In April this year Energy Voice called on the global energy sector to participate in its landmark research launched to mark 50 years in oil and gas exploration in the North Sea.
The project was launched in response to falling oil prices, which placed the UK and wider global energy market under pressure.
Energy 2050 – Securing our Future was launched at OTC in Houston and is in partnership with RGU, Burness Paull, EY, Douglas Westwood, Fifth Ring and the University of Oklahoma.
The first findings revealed leaders believed crude prices will bounce back above $100 by 2020.
The final research outcome will be discussed by a panel at Energy Voice’s event ahead of Offshore Europe which will take place on Wednesday, September 2.
The panel includes industry leader Sir Ian Wood, Derek Leith office managing partnerat EY Aberdeen and the firm’s UK head of oil and gas taxation and Offshore Europe co-chairman Michael
Industry leaders have already backed the event with UK Energy Minister describing the move as “critical” in ensuring a dialogue with the next generation of workers.
Oil and Gas UK’s Deidre Michie said the sector still has “much to offer the next generation who will play a vital role in securing and supporting the sector’s long-term future.”
Adam Zalewski, who is currently studying for a Master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering and is president for the SPE chapter at the University of Aberdeen, said it was important young people knew the door to the sector was still open.
Zalewski said: “The good years behind us have attracted high volumes of young people into the industry, many of which are in the university pipeline. Personally, I believe that the volume of candidates does not equal talent.
“The message I would like to see out of the industry is that there’s still a place for young people. You may not be able take on board all the good candidates, but if you will not take on the best talent, you will lose them forever.
“Talent is a limited resource and can’t be compensated for by massive recruitment drives in years to come.
“We need to be told there is still a place for us – that the industry has not shut the door.”
