Diversification across industry sectors, as well as stages of development, makes this a one-of-a-kind event where business gets done. Companies well known to the industry such as Van Oord, Fugro, Imtech Marine and Heerema have secured their space at the exhibition.

Looking beyond Northwest Europe, OE12 also offers an outlook for frontier E&P, including Australia, Brazil and parts of Asia. Will today’s frontiers become tomorrow’s heartlands? Fact is that strong business cases for both oil and gas allow oil companies to invest heavily in increasingly complex projects.

Conveniently running parallel to the exhibition, Offshore Energy offers a conference covering key topics and solutions for the offshore community. In separately bookable sessions the organization brings together a wellrounded international speaker faculty. Developments on the North Sea will be part of the program. The role of the maturing North Sea is far from over and OE12 presents an outlook for new E&P opportunities in Northwest Europe. Invited expert speakers will discuss new North Sea discoveries as well as the latest technologies to extend the operational life of oil and gas fields.

In addressing the challenges of meeting future energy demand, Offshore Energy also looks at alternatives for fossil fuels. Although the lion’s share of electric energy is generated from hydrocarbon resources, investments in renewable power generation, including offshore wind, wave and tidal energy are increasing. The OE12 conference will discuss developments in some of the world’s biggest offshore wind producing countries including the UK, China and Germany and will give an update on the latest state of play in wave and tidal energy.
