Opportunities in offshore repair and maintenance services will be the focus of an oil and gas industry event in Aberdeen next week.
Oil and Gas UK’s Share Fair Spotlight will give supply chain businesses the chance to meet representatives of a number of major companies to learn about their forthcoming North Sea projects.
The event is being held at the industry body’s offices, in Market Street, on Tuesday.
Stephen Marcos Jones, Oil and Gas UK’s director of business excellence, said: “We are delighted to have the participation of representatives from major purchasing companies including Chrysaor, Nexen Petroleum UK Limited and Stork, who will be on hand to help suppliers gain deeper insights into the expertise, services and goods they require for forthcoming offshore projects.
“Maintenance and repair are key themes in the industry-wide drive to improve production efficiency, with companies focusing on new ways to increase the reliability and safety of installations on the UK continental shelf to ensure they are fit for purpose and can operate on demand to the required performance standard”.
Tuesday’s event follows the success of a series of sell-out Share Fair Spotlights introduced last year by the industry’s Efficiency Task Force (ETF) to promote co-operative working across the sector to improve efficiency and restore competitiveness to the North Sea.
It is the first in a series of similar events planned for this year, with future topics including well cost reduction and production efficiency. Oil and Gas UK’s annual flagship Share Fair event will take place in Aberdeen on November 1.
