IOCs and NOCs can redefine their long-term value strategy for existing fossil-fuel (hydrocarbon) portfolios or expand into non-hydrocarbon portfolios depending on unique geographic opportunities. There are two main moves that IOCs and NOCs can make to respond to energy transition: Reduce one’s own emissions through decarbonization and more efficient operations and act where energy transitions create new, positive opportunities for oil and gas companies, such as investing in renewables,
