, from a national and regional perspective, and deep-look analysis on the main political, socio-economic, and security risks facing the oil and gas industry in African countries. The programme is a distinctive research platform for industry, government, academia and non-governmental and civil society groups to access high quality independent research on the key developments, opportunities and challenges in Africa oil and gas.

Initial research activities of the Africa Oil and Gas programme will focus on three areas:

East Africa and the next frontier – a look at exploration and development activities in African countries that have recently entered the oil and gas scene

After the boom – analysis on how Africa’s large producers are managing a lower price environment

Asian players – disentangling the strategies and impact of Chinese, Indian, and other Asian oil and gas investors in Africa

For further information on the Africa Oil and Gas programme at the Oxford Institute of Energy Studies please write to Luke Patey or Bassam Fattouh.
