EVENT OVERVIEW F O S T E R I N G G L O B A L C O L L A B O R A T I O N F O R A F I T T E R H E AV Y O I L I N D U S T R Y Reports suggest by 2030 the global crude oil demand will be about 89 MMbbls/day, approximately 30% of that production is expected to come from heavy oil. Technological innovations, advancements in enhanced oil recovery methods and infrastructural upgrades are increasingly making it possible to explore and upgrade heavy and extra-heavy oil, enabling the oil and gas producing countries to meet increasing consumption, growing demand and production levels. Launched in 2006 in China, and thereafter travelling to heavy oil producing countries including Venezuela, Canada, United States of America and the United Kingdom, the World Heavy Oil Congress & Exhibition hosted its 9th edition in the Sultanate of Oman in 2018 and welcomed heavy oil professionals from over 41 countries. As a full stream event, WHOC 2019 will host 120 international speakers as part of its two-day Strategic Conference and three-day Technical Conference, providing heavy oil professionals with an exceptional opportunity for knowledge exchange and learning. Supporting the conference is a three-day International Exhibition where businesses will showcase their products, innovations and new technologies and services for the heavy oil industry. The Exhibition provides the industry with a dedicated platform to do business and network with existing and new clients.

There are people who say that Heavy Oil is a sun setting industry with the advent of renewables and there isn’t much to be had in heavy oil. Well you need to just be here to see the energy, vibe and attendance to actually see that people are hungry and thirsty and we want to make the best of the resources that we have been endowed with. Heavy oil is here to stay for a long time to come; and here, at the conference, we have been engaging, networking, and interacting on how to take back all the learnings and knowledge to continue to responsibly sustain heavy oil for decades to come.

09:00 – 09:20

Welcome Remarks By Congress Chairmen

09:20 – 10:00

Future-proofing the heavy oil sector: Encouraging global collaboration and cooperation and redefining strategies and policies on a governmental level Energy systems around the world are going through rapid transitions that will bring about important changes to the way we fuel our cars, heat our homes and power our industries. With the global energy demand increasingly pivoting towards clean energy and lower carbon emissions, renewable energy sources are expected to hold a larger share in the future energy mix currently dominated by oil and gas. • Analysts expect the global demand for oil will peak in 2030 at 108 million barrels per day. How are oil producers combating this today? How can smart technology support the industry in producing and upgrading heavy and extra-heavy oil in an environmentally-friendly way? How can governments enable innovation in their countries? • From agile fiscal contract agreements to boost IOC involvement to attracting investments from foreign investors, how are governments redefining strategies and policies in the current geopolitical climate? How do decisions by international bodies such as OPEC, MARPOL and IMO amongst others impact governmental policies? • How are governments supporting the midstream and downstream sectors? With policies favouring the molecule-sourcing upstream sector, how is this impacting the refining and upgrading of heavy oil? What change is required at the governmental and inter-governmental levels to support policies that will accelerate growth and enable refineries to upgrade infrastructure, invest in research and development and facilitate rapid technology innovation?

10:00 – 11:00

Exhibition Inauguration & Coffee

11:00 – 11:45

Producing more with less: Leveraging new technologies and realigning strategies to improve recovery in current economic climate • Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are leading the way in producing more with less, is the Middle East the new hub of heavy oil recovery? How could this change the way heavy oil is produced and traded globally? • With over 1 trillion barrels of potentially recoverable oil in existing mature fields and an approximate 4,600 billion barrels of heavy and extra-heavy crude, are we innovating technologically at the required pace? How are we leveraging existing technologies to improve recovery sustainably and in an environmental-friendly manner? • Workforces in the Middle East are exposed to light oil and gas operations. With increased heavy oil operations and EOR methods employed to increase recovery from mature fields, how are CEOs and business leaders training their workforce? Can a collaborative approach with producers in Canada, United States, Venezuela and other heavy oil producing countries enable a stronger, leaner workforce equipped? • With sanctions on Venezuela and Iran, how are producers meeting the demand for heavy oil from Asian countries? What kind of new deals and contractual agreements are in place to offer a win-win situation to producers and consumers? • Medium to long term outlook: what will the heavy oil industry look like in 10 years from today? What can we do today to ensure an upward movement on the growth graph?

STRATEGIC CONFERENCE SESSIONS DAY 1 - MONDAY 2 SEPTEMBER 2019 11:45 - 12:15

Committee perspective Bringing together the 2019 Technical and Advisory Committees for their insights on organising the World Heavy Oil Congress, selection of Technical Papers, and their perspective on the future of the heavy oil sector.

12:15 - 13:00

Attracting investments and securing project finances across the value chain: a holistic perspective in oil and gas • In 2018, Clean Energy Investments exceeded USD 300 billion. How has this impacted oil and gas projects? How much of this has been enabled by the perception pessimism against the industry? • Evaluating the breadth and depth of a diverse corporate strategy on attracting investments – from short cycle investments to project finance and IPOs. How have these unconventional approaches enabled attraction of investment, whilst effectively managing associated geopolitical and pricing risks? • Dissecting asset consolidation, M&A and JVs as an effective route to reshaping portfolios and diversifying into alternative markets and businesses • Increasingly, NOCs are adopting flexible means of structuring the monetisation of their upstream resources; simultaneously accelerating their downstream activities. How can host governments support IOCs and service providers with flexible regulatory policies to attract more investment into the country and enable more oil and gas projects to be undertaken? • Smart-financing: are cryptocurrencies the future of investments for oil and gas projects? How can oil and gas companies effectively utilise intelligent analytics and data to attract investments with calculated risks?

13:00 - 14:00

Lunch & Networking

14:15 - 15:00

The Economists’ Perspective: Hydrocarbons business in the age of geopolitical uncertainty, shifting alliances, trade wars and game changing digital strategies • Analysing the impact of accelerated boost in clean energy investments and decarbonisation regulations on the oil and gas sector with focus on talent attraction, capital investments and fiscal policies • Evaluating fiscal contracts against the backdrop of current geopolitical risks, trade wars and shifting alliances • From creating diversified portfolios to forging unconventional strategic alliances - digging deeper into how oil and gas companies can secure and future-proof their portfolios in a lower carbon world • China’s Belt Road Initiative will connect over 65 countries, collectively, holding up to 75% of the world’s known energy resources. How is this forecasted to affect supply and demand of hydrocarbons in the future, particularly for emerging markets?
