Technology Forum to help unlock future O&G developments
The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) and the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) joined forces to host a one-day industry event which showed how technology can advance and significantly lower the life-cycle cost of North Sea field developments.
The Technology Forum, held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on 22 August, focused on unlocking the UK’s remaining resources, particularly the future oil and gas developments being offered in the recently launched 30th Offshore Licensing Round.
The booked-out conference brought together operators, prospective investors and technology developers to meet and share knowledge on the latest developments in seismic, well construction, subsea tie-backs and standalone facilities.
More than 300 people attended the keynote presentation sessions and participated in the discussion and networking opportunities on offer.
This included over 35 exhibitors from SMEs to major service providers including PGS, Baker Hughes, a GE company, Amplus and Western Geco, showcasing innovative solutions, expertise and insights in the technology arena.
The audience heard from the OGA regarding the acreage and the opportunities available in the 30th Licensing Round. The OGTC discussed its ongoing projects and the opportunities to fund and support the development and deployment of new technology for the North Sea.
