Energy Resource Classification and Management Systems – Current and Future State
July 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm AESTAUD15 – AUD77
Presented by: Barbara Pribyl
This talk will discuss the current state of the principal resource classification and management systems and thoughts on their future direction. These systems include the SPE Petroleum Resource Management System (PRMS) and Storage Resources Management System (SRMS), the United Nations Framework Classification for resources (UNFC) and the evolving United Nations Resource Management System (UNRMS). Specifically, how they apply to the broader energy and storage sector to facilitate informed and reliable policy and investment decisions.
The last few years has seen improvement in the market fundamentals for the petroleum industry and merger and acquisition activity has increased. However, market volatility and project investment trepidation are expected to continue as the world adjusts to the ‘new normal’ of the societal, environmental, and economic impact of living with COVID, geopolitics and the challenge of maintaining our standard of living and a healthy planet. Governments and organisations around the world are announcing net-zero emission targets and other policy initiatives for reaching sustainable development goals. These targets have broad implications for the energy sector. Pressure to address environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) issues increasingly impacts the commercial viability of projects and their corresponding chance of development. Moreover, the industry will need to demonstrate they are developing in sustainable manner and provide credible, measurable, and transparent data to maintain legitimacy.
