Aberdeen Press and Journal: MAJOR INDUSTRY FIGURES TO OPEN OFFSHORE EUROPE DEBATE

08:50 – 18 July 2007
 
Top figures from the worldwide oil and gas industry will be in Aberdeen at the start of September for the Offshore Europe show.

Leading the debate will be Mark Carne, managing director and executive vice-president for Europe and central Asia for BG Group, who is the conference chairman.

Joining him in the opening session will be: Malcolm Brinded, executive director for exploration and production at Royal Dutch Shell; David Lesar, chairman, president and chief executive at oilfield service giant Halliburton; Robert Olsen, chairman and production director at ExxonMobil; and Frank Chapman, chief executive at BG Group.

Mr Carne said: “I am very pleased to say that we have an extremely strong line up of industry speakers for the opening plenary session.

“Mr Brinded and Mr Olsen will be looking at the state of the industry from the global operators’ perspective, while Mr Lesar will be addressing similar questions from the service sector, which should make for a very interesting dynamic between the oil company and contractor perspectives.

“Then Mr Chapman will be talking about the ways in which the international gas markets are changing as gas, in part, becomes a commodity traded on a global basis.

Mr Carne added: “And we are hoping that the new minister responsible for energy, Malcolm Wicks, will round out the plenary session with a view of British energy policy on the global stage.

“There are a range of perspectives on how the industry will look forward that are being offered here by a powerful group of people.

“We hope that these speakers will set the stage for what I expect to be a great dialogue both among the speakers and with the audience.”

Offshore Europe is being held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre from Tuesday, September 4, to Friday, September 7.

The price of oil fell by as much as a dollar a barrel yesterday on easing petrol supply concerns during peak demand in the US.

London Brent crude for September delivery settled down 76 cents at 75.53 a barrel, having traded as low as 75.03 earlier in the day.
