About the Event
Oil is the lifeblood of modern civilisation and is one of our most critical commodities. However, the price of oil is volatile, with brent crude having reached lows of $20 per barrel and highs of $120 per barrel in the last five years alone.
What are the factors that dictate these huge price fluctuations and how does the price of oil affect exploration and development activity in the oil and gas industry? And what effect does this have on the number of upstream oil and gas insurance claims?
This presentation considers these questions and sees what patterns develop between oil price, industry activity and the quantity of upstream oil and gas claims.
Please note that this is an in-person event held at Lloyd's Old Library in London. You will not be able to attend virtually.
