Offshore Energies UK confirms speakers for Economy & People Report breakfast launch and roadshows

31 May 2024

The leading body for the offshore energy sector, OEUK, launches its new Economy & People Report at a breakfast briefing in Aberdeen’s P&J Live venue sponsored by Deloitte on Tuesday 18 June.

The launch event will be followed by three roadshows around the UK. The first in Deloitte’s London office will be on June 20. The second will take place at Orbis Energy in Lowestoft on June 25 and the Hull roadshow will take place at Village Hotel on June 26.

The offshore energy sector and its people are at the heart of the country’s aims to improve energy security, cut emissions, drive economic growth and provide a springboard to capture a huge international market. OEUK gives a voice to over 400 organisations and businesses throughout the country, and member companies include those with an interest in offshore oil, gas, and increasingly carbon capture and storage (CCS), hydrogen and wind.

For 2024, OEUK is expanding its flagship Economic publication to produce its Economy & People report. The integrated insight comprises an update of the offshore sector’s workforce profile plus fresh data on the industry’s contribution to the UK economy.

As the General Election approaches, attendees will also have a chance to hear about the offshore energy sector’s manifesto and the plans to shape the low carbon energy system of the future. The event provides the ideal platform for people to hear about the investment opportunities, pathways to economic growth and actions required to unlock the offshore energy sector’s growth potential.
