The 2016 UK Oil & Gas
14 April 2016 Aberdeen
The oil and gas industry is currently in crisis — supply exceeds demand which has resulted in oil prices falling to less than one third their value of 18 months ago, leading to postponement or cancellation of projects worldwide and restructuring as many staff are laid off.
Collaboration is vital to getting MER from the North Sea.
The Subsea UK organisation has urged the industry to turn talk into action now to safeguard the future of the £9 billion North sub-Sea sector. Neil Gordon, chief executive, (pictured) said: “If we don’t make changes now, if the oil price falls further, for longer, the subsea landscape will look very different in a year from now.
“We have an opportunity to define our future by truly embedding the behavioural change that will sustain our industry in the long-term and achieve the goals of Maximising Economic Recovery in the North Sea.”
Which is why Scottish Energy News is collaborating with the Energy Institute at the University of Aberdeen to hold the first ‘collaboration conference’ on how – in the national interest – we can help the UK oil and gas industry get MER out of the North Sea.
This event will be held on 14 April 2016 at the King’s College Centre at the University of Aberdeen.
A full programme and speaker details for both conferences will be published shortly – so watch this space for more information and for details on delegate prices and sponsorship/ exhibition packages.
