Oil and gas in the spotlight

It’s one of the key drivers of the global economy, but what does the future hold in store for the oil and gas industry?

It’s one of the key drivers of the global economy, but what does the future hold in store for the oil and gas industry? This question is one of many to be tackled at a high-profile conference organised by London Metropolitan Business School.

The ‘Oil and Gas Modelling’ conference takes place at London’s Energy Institute on 29 October, and will see world-leading researchers and practitioners come together to consider the challenges facing the industry over the coming years.  

Global experts will share ideas and present the latest academic research at the event, which highlights London Met’s position at the cutting edge of industry thinking.

The conference has been jointly organised by London Met’s Centre of International Business Sustainability (CIBS) and the Research Centre for Energy Management at ESCP Europe Business School. 

CIBS, based in London Metropolitan Business School (LMBS), is one of the world’s leading authorities on energy issues.

Speaking from the 40th Anniversary of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in Vienna, the Director of CIBS, Dr Vlasios Voudouris, said: “As the Director of such a world-leading research centre, I feel it is vital for us to lead from the front. 

“Through external collaborations such as this conference, CIBS celebrates the high-impact work we do, which complements our world-leading scholarly contribution to oil and gas modelling.” 
The conference is a prime example of the top class work produced by LMBS, a business school in which students are exposed to the latest research and insight from the heart of industry. 

“CIBS also runs a Doctoral Training Programme and the MSc in Sustainable Business, Energy and Finance as a way of complementing academic work with distinctive educational offerings for our students,” added Dr Voudouris. 

The Centre for International Business Sustainability has recently been involved in a number of high profile projects, such as an event at Chatham House on the future of the oil and gas industry, attended by former BP CEO Lord Browne. Dr Voudouris is also leading a report for the Greek government on investment opportunities in oil, gas and electricity. 

The Oil and Gas Modelling conference takes place on Monday 29 October 2012. More information can be found here
