Tendeka: Growing our presence in the UKCS

06/05/2019

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

11/01/2019

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

03/01/2019

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.

Innovation must offer solutions says Tendeka CEO

30/08/2018

Like me, you will no doubt be overwhelmed by what seems like a torrent of new, self-proposed technology developments hitting the oil and gas market. But how many really deliver the sought after solutions to age old problems?

Piper Alpha: 30 years on, we still learn

02/07/2018

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.

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

12/03/2018

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?

07/03/2018

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.

Tendeka: Positive about oil and gas future

19/01/2018

Everyone knows the oil and gas industry has gone through a few very tough years. The North Sea was particularly susceptible being so dependent on oil and gas, with almost 200,000 people losing their jobs since the downturn began in 2014. That’s 39% of those employed in the industry out of work.

Opinion: 2018 – a year for recovery, reinvention and reawakening

03/01/2018

It is going to be better. 2017 is the year of the recovery. Demand will finally out strip supply, rig counts will come back. All things we heard this time last year and all things we are hearing now as we head to the end of this year. What happened? More importantly, what will happen?
