The oil and gas industry has always been and continues to be one of the most high-tech, knowledge-intensive and innovative industries in the world. However, in the context of a global geopolitical instability, companies are facing a number of issues, including a slowdown in global energy demand, stronger competition against the backdrop of an acute shortage of investments, fixed assets aging and a decrease in the mineral resource base, as well as the need to introduce alternative energy sources. Only an integrated approach will help to cope with these issues.
