The event will be an inspiring and business-oriented presentation by Chris Bird, CEO, Goodwyn Energy Ltd, who will be talking about the need for the UK oil industry to be more disruptive and attack the challenges ahead.

The industry has had many swings over the years, but the UKCS especially is entering a new era of maturity and changing business environment. There will be discussions about the displacement of existing markets, industry norms, and stoic technologies to produce something new, more efficient and worthwhile in UKCS.

There is still enormous potential for Aberdeen, Scotland and the UK as a whole and we hope that after this presentation it will show you a more positive future for the industry.
