Hundreds set to attend oil and gas event
Hundreds of people will attend a north-east recruitment event focusing on opportunities in oil and gas.

Hundreds of people will attend a north-east recruitment event focusing on opportunities in oil and gas.

The exhibition is aimed at workers with skills transferable from other industries, plus people already working in energy.

Preparations are being made for up to 1,000 visitors for the event at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Thursday, April 25.

It is being organised by event-management firm cushydoos, supported by the Press and Journal recruitment team.

Cushydoos director Karen Reid said: “There are 13 exhibitors signed up at the moment and I think we’ll have up to 20 by the day. We are looking at signing up a couple more contractors, a subsea company, another vessel/shipping company and a service company or two. We are aiming for a real cross-section of the industry to be represented on the day.”

Mrs Reid said nearly 500 people had already registered to attend, 80% of them from outwith the north-east.

She said many were armed forces personnel, while others were from the central belt/Fife area.

Exhibitors already signed up include Nexen Petroleum UK and Stork.

Archie Kennedy, managing director of Nexen Petroleum UK, said: “Nexen’s growing presence in the North Sea guarantees challenging, long-term careers for experienced professionals and new entrants alike. As the second-biggest producer in the North Sea, we’re looking forward to sharing our exciting story with attendees at the opportunities in oil and gas event.”

Stork operations director Mike Duncan said: “The UK oil and gas industry, and companies like Stork, needs more people to support the transformation of our ageing energy infrastructure. This will only be achieved through active engagement, meaningful dialogue and a concerted effort to resolve the short and medium-term skills challenges in the sector.”
