Tapping the world’s huge offshore resources will be vital to meet future energy needs, but the dynamics of offshore energy are changing fast:
• The shale revolution is asking new questions for investment in offshore oil and gas.
• Policy support and technology development are promising major cost reductions for the next wave of offshore wind projects.
This new report, in the flagship World Energy Outlook series, explores what these changing dynamics might mean for offshore energy activity in different scenarios to 2040. It also highlights the potential for greater integration and collaboration across different parts of the offshore energy sector.
