The events of 2020 require no explanation. They have changed life for the last seven months and continue to do so.
Digitalisation offers considerable opportunities for the energy industry as it moves towards achieving 2050 net zero targets, which include increasing efficiency and decreasing costs.
The clock is now ticking to reach the target of Net Zero by 2050 in the UK (2045 in Scotland). The oil and gas industry is a critical part of this transition to net zero and has the potential to be the leader in developing the solutions which will unlock a new, low carbon economy. This pivotal role of the oil and gas industry was clearly recognised recently by the Scottish Government with the £62 million Energy Transition Fund to support net zero projects.
North-east entrepreneur Jeanette Forbes was recognised for her significant contribution to the UK offshore energy sector in a “virtual” awards ceremony tonight.
The Offshore Achievement Awards (OAA) is gearing up for its first ever virtual awards ceremony, allowing finalists and winners to be celebrated by industry on Friday, August 14, 2020.
The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen has awarded £27,500 to 21 students as part of its 2020 bursary programme.
With the transition to net zero gathering momentum, the importance of innovative subsurface technology and expertise to maximise economic recovery and diversify the energy mix will be the focus of two upcoming SPE Aberdeen events.
The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section will host a talk this Wednesday focusing on the oil and gas industry’s future in a net zero world.
As momentum grows for Vision 2035 and the energy industry strives towards net zero, it is widely recognised that a key part of achieving this will be through the existing workforce; retaining and retraining will create a more flexible, multi-skilled and technologically-aware workforce.
This month sees the launch of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen’s annual student bursary awards with up to £30,000 available in total.
As the new session of SPE activities is about to start it is a time of reflection, renewal and anticipation, and I am very much looking forward to taking on the mantle as Aberdeen Section Chair for the year ahead.
The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section has awarded its biggest ever total of bursaries - £29, 500 - to the winning students in its 2019 student bursaries programme.
The Aberdeen section of the Society of Petroleum Engineers has handed out £20,000 in bursaries to students in oil and gas-related subjects from across Scotland.
With just under two weeks until the 2016 Offshore Achievement Awards (OAA), the trophy which will be presented to winners on the night has been revealed.
The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen section has elected Ian Phillips, chief executive of the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC), as chairman.
Speakers from a number of major oil companies will be taking part in a bi-annual conference that examines the latest developments in reservoir monitoring and flow control in oil and gas projects.
The 2016 Offshore Achievement Awards will include a number of new categories to coincide with their 30th anniversary.
