Friday, Nov 17, 2017
The leading trade body for the UK’s offshore oil and gas industry, Oil & Gas UK, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ Aberdeen branch.               

The agreement formalises the longstanding relationship between the two industry organisations.

Signatories Oil & Gas UK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie and SPE Aberdeen Chairman Ian Phillips pledged to work together on selected new technology-based events. This will provide an important platform for industry to share case studies, highlighting the value that innovative technology is bringing to the exploration and production lifecycle.  

Commenting, Oil & Gas UK chief executive Deirdre Michie said:

“This is good news for the future of our industry and good news for the future generations of engineers who will work in the UK Continental Shelf.

“Oil & Gas UK and SPE Aberdeen have cooperated informally for many years; this MoU reflects our mutual desire to develop a closer relationship with each other.

“With focus continuing to shift towards society’s use of technology, Oil & Gas UK is keen to work with partners including SPE Aberdeen to achieve a more co-ordinated approach and ensure that events are leveraged to the best effect for the UK oil and gas industry.

“Whilst our plans are in their initial stages, our respective members can look forward to reaping the benefits of this partnership, which will include the joint delivery of relevant technical events.”

SPE Aberdeen Chair Ian Phillips said:

“Formalising our long-standing relationship with Oil & Gas UK will enable us to better access the operator case studies that can make our technical conferences much more relevant to our members.

“We envisage collaborating to bring this benefit to our existing events – and to develop new industry-driven technology conferences that can really make a difference”
