HIGH PROFILE SPEAKERS TO TAKE CENTRE STAFE AT DUAL INDUSTRY REPORT LAUNCH
High-profile industry figures – including new UK North Sea entrants and prominent voices within the supply chain – are to top the bill at simultaneous breakfast briefings in London and Aberdeen at the launch of a key industry report next month.
The events, sponsored by Deloitte (Aberdeen) and White & Case (London), will look at opportunities and challenges facing the whole industry in 2019 – both for exploration and production companies as well as different areas of the supply chain.
Graham Hollis, senior partner for Deloitte’s Aberdeen office, said: “While pressures remain on the oil and gas sector, there is a strong sense of renewed optimism about the future of the UKCS after a challenging couple of years and I’d hope to see some of this optimism, as well as evidence of the industry’s resilience and willingness to adapt, reflected in this year’s Business Outlook.
“The continuing high levels of M&A activity indicate that the appetite to invest in the basin remains positive, while a persistent focus on innovative thinking and the use of new technologies will be vital to deliver the further operational efficiency improvements required to achieve MER.
"The Aberdeen Oil & Gas UK Breakfast Briefing provides an invaluable platform for the 2019 Business Outlook’s findings and allows the industry, and wider business community, to come together to consider the opportunities and challenges for the year ahead.”
