Breakfast event seeks to strengthen UK energy industry resilience

Leaders in the energy industry will come together to discuss the UK’s security of supply and the global response to providing responsible, clean and reliable sources of energy in light of the war in Ukraine at an event hosted by Offshore Energies UK in Aberdeen next week.

The breakfast event, ‘Energy Resilience: Plan for secure, UK supplies to power the transition’ will be held from 7am to 9.30am on Tuesday, May 17,  at P&J Live and will bring together key operators, supply chain and data analysts.

Sponsored by Deloitte, keynote speakers and panellists include Katy Heidenreich (supply chain & operations director at Offshore Energies UK), Andrew Hockey (CEO of IOG), Findlay Anderson (vice president and general counsel – Oilfield Equipment at Baker Hughes) and Stuart White (operations director at Blaze Manufacturing).

The event, chaired by Natalie Coupar, communications director at Offshore Energies UK, will offer an overview of the impact on current and future activities from a UK, European and global perspective and analysis will include energy supply and demand, security and other resilience areas, such as the impact of sanctions and cyber-security concerns.

Mark Wilson, OEUK’s health, safety and environment director, commented:

“The global response to the tragic war in Ukraine has underlined the importance of energy security and the need for responsible, clean and reliable sources of energy for our country: a balanced transition is key as we look to secure a bright future for our industry and its workforce. 

“We need long-term confidence in the UK, allowing us to make major investment decisions in both oil and gas production and new low carbon technologies, including Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), hydrogen and offshore wind. “This sector is essential in helping provide the UK with cleaner oil and gas while underpinning the energy transition – the two are inextricably linked – and we need to be resilient in these challenging but ambitious times, ensuring we are prepared for the near and long-term future, whatever it may bring.

“We look forward to welcoming delegates to the event which will include analysis of energy supply and demand, providing people with the understanding needed to build resilience into their own work environment whilst ensuring focus is maintained on delivering the energy transition.”
