As energy demand rises globally, oil and gas will continue to supply about half of that demand and energy efficiency will become increasingly important.  The pace of improvement is likely to accelerate, reflecting the development and deployment of new technologies in the oil and gas business, as well as for personal transportation and power generation.  Ensuring access to energy for people around the world has been and will remain a great challenge.  Effective technology solutions to the energy challenges before us will naturally rely on modeling complicated processes and that in turn will lead to a strong need for high-performance computing.  The presentation will include ExxonMobil's global energy outlook through 2040.
