Oil & Gas UK, the trade association for the offshore oil and gas industry, is to hold this year’s annual conference in Aberdeen – for only the second time – on the theme of maximising production from the North Sea.
An OGUK spokesman said: “Very significant potential remains in the North Sea with up to 23 billion barrels of oil and gas left to recover.
“Working together to achieve the right tax, regulatory and cost regimes, we can emerge from the current challenges in better, leaner shape and in a position to again attract investment and maximise recovery of the UK’s oil and gas, sustain high quality employment and strengthen energy security for decades to come.” Speakers include:
Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive, Oil & Gas UK
Trevor Garlick, Regional President North Sea of BP and Oil & Gas UK co-chair
John Pearson, Group President Northern Europe and CIS of AMEC Foster Wheeler and Oil & Gas UK co-chair
Knut Thorvaldsen, Director General (acting) of the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association
Jo Peters, Secretary General of the Netherlands Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Association
Andy Samuel, Chief Executive of the Aberdeen-based Oil and Gas Authority, and:
Susan MacKenzie, Director of the Hazardous Installations group, Health and Safety Executive
