On March 3 CMS hosted a seminar on geopolitical and security risks facing the energy sector in our London offices. The seminar was part of Chambers & Partners’ GS seminar series and reflected on political and economic challenges energy companies face when entering new markets as well as on the cybersecurity threat that is much too real for strategically-important energy businesses. The talks highlighted some of the very real risks that energy companies are dealing with every day, and we are pleased to send you recordings of each of the sessions so you can watch them if you were unable to join us on the day. 

Arthur Snell is the Managing Director of PGI Intelligence, and was in the UK’s foreign service for 16 years in a variety of intelligence and diplomatic roles. Arthur discusses on some particularly challenging and ‘hot’ jurisdictions for energy, and more specifically oil & gas, companies. He highlights risk factors that each company entering a new market has to consider, analysed situations where those risk factors may be used in the company’s benefit and provided some very interesting insights in the political developments of today and the way they might affect the energy sector.
