ITF and Oil & Gas UK have organised the Technology Showcase 2016 which takes place in Aberdeen on March 9.
An oil and gas technology body will offer companies the chance to suggest solutions for cutting oil and gas production costs whilst nurturing production in Aberdeen next month. The Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF) will ask oil and gas firms to present innovative solutions at the Technology Showcase being held at the AECC on March 4. In partnership with Oil and Gas UK, the ITF will discuss present tech challenges in the UK continental shelf and offer them a chance to showcase their technologies.
