Opportunity for us all to drive the transition

Wow, what a 12 months that was. The last article I wrote for Energy Voice was in June and looking back now, it shows how little was understood about the impact Covid-19 would have on our lives. I suggested in that article that we were emerging from the crisis then. How wrong could I be?


Time to adjust and embrace new thinking

It’s fair to say 2020 has been an unprecedented year. Imagine how unlikely it would have seemed this time last year if someone had said wearing masks in a shop would now be essential, handshakes a distant memory and that we would need to brave the October chill outside the Chester Hotel and Dutch Mill to enjoy a drink?

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

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.
