Global Oil and Gas Industry Outlook, 2023

The global energy industry is undergoing an unprecedented transition, bringing exciting new growth opportunities to the oil and gas (O&G) industry.

However, shifting to a net-zero future for carbon emissions means many companies face pricing, energy security, and industry disruption struggles.As the industry moves to meet decarbonization and sustainability goals, The analyst has identified five key pillars of opportunity for the energy transition: Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS); Emissions Management; Automation, Autonomy, and Augmentation; Upstream Electrification; and Future Fuels.

Meanwhile, the main challenge of today’s O&G industry is balancing the transition to net zero while meeting the current demand for fossil fuels as efficiently and sustainably as possible. The competitive landscape for the future O&G industry is also changing, driven by innovation, market transformation, ambitious sustainability goals, and disruptive business models. The Frost & Sullivan oil and gas team specifically works to identify substantial transformative trends, innovations, and growth opportunities.
