Scotwind will see billions of pounds invested into Scotland’s offshore wind supply sector, although, for Hamish, the news came just as he was trying to have lunch.
There’s only one place to go in the global energy conversation this week and that’s the unfolding humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
In this week's Energy Voice Out Loud podcast, the team look at the huge downgrade in reserves and sizeable valuation cut for the Mariner field in the east of Shetland, in what is another blow to the North Sea after a flurry of issues in recent months.
The deal’s been done and, as the dust settles on the Glasgow Climate Pact, EV Europe editor Allister Thomas and James Close, head of climate change at NatWest Group, dig into the detail.
Energy and agriculture: Two industries which may not naturally go hand in hand. But they are critical in meeting society’s needs for food and fuel and both are at a crossroads in tackling carbon emissions.

Allister’s back from Glasgow having been ejected from the Scottish Press Awards (what do you mean Jackie Bird hasn’t listened to the Energy Voice podcast?).
Energy Voice Out Loud, under the tender new management of Allister, took a look at the big numbers coming out of OGUK’s big report this week. Imports are rising, it seems, but politics remain a tangled web. Are companies too scared of allegations of greenwashing to make the case for the energy industry?
This week, the team reflects on the shocking and fatal explosion on a Pemex platform in the Gulf of Mexico. Allister asks whether the to-ing and fro-ing in Mexican oil policy could have played a part.
On this week’s Energy Voice Out Loud the team kick off discussion with Nicola Sturgeon’s calls for a review of oil and gas licences, including the controversial Cambo project in the West of Shetland. Will there be a U-turn from Boris Johnson or will this political football be kicked into the long grass?
The energy sector must continue to expand and evolve if key climate targets are to be met. Young people will be key to driving this change, filling tens of thousands of energy roles in the coming decades.
On this week’s EVOL, we talk about the Pemex “ring of fire” in the Gulf of Mexico, which has raised some serious environmental questions. We then move on to Hamish’s tale of the “mud explosion” in the Caspian, which has the team scratching their heads.
On this week’s EVOL, Mark’s talking passports… Nope, not about Brexit.
This week, Hamish, Ed and Mark discuss the latest entry of an oil giant into the bidding process for ScotWind, as TotalEnergies planted its flag in the … seabed… With just a month before the application window closes, we mull whether some oil giants might be conspicuous by the absence.
There’s no other place to start this week than with the news of the Velesto Naga 7 oil rig sinking off Malaysia. Our man in Asia, Damon Evans, takes us through the events. No one was hurt, but will there be an open inquiry? And how will the rig be recovered?
This latest episode of the EVOL X podcast is dedicated to “Building a Baseline”, the very first report into the state of diversity and inclusion in the UK oil and gas sector.
Mark and Ed are away, so the digital journalists will… play…?
On this week’s EVOL, in association with the EIC, the team give their thoughts on news that Oil and Gas UK – the North Sea’s leading trade body – is considering a rebrand, potentially following others in taking fossil fuels out of the name as part of their net zero push.

Should the government stump up some of the cash it was going to pay out for decommissioning ahead of time, in order to get the ball rolling? Decom North Sea thinks so, although other opinions are available. At a time when the national debt is hitting record levels, and a number of sectors are calling for help, the government may not want to help out the oil and gas industry.
This week the EVOL team watch the movements of Greenpeace’s Esperanza vessel as the activist group attempts to catch out oil companies polluting in the North Sea.
