The UK Government’s Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth, Rt Hon Claire Perry MP, will join OGUK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie, Neptune Energy Chairman Sam Laidlaw and Oil and Gas Authority Chief Executive Andy Samuel, to speak to this year’s conference theme, ‘An Industry in Transition’.
Leading industry figures booked to speak on the first day of the event include Torgrim Reitan, Equinor’s Executive Vice President, Gordon Ballard, IOGP’s Executive director, Jean-Luc Guziou, Total E&P’s Managing Director, and Sian Lloyd Rees, UK Country Manager at Aker Solutions.
Commenting on the line-up, Oil & Gas UK chief executive Deirdre Michie, said:
“The UK’s offshore oil and gas industry never stands still. Our impressive line-up of speakers promises thought provoking insight into how our industry needs to focus, innovate and evolve as we look to the future.
“We know that domestic production of oil and gas will play a key role in our energy mix for many years to come. Our question is about how we can be a sustainable sector in the safest, smartest and most efficient ways, with the shared aim of adding another generation of productive life to the industry.
“This is encapsulated in Vision 2035 – industry’s ambition for the future and we look forward to reflecting on the people, business processes and diversification opportunities we need to unlock to make this a reality.”
