Scots stands ‘carrying powerful message’

Scots stands ‘carrying powerful message’
SCOTTISH Energy Minister Jim Mather was impressed when he visited Scottish exhibitors at OTC yesterday.

SCOTTISH Energy Minister Jim Mather was impressed when he visited Scottish exhibitors at OTC yesterday.

He said: “The stands are just great and are carrying a very powerful message to the rest of the world.”

More than 350 delegates – most of them from Scotland – are on the annual trip to OTC organised by Munro’s Travel Group, of Aberdeen, and the Press and Journal. Mr Mather said: “The impressive attendance at this year’s conference clearly highlights Houston’s place as the global oil and gas procurement destination and also demonstrates the strength of the industry.

“I know that many Scottish firms are leaders in their fields and that OTC offers the ideal forum for showcasing their skills and expertise to a global audience. These are challenging times for all of us and its is important, now more than ever, that we look to maximise our resources, exploit new and more efficient technologies and . . . reduce the environmental impact on our planet.

“Oil and gas will be a critical component of our energy demands for many years to come. It would be complacent of us not to look to the future and the Scottish Government remains confident of the long-term future for the North Sea: one of Scotland’s greatest resources.

“We are fully committed to supporting our energy sector. Scotland has much to offer in terms of expert knowledge and experience and this is apparent in the companies exhibiting here this week.”
