Supply chain companies keen to be among the first to learn about business opportunities will benefit from advance information on major oil and gas projects by participating in OGUK’s Share Fair in Aberdeen on March 24.
As the leading representative body for the UK’s offshore oil and gas industry, OGUK’s popular business development event supports the growth of a resilient, competitive and diverse supply chain. This ambition combined with a drive to increase exports and grow the economy, is a key theme in the industry’s Roadmap 2035, which sets out a blueprint to deliver a net-zero oil and gas basin.
Matt Abraham, OGUK’s supply chain director, said:
“Share Fair is one of OGUK’s flagship events that focuses on promoting early engagement between suppliers and potential clients. This one-day event is an invaluable opportunity for suppliers to bring innovation, new solutions and fresh ideas to the attention of operator and major contractor companies planning contracts for future projects.”
Four different aspects of business development activities will be on offer at Share Fair. These include the highly popular one-to-one business meetings booked in advance with key decision-makers; major purchaser companies’ presentations of project overviews and anticipated contract opportunities and exhibition space where informal discussions with the wider supply chain community can take place.
Major purchaser companies who’ve already signed up to share their forward plans include BP, Chrysaor, CNOOC International, Dana Petroleum, Neptune Energy, Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited, Spirit Energy and TOTAL E&P UK Limited.
This year also sees the launch of a new format enabling suppliers to pitch new ideas focused on addressing key challenges in the sector. These sessions will be offered to OGUK members only and submissions which will be requested in advance of the event
