You are invited to attend a conference that we are holding in April at the University of Aberdeen at which we will consider the Issues in Delivering MER within the new environment in which the UKCS is now operating. 

We are confident that we have created the very first conference of this kind, where a range of speakers from academia and industry will debate the major legal, organisational and technical issues, many of which have not yet been discussed or debated in sufficient detail, and are not yet common knowledge.

The conference will offer you significant opportunity to hear from key experts, network with fellow colleagues and get involved in the key areas of discussion.

Find out full details and register for the event here. Upon registration we will send you out a full schedule.
