Question Time: The New Operators – An Independent State of Mind

The last two years have seen more than $12bn of Private Equity investment in the North Sea, backing a new breed of operator that still sees the potential to make money in the UKCS. These new independent operators will have to deal with oil price instability, OGA stewardship, economic recovery and supply chain obligations and of course decommissioning liabilities.

What are their perspectives on the continuing oil price instability and operating costs? What is the outlook they see for service companies still dealing with oversupply? What contracting models and strategies are available to the UKCS to remain globally competitive?

Our guests to discuss the changed face of the North Sea will be:

John Woods, Chief Operating Officer of i3 Energy

Guy Sharman, SURF Manager for Alpha Petroleum

Shona Campbell, Seagull Project Manager for Neptune  Energy

Colin Percival, Technical Director of the Parkmead  Group

Please join us for a wide-ranging discussion that might offer a few clues of what we can expect over the next few years’ evolution in the story of the North Sea.
