The SPE Offshore Europe (OE) Conference & Exhibition in Aberdeen, Scotland from September 3 to 6, 2019, will feature the offshore sector’s most signifcant technologies. This year, the biennial event will take place under the theme: “Breakthrough to Excellence – Our license to operate.” It will allow a global network of more than 36,000 industry professionals to connect, source and compare effective solutions. “SPE Offshore Europe 2019 will allow the industry to come together and discuss what really matters,” said Michael Borrell, conference chair and Total’s senior V.P., North Sea and Russia. “It will be important to talk about keeping our costs low, pushing the boundaries of innovation, and focusing on excellence in our operations.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to engage directly with technical experts from more than 900 suppliers on the exhibition floor, from international market leaders to new, innovative technology companies. There will be thousands of demonstrations and case studies presented from a wide range of E&P companies. This year, the highly popular “Decommissioning Zone” will return.
