SPE Offshore Europe 2017

Published:  08 September, 2016

Embracing New Realities: Reinventing our Industry has been announced as the central theme for SPE Offshore Europe 2017 which will take place in Aberdeen from 5-8 September 2017.

Conference chair Catherine MacGregor (pictured), president, Reservoir Characterisation Group, Schlumberger, has urged the industry to think beyond cost efficiency and embrace new technologies, new types of business models and collaborations that lead to new sustainable ways of working as she launched the Call for Papers for the conference programme which will comprise more than 85 technical papers as well as keynote sessions.

“For some time now, the industry’s technical and financial performance has been challenged. Learning the lessons from the most severe downturn for the past 30 years, there is no doubt that the industry has to reinvent itself. The traditional industry response to market downturns, which has included halting exploration investment, decreasing development activity, pressing for price reductions throughout the supply chain, and letting talented people go, is no longer viable,” said Ms. MacGregor.

“With a central theme of ‘Embracing New Realities: Reinventing our Industry’ SPE Offshore Europe 2017 technical and keynote panel sessions, combined with business breakfasts and topical lunches, will provide a free-to-attend opportunity to debate, knowledge-share and take new courses of action that will shape the future of our industry.”
