In the final video on National Oil and Gas skills week, Energy Voice spoke to Jeanette Forbes about her experience as a woman in the industry. A qualified systems engineer, she is chief executive and founder of the PCL Group. National Oil and Gas Skills Week will see around 50 events take place across the UK.
In the second part of our video series for the National Oil and Gas Skills Week, Energy Voice spoke to former soldier Duncan Harwood. The 34-year-old made his transition into the oil and gas industry after fulfilling tours in Iraq, Northern Ireland and the Falklands with the Royal Engineers.
Oil and gas students have one final chance to enter into an industry wide competition and meet Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing and more than 150 senior representative from across the industry. In the run up to skills week Opito has been engaging with people across the industry by giving them the chance to submit a photo with the caption #Iamoilandgas when posting a photo on Facebook or Twitter.
The new managing director of Opito said there are “significant parallels” between the RAF and the oil and gas industry.
