Offshore Energies UK (OEUK), a representative body for the offshore energy sector, will showcase its new Economy & People report at an event in London on Thursday, June 20. 

Taking place at Deloitte’s UK HQ on New Street Square, the event is one of a series of breakfast briefing roadshows happening in major energy hubs across the UK, all sponsored by Deloitte. 

OEUK has evolved its flagship Economic Report to produce an update of the offshore sector’s workforce profile, plus fresh data on the industry’s contribution to the economy. 

The Economy & People report will also provide updates on actions being taken to reduce carbon emissions and ensure a resilient energy supply while stimulating economic growth and supporting highly skilled jobs. 

Those attending the roadshow events will have an opportunity to hear about the investment opportunities, pathways to economic growth and actions required to unlock the offshore energy sector’s growth potential. 

The London roadshow will kick off with a business breakfast chaired by Jenny Stanning, external relations director at OEUK.  

Speakers and panellists will include Julian Regan-Mears, VP, strategy, integration and corporate affairs at Eni Energy; Ben Ward, energy transition adviser at OEUK; Stephen Marcos Jones, chief executive officer at OPITO; and Carla Riddell, chief strategy officer at Xodus.

OEUK’s members include those with an interest in offshore oil, gas and increasingly carbon capture and storage, hydrogen and wind. They vary from the largest energy producers and developers, to contractors, consultancies and the smallest start-ups with all sharing the ambition to safely provide cleaner fuel, power and products to the UK.

This year marks the third anniversary of the North Sea Transition Deal that industry agreed with the UK government with the aim of reaching next zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The first of its kind by any G7 nation, the deal aims to grow the economy, sustain high-skilled jobs, establish new energy businesses, attract investment and grow exports.

Ross Dornan, market intelligence manager at OEUK, said: “OEUK’s Economy & People Report and launch events come at a crucial time for the UK. It will help grow understanding of the opportunities that oil, gas, offshore wind, hydrogen and CCS bring to communities across the country.

“This event will showcase efforts to develop supply chain capacity and skills to ensure UK companies can capture as much value as possible. This will all help deliver a homegrown energy transition that stimulates the creation of more highly-skilled jobs, whilst reducing emissions and growing energy supplies.”

The London event will take place from 8-10.30am on Thursday, June 20. 

It comes just before the UK goes to the polls on July 4, with energy being high on the political agenda. You can download the offshore energy sector’s manifesto here.
