Pandemic, Uncertainty and Turmoil: Energy in 2020
The current and global Coronavirus pandemic has hit the global energy markets hard, and we have to be prepared for continued uncertainties and turmoil at least for the rest of 2020. We have seen a total collapse in global oil demand followed by the largest coordinated cut in production the world has ever seen and with other parts of the energy industry is suffering severely also. What are the effects on the industry so far and how will activities within areas such as CCS fare in all of this?
