Is there a future in the UKCS?


I was born in 1976. It was a decade that was not only phenomenal but also transformational for the oil and gas industry.


A digital reality for oil and gas


Good data analysis can have a direct impact on operational efficiencies and the potential reduction in operating costs as well as improved production and hydrocarbon recovery.

Tendeka: Growing our presence in the UKCS


With North Sea oil and gas production reaching its highest point in the last seven years, it is no surprise that the last year has been Tendeka’s strongest in the UK to date.


Stoking the fire of innovation in the oil and gas service sector


Like the temperature over the past three months, we have seen a dramatic plunge in the oil price index. So much so, it has left many asking if the oil and gas industry is suffering from a slight touch of winter flu, or, as others perceive, the start of a life-threatening illness.


What now? It’s all in the recovery factors


In last year’s end of year opinion piece for Energy Voice, I talked about the realignment of the oil and gas industry. I opined that the sector is not in a cycle as we know it, but rather, in a shift of mentality to one that is nimbler, more innovative in attitude with plenty of upside potential.

Thirty years on as we remember the Piper Alpha disaster and the 167 lives that were lost, it is a poignant time to recognise the positive safety changes in the years since and how these principles need to be passed from one generation to the next.


Wireless technology gets smart


Can you remember life without your smart phone? Do you remember the days when you had to get behind a desk, log in and dial up to access the wealth of information on the internet?

Women outnumbered men at Tendeka’s top table


For Annabel Green, it is events such as a 20-year reunion with former colleagues or seeing young people in the bars of Aberdeen whom she can remember being carried into the office by their proud new parents, that shows the reality of time passing.


Are we experiencing the UK North Sea’s re-awakening?


Is 2018 the year of the UK North Sea revival? With Brent crude surpassing the $71 a barrel threshold in January this year – the first time since 2014 – positivity is re-emerging. It seems almost daily I read of a new operator acquiring a field in the UK North Sea or an established player reinvesting, such as Shell giving the go-ahead to redevelop the Penguins field, the largest investment in the North Sea in six years.
