The Skills Landscape Report

Published:  12 April, 2019

Oil and gas skills requirements are changing at a rapid pace. Digitisation, internationalisation and the transition to a lower carbon future require re-skilling opportunities to be created and new roles to be defined.

Following on from the UKCS Workforce Dynamics Review which was published in May last year, OPITO commissioned RGU’s Oil & Gas Institute to produce a follow-on report to further define the sector’s requirements up to 2025. Action to develop skills is required now to support industry’s Vision 2035 and the wider energy diversification ambition.

The Skills Landscape report provides context for employers, governments, agencies, universities, vocational institutes and training providers to develop the necessary skills and capabilities to support the sector going forward, and will outline a number of actions needed to prepare the workforce for the future.

It will be launched at the Aberdeen Breakfast Briefing, Thursday 2 May 2019, 7.00 am to 9.30 am, Mercure Aberdeen Ardoe House Hotel, AB12 5YP. 

The event will be chaired by Deirdre Michie, chief executive, Oil & Gas UK.

The speakers are;

• Mark Cullens, director of strategic development, OPITO

• Paul de Leeuw, director, Oil and Gas Institute, Robert Gordon University

Following a short networking break the speakers will form a panel session which will discuss not only the findings from the report, but more importantly, the actions and next steps that will ensure  the right skills for the future. Speakers will be joined by;

• Ariel Flores, North Sea regional paesident, BP

• Sophie Ewen, OGTAP Apprentice sponsored by Chevron, representing the next generation
