The Energy Institute Young Professionals Network (EIYPN) is set to host its first event of the year, addressing ‘The Future of the UKCS – Succeeding in a Volatile Market’.
Taking place on Tuesday 17 March 2015 at the Carmelite in Aberdeen, a number of speakers will debate the current state of the oil and gas industry and what measures are required amidst rising costs and a fall in production.
Walter Thain, Senior Vice President, Europe for Petrofac Offshore Projects and Operations, principal sponsor of EIYPN’s 2015 calendar of events, is one of the confirmed panel members, boasting 20 years’ experience in oil and gas. He said: “This event is sure to generate much debate and I am looking forward to addressing some of the current challenges, in the company of young professionals from across all disciplines in the energy industry.
“It is vital that the industry continues to collaborate as we actively seek to reduce costs and remain competitive; and so sharing our experiences and best practice is more important now than ever.”
Victoria Aston, Chair of the EIYPN, added: “Our first event of the year sold-out extremely quickly, highlighting the topic’s relevance at a time when there are many questions being asked about how we collectively go forward.
“Our panel members offer an eclectic mix of experiences and outlooks so we are very much looking forward to the debate this event will bring.”
