PILOT Share Fair Helps the Oil and Gas Industry Realise Potential

A record -breaking 1,500 delegates will attend the 2012 PILOT Share Fair at Aberdeen’s Exhibition and Conference Centre today (November 7). The event is organised by Oil & Gas UK and sponsored by EnQuest and supporting sponsors, Sparrows and YOKOGAWA. Malcolm Webb, Oil & Gas UK’s chief executive, said: “The offshore oil and gas industry, headquartered here in Aberdeen, is the UK’s largest industrial investor and a powerful engine for growth in the economy.

“The PILOT Share Fair allows major purchasers from this vital UK industry to meet the multitude of contractors and suppliers drawn from all the regions of Britain. For these contractors and suppliers the event provides advance information about a vast range of projects and invaluable opportunities to establish contacts with key decision makers. The major purchasers are able to meet a wide cross section of the supply chain and raise the profile of their business and the contracts on offer.”

The forward plans of 18 major players will be described in a series of presentations at Share Fair. Delegates can also benefit from one-to-one sessions providing valuable insights into the technology and expertise required for future projects. The new PILOT Share Fair app for smart phones will ensure attendees have the information they need to hand, including a fully interactive timetable detailing each presentation session and information about all presenting companies.

At the PILOT Share Fair this year, a new tier system for the Supply Chain Code of Practice, which provides guidance on how business can drive out waste, improve efficiency and boost competitiveness, will also be launched.
