20 September 2017 - 21 September 2017 at China World Summit Hotel, No.1 Jianguomenwai Avenue, Beijing, 100004, China

Join us in 2017 as 500 business leaders from energy (upstream, LNG/midstream, downstream, infrastructure, renewables, services), finance and investment gather to discuss the future of China

The 2017 China Energy Assembly is China’s most international energy meeting, with participation from Chinese and international energy (oil, gas, LNG, coal and alternative energy) companies, financiers and investors. The event will identify and discuss (i) the role China will play in tomorrow's global energy industry, (ii) the future plans of Chinese NOCs and SOEs, (iii) new corporate development and joint venture opportunities in China, (iv) emerging upstream, midstream, LNG, downstream and energy infrastructure investment opportunities, (v) avenues for China's energy industry to grow internationally, (vi) the growth and evolution of the Chinese private energy sector, (vii) inbound and outbound M&A in China, and (viii) the various methods for accessing China's capital markets. The event will promote and connect the pioneers and leaders of China's energy industry.

The event is held under Chatham House Rule and with simultaneous dual translation (Mandarin and English) for the benefit of local and international attendees.

We will discuss the following key topics:

The Future of Chinese Gas – demand outlook; reforms to drive new gas investment and increase domestic supply; growth potential for independent gas companies and LNG traders/importers; new integrated gas projects on the horizon; expected breakthroughs in unconventional gas development

The Future of Chinese Oil – who is still investing in China’s upstream; what returns are achievable in a low-price environment; new challenges for mature fields with declining production; can IOCs still compete in Chinese E&P; has oil become a short-term energy security strategy for China?

The Growth of Renewable Energy in China – new investment opportunities for national and international companies; are current industry growth rates sustainable; will the economics work when subsidies stop; challenges of competing against coal; and the role of the private sector in progressing a green agenda.

Outbound and Inbound M&A and A&D – analysis on recent transactions involving Chinese buyers and sellers; when will Chinese NOCs and SOEs come back to the markets as buyers; do services companies have to merge to survive; and private sector growth strategies in China and overseas.

Energy Infrastructure Opportunities – new infrastructure plays (FLNG, FRSU, FPSO, LNG import); successful strategies returning investment; will NOCs and SOEs continue to divest their infrastructure assets; who will finance new developments; and increasing gas demand by ensuring third party access to LNG infrastructure.

Government Policy Changes and Reform – achieving the goals of the 13th five-year plan; possible foreign access to domestic opportunities; has the ‘One Belt One Road’ strategy been successful; impact of current geopolitics on Chinese trade and investment; and will carbon trading be successful in reducing emissions for COP21?

"I don’t know of any other conference where you can meet such a large panel of Private and Public, Chinese and Foreign Oil & Gas players. I strongly recommend such opportunity to network and acquire what the sector needs to learn each year." 
Jean-Marc Guyot, Chairman and CEO, ENGIE China

"As always the China Assembly delivers as what the tin can says. Global energy issues debated underpinned by the hard-nosed reality of local context. I was particularly impressed with the mix of NOCs, supermajor and independents leadership attending together with thought leaders from the policy makers and research institutes in China.” 
Ling Lai, Chief Commercial Officer, Roc Oil

“Highly appreciate your involving SPT and myself in such a great event. It is our pleasure and honour to contribute our little share to this highly successful Assembly. It is becoming an annual landmark event among all the Oil & Gas related conferences of this kind in China. People really like and enjoy it very much. Congratulations!” 
Jin Shumao, Executive Director, SPT Energy
