Warm welcome from oil and gas companies

The British Science Festival's main sponsors - BP and Shell - said they were delighted Aberdeen had been picked to host the event again.

The British Science Festival’s main sponsors – BP and Shell – said they were delighted Aberdeen had been picked to host the event again.

“BP is a long-standing supporter of Techfest in September – the north-east science festival – so it made perfect sense for the company to extend its support to the British Science Festival this year,” said Tim Smith, vice-president of communications and external affairs at BP North Sea.

“The festival will not only bring the science community together here in Aberdeen but it brings significant economic and social benefits for the city. It offers an opportunity for the company to take part in some of the scientific debates and demonstrate some of the applications of science and technology in the oil and gas industry.

“The British Science Festival offers an unrivalled opportunity to showcase some of the scientific talent and ingenuity that we have, both in Aberdeen and throughout Scotland.

“I am delighted that BP is supporting the return of this major festival to Aberdeen, after an absence of nearly 50 years, putting Scotland once again at the heart of scientific activity and debate.”

Glen Cayley, vice-president (technical) of Shell, said: “Science is fundamental to meeting many of the pressing challenges faced by society today, including sustainable energy.

“Partnering the British Science Festival is a great way to bring science to life for people in Aberdeen and across the UK.”
