„We are proud that the entire sector has backed our vision to have one organisation representing all of the industry. “ Martin Næsby Managing Director Oil Gas Denmark

9 ANNUAL REPORT 2013 / Foreword by Martin Næsby, Managing Director

As an industry, we are facing major challenges such as maturing infrastructure, declining production and increasing operating costs. It requires a focused effort and major investments to extract the potential. With Oil Gas Denmark, the oil and gas industry has a joint forum to promote this task. If we are to succeed, we need a coordinated effort in order to further develop the sector in a number of areas. Oil Gas Denmark has seen a strong increase in number of members. By 1 January 2014, Oil Gas Demark represented around 65 members or an increase of more than 200% since the organisation was established in 2012.

„If we are to succeed, we need a coordinated effort in order to further develop the sector in a number of areas.“ Following finalization of the Service review in 2013, the Ministry for Climate, Energy and Building has in April 2014 set in motion the work with the long term strategy for increased recovery of oil and gas from the Danish continental shelf. The Ministry has among other pointed out that the review will encompass the infrastructure, increased recovery from known fields as well as securing the future recruitment for the industry. Oil Gas Denmark is looking forward to participating in the work. In preparing for this work we have produced the report “The potential in the North Sea”, which points to a number of drivers which can create new growth in the North Sea. The work

with the long term strategy is expected to be finalized by the end of May 2015. In 2013 we continued our strong industry focus on health, safety and environment. With the Safety Conference on 18 April 2013 we were honoured to welcome prominent speakers as Professor Sidney Dekker, Griffith University, Australia and Jim Trodden, OIM, Chevron Upstream Europe to deliver key note addresses. Around 320 representatives of management, workforce, regulators and academia came to remind ourselves that although we as an industry have a low accident ratio compared with onshore work; our goal is to do it even better. That remains the philosophy behind Oil Gas Denmark. Oil Gas Denmark has in 2013 prepared for consolidation of the oil and gas industry. We are proud that the entire sector has backed our vision to have one organisation representing all of the industry. ‘Danish Operators’ and ‘Danish Offshore Industry’ have thus with effect from 1 January 2014 ceased as organisations and all members have been transferred to the continuing organisation. Oil Gas Denmark is a member-driven and member-focused industry organisation. We depend on you support, advice and input and thank you for your contribution and support in 2013. Our agenda must be set by and for our members. We look forward to working with and for you in 2014. Martin Næsby Managing director Oil Gas Denmark

„As an oil nation we have great potential for growth� Troels Albrechtsen, Chairman

15 ANNUAL REPORT 2013 / Highlights of 2013: Troels Albrechtsen, Chairman

It is quite clear that Denmark is making its mark as an oil nation that effectively utilises its resource base and export technology and raw materials. And as an oil nation we have great potential for growth. Oil Gas Denmark seeks to deliver its objectives of enhancing value for the industry and society and raising the awareness of the industry’s benefit to the wider economy. 2013 has been a good ‘first year’ for the organisation of effort and achievements by the team in Knabrostræde.

„Recognition of Oil Gas Denmark as the voice of the industry has grown strong in 2013.“ We are still an organisation under establishment. At the Board of Directors we are pleased to see the progress of the organisation and the support it enjoys in the industry. A few highlights would include:

Establishing of the strong HSE collaboration across the industry has been a landmark achievement. The Safety Conference in April 2013 was showcasing international safety leadership. The delivery of the EU Offshore Safety Directive will allow Denmark to build constructively on its already strong framework. Oil Gas Denmark has kept an eye on our cooperation with educational institutions. Securing ‘people in the pipeline’ is a strong focus area. Achievements include participation in various committees and advisory boards as well as media attention by interviews and articles. I am very happy to see that the Skills & Capabilities Committee has found its feet. The Service Review showcased a number of opinions in the industry. However, Oil Gas Denmark’s role has been to represent the ‘common denominator’ and has done so with good results. Recognition of Oil Gas Denmark as the voice of the industry has grown strong in 2013. The main challenge for the industry will be to remain focused on safely delivering the growth potential - with humility and without complacency. Troels Albrechtsen Chairman Oil Gas Denmark

„I am confident that Oil Gas Denmark will continue its focus on value creation and thereby ensuring that all supplier and service companies get great value from their membership and participation in the organisation.� Verner Andersen Vice President Oil Gas Denmark

17 ANNUAL REPORT 2013 / Verner Andersen, Vice President

2013 has been a good year for the Danish supplier and service industry. The investments from the operators have been very high. This has in turn procured new jobs, increased tax revenues and growing exports from the supply chain.

„We are proud to having been a strong partner in building Oil Gas Denmark“. Danish Offshore Industry proved a valuable stepping stone into Oil Gas Denmark. We are proud to having been a strong partner in building Oil Gas Denmark leading into creation of

the ‘Supplier Council’ where we in the future will continue to represent the views of the supplier and service industry. My highlights of 2013 include: · Finalisation of the Service review of the sector and kick off of a ‘Long Term Strategy’ · Creation of many new jobs · Enhanced collaboration as regards HSE and ‘people in the pipeline’ Great support from the supplier and service industry. I am confident that Oil Gas Denmark will continue its focus on value creation and thereby ensuring that all supplier and service companies get great value from their membership and participation in the organisation. Verner Andersen Vice President Oil Gas Denmark

Organisational Change of Oil Gas Denmark With the formation in 2012 of Oil Gas Denmark, Danish Operators and Danish Offshore Industry established a common platform, the objective of which still is to encompass the consolidated interests of the industry, and secure that the industry would speak with one voice. As a part of the consolidation of the structure of the associations, it was in 2013 decided to establish a flexible and streamlined organisation.

The main consequences of the consolidation are:   Dissolvent of Danish Operators and Danish Offshore Industry  All members were taken in as members of Oil Gas Denmark

directly.   Two councils representing oil companies and supplier/service companies, respectively, were established formally deciding among other on representation in the board of directors and member fee.   Oil Gas Denmark’s Board of Directors will for future purposes comprise 7 members. 4 will be elected by the Oil Company Council and 3 will be elected by the Supplier Council.   The consolidation was supported and approved by 100 pct. of the members of the two founding organisations.
