Event to offer insight into changing industry as Offshore Energies UK enters first week

11 February 2022

The future of offshore energy will take centre stage at an event being held 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 look at how companies are working together to produce cleaner energies offshore. Many companies are already investing in renewables and developing plans which bring together the production of oil and gas, hydrogen and wind energy as well as capturing carbon at source and storing it deep underground in reservoirs through a process known as Carbon Capture and Storage.

It comes as Offshore Energies UK officially moves into its broadened scope, formally taking on its new name on Monday 14 February.

The event being held on Wednesday, 16 February will reflect on how the emerging offshoring energy industry is breaking down barriers and identifying opportunities for companies and people to work seamlessly across energies.

Chaired by Energy Voice Editor Allister Thomas, attendees will head from an expert panel which includes:

  • Arne Gurtner, Senior Vice President, Exploration and Production International, UK and 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 Geoscience & Energy Transition at Heriot-Watt University

OGUK CEO Deirdre Michie said:

“The companies we represent are changing and adapting to produce cleaner fuel, power and products to everyone in the UK.

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

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