PWC webcast: Can your company withstand $50 oil?


PwC's energy practice will hold a webcast Fit for $50 oil: Is your company in shape?, on November 19, 2014 at 1pm CST.

The discussion will explore the dynamic levers impacting the current price of oil, and introduce PwC's "stress test" that evaluates financial, operational, commercial, portfolio, and talent factors to reveal the indicators that signal the ability of a company to withstand a period of sustained low prices.

The recent decline in oil prices has reinforced two realities: commodity prices change and the energy industry is a cyclical business. When prices go down, companies are faced with different challenges and opportunities than the preferred $90+/bbl environment presents.

When considering a sub-$80/bbl outlook, many organizations evaluate their readiness and preparedness for even lower prices. For oil and gas companies to understand success or failure in this environment requires an understanding of the factors that are critical to the health of an oil and gas company. Having a strong grasp on these factors is dependent on the reference point, i.e. last year, anecdotes, gut-feel, real benchmarks, and other triggers.

With a firm hand on the readiness for a $50 oil scenario, companies can navigate the down-cycles and be positioned for the up-cycle.
