New entrants and supply chain to take centre stage at key industry report launch

1 March 2018

The chief executive of a new entrant which recently expanded its footprint in the UK North Sea, and a leading voice for the oil and gas industry’s supply chain are to top the bill at the launch of a key industry report in Aberdeen next month (Tuesday 20 March).

Chief Executive Officer of Neptune Energy, Jim House, and Neil Sims, Vice President Europe CIS for Expro, will join Oil & Gas UK’s Chief Executive Deirdre Michie at the launch of the trade body’s 2018 Business Outlook report.

The report will look at opportunities and risks facing the whole industry in 2018, both for exploration and production companies as well as the different areas of the supply chain.

Commenting ahead of the report launch, Oil & Gas UK’s Stakeholder and Communications Director Gareth Wynn said: 

“Using the latest data provided by both operators and suppliers, Oil & Gas UK’s Business Outlook report will provide valuable insight into some of the most pressing questions facing industry as we move into 2018.

“We are delighted to have two such high profile industry leaders to speak alongside our CEO ensuring we can reflect the views of both operators and supply chain players in the UK oil and gas sector.”

Graham Hollis, office senior partner for Deloitte in Aberdeen, sponsors of the breakfast, said: 

“There has been an uptick in the fortunes of – and critically, confidence in – the UK’s oil and gas industry in recent months, so the launch of this year’s report comes at a really important time for the industry and our economy. The findings in Oil & Gas UK’s new Business Outlook will provide vital new information for stakeholders from across the sector as we seek to optimise the significant remaining potential of the UKCS.”
