Event: Energy Technology Partnership Oil & Gas Diversification Workshop

Date: 26 January 2015

Location: Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen


The offshore wind market represents a big opportunity for Scottish SMEs who currently operate in the oil & gas sector. With three new wind farms recently consented and an imminent decision expected on the contract for the next wind farm, there has never been a better time to oil and gas specialists to look at diversifying and preparing their company to take advantage of this developing market.


This free event organised by the Energy Technology Partnership takes place the afternoon before the Scottish Renewables’ Wind & Supply Chain Conference ( Jan 27-28 ). It will inform attendees of the specific steps companies need to take to diversify into this new market. Who are the companies that you need to do business with? What does your company need to look like to be part of the supply chain? Which regulatory framework will apply to contracts? When will the forthcoming offshore wind developments be rolled-out ?


Industry speakers include: 

•Alan MacLeay, Engineering Director Renewables, Seaway Heavy Lifting

 Event:  Explore - The Oil and Gas Contractor Conference

Date: 26 February 2015

Location: Park Inn By Radisson Aberdeen


This year looks set to be a challenging year in the oil and gas sector, particularly for those working as contractors. A falling oil price has already seen day rate cuts and even redundancies, with more turbulence forecast in the months ahead.


However, the contractor remains a vital asset to the energy industry - and a global technical skills shortage means that we are likely to see the demand for contracted labour continue.


Against this landscape, Explore - The Oil and Gas Contractor Conference has been set up to consider the entire lifecycle of a contractor company, from the initial formation of a limited company to ongoing accountancy, financial planning, business banking, essential contractor insurance needs and finally a means of tax efficiently closing that company.


Come along and hear our panel of experts provide an up to date overview of contracting in 2015 as well as guidance on the most efficient and compliant means of operating.


Confirmed speakers include:

Allan Gardner - Aberdein Considine

Chris Cruickshank - FourM Accounting

Donald McNaught - Contractor MVLs

Steve Lewis - Caunce O’Hara

Stephen Hepburn - Clydesdale Bank
