Petrotechnics, a global company working at transforming frontline operational performance and lowering operational risk, has announced it will be principle sponsor of Oil and Gas UK’s inaugural Annual Conference. The Oil and Gas Industry Conference will be a two-day event held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre from 11th to 12th June 2014.

This sponsorship is part of Petrotechnics’ ongoing initiative to work with the UK’s most prominent industry associations to promote the sharing of ideas, lively debate and networking across the oil and gas ecosystem. Our commitment to improving safety and reducing risk across the industry has led to CEO Phil Murray’s active membership of the Production Efficiency Task Force (PETF) as part of the ongoing relationship with Oil and Gas UK.

Murray will present on ‘Exporting Technology from Aberdeen’ in a session entitled ‘Servicing the World – Demand for the UK’s Oil and Gas Supply Chain’. Petrotechnics has 25 years of experience in developing and exporting technical solutions from Scotland to the rest of the world. Its technology has been deployed in over 35 countries worldwide. The Industry Conference will be themed on Maximising Economic Recovery UK (MER UK), with the conference streams probing how we can develop a sustainable future for the UK oil and gas industry. Scotland’s first minister, Alex Salmond MSP, will be speaking at the event alongside Sir Ian Wood and the Rt. Hon Danny Alexander MP, chief secretary to the treasury and member of parliament for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey. Rt Hon Alexander will speak on ‘Strength, stability, innovation: the future of oil and gas in the UK’.

In addition to this line up, the two day event will allow attendees to hear from industry experts, government and regulators on topics such as commercial issues and access to finance, data management, energy policy, environment, exploration, legal, operations, safety and skills and employment.

Petrotechnics’ CEO Phil Murray said, “With a 25 year history, we are proud to sponsor this inaugural conference. The conference is happening at a pivotal time for the UK oil and gas industry with the future of the industry dependent on a new wave of innovation both at home and overseas.
