Event providing insights into the changing industry as Offshore Energies UK enters week one

The future of offshore energy will be the focus of an event to mark the first week of the UK’s leading integrated energy trade association, Offshore Energies UK.

Senior industry figures will join OEUK CEO Deirdre Michie to discuss how companies are working together to create cleaner offshore energy. Many companies are already investing in renewable energy and are developing plans that combine the production of oil and gas, hydrogen and wind power, and capturing carbon at source and storing it deep underground in reservoirs through a process called carbon capture and storage.

It comes as Offshore Energies UK formally moves into its enlarged division and officially adopts its new name on Monday 14th February.

The event, taking place on Wednesday 16 February, will reflect on how the burgeoning offshoring energy industry is breaking down barriers and identifying opportunities for businesses and people to collaborate seamlessly across energy boundaries.

Chaired by Allister Thomas, Editor of Energy Voice, attendees will be guided by a panel of experts that will include:

  • Arne Gurtner, Senior Vice President, Exploration and Production International, UK & Ireland, Equinor

  • Sian Lloyd Rees, UK Managing Director, Aker Offshore Wind Ltd

  • Alexandra Thomas, Managing Director, Neptune Energy UK

  • James Bream, CEO, Katoni Engineering

  • John Underhill, Professor of Geosciences and Energy Transition at Heriot-Watt University

OGUK CEO Deirdre Michie said:

“The companies we represent are changing and adapting to produce cleaner fuels, energy and products for everyone in Britain.

“Our people and communities add value to the UK economy and are also a driving force in helping the Government meet its climate targets, while underpinning the UK’s energy security with our ongoing oil and gas production.

“The increasing integration of the offshore energy landscape is good news for the supply chain and for people working in the sector, and will ensure the UK continues to have a secure, affordable and increasingly low-carbon energy supply.”
