Petroleum Economist and World Oil partner on SPE Offshore Europe 2019 coverage
Gulf Energy Information publications will work jointly on the daily newspaper at SPE Offshore Europe 2019
Leading energy industry publications Petroleum Economist and World Oil, both owned by Gulf Energy Information (Gulf), are to partner on publishing the official daily newspaper at SPE Offshore Europe 2019.
Held biennially in Aberdeen, SPE Offshore Europe is one of the continent's largest oil and gas events. Approximately 36,000 people and 900 exhibitors representing 130 countries attended its 2017 edition.
Earlier this week, the newly appointed conference chair of SPE Offshore Europe 2019 Michael Borrell, senior vice president, North Sea and Russia at Total, said the energy industry has to continuously demonstrate its excellence in order to maintain a 'license to operate'.
'Our license to operate: breaking through to excellence' will form the theme of the conference and exhibition, which will take place in Aberdeen from 3-6 September 2019. Borrell has been appointed conference chair and will lead a committee of international oil and gas industry leaders to develop the plenary, keynote and technical programmes.
"SPE Offshore Europe 2019 will allow the industry to come together and discuss what really matters," said Borrell. "It will be important to talk about keeping our costs low, pushing the boundaries of innovation and focusing on excellence in our operations.
"Offshore Europe presents a great opportunity for us to challenge ourselves in the North Sea basin. It's a harsh and demanding environment that has seen the industry overcome the odds and achieve feats of engineering that will go down in history. But we don't always get it right and we certainly don't have a monopoly on good ideas. I want OE2019 to not only look at what is going well in the North Sea but also to engage with the best of what is happening around the world. It is only by sharing best practice and being open to new ideas that we can truly break through to excellence."
