 Future Offshore – Energy Voice’s primer event for ONS 2022 

What is the future for offshore energy as the transition gathers pace and a new geopolitical landscape emerges?  

Energy Voice invites you to join us and industry leaders to shape the offshore agenda for the North Sea ahead of ONS 2022 in Stavanger.  

Our event will offer a powerful platform to the leading companies and people active in offshore energy to showcase their expertise and services. 

The event will feature three key sessions, each with a different focus: 


Session 1 – Energy security 

The energy industry must meet critical production targets whilst making the transition as a tough winter approaches. What are the options? 

Talking points: 

– How to meet rising demand for oil and gas as companies push towards 2030 net zero commitments. 

– The need for secure domestic energy supply/security in light of the Ukraine war and global pricing pressures. 

– Energy security and social licence for oil & gas developers.  

– Future E&P and supply chain opportunities. 

Plus more to be confirmed. 


Session 2 – North Sea: Energy transition frontier 

This session will explore decarbonisation in the UKCS and Norway.  Where are comparisons apt and what can each side learn from the other? 

Talking points: 

– What tech advances are driving the transition in the North Sea? 

– What can the North Sea teach (and learn from) other offshore basins? 

– Coexistence of O&G infrastructure with renewables; platform electrification. 

– CCUS, hydrogen and repurposing infrastructure. 

Plus more to be confirmed with our event partners. 


Session 3 – Skills transition 

What steps are required to reach the jobs and investment levels to ensure longevity of the offshore industry? 

Talking points: 

– Safeguarding jobs, attracting and retaining talent. 

– Which transferable skills will futureproof the offshore industry? 

– Which organisations are skilling up the workforce and enabling the transition? 

– New opportunities in wind and hydrogen. 

– Retraining, learning & development. 

Plus more to be confirmed with our event partners.

— A Tracking Transition Series —

June 29 – 15:00-16:30 (BST)



Geothermal has been identified as a key technology in the provision of sustainable energy. It is not dependent on weather conditions and geothermal power plants can supply baseload electricity.

And geothermal can also harness the skills and technology developed in the oil and gas sector to help drive the transition and shift to net zero.

It offers a huge untapped energy source that has the potential to drive up to 20% of the UK’s electricity and all of the country’s heating demand, making it an area that should not be ignored.

Energy Voice has joined up with Expro, an expert in geothermal, to showcase the potential of the technology to reshape the energy mix, enhance security of supply and advance the just transition from oil and gas to sustainable energy.

Join us to hear from Expro and a select panel of experts as they discuss what the technology is, why it’s important and what next for the sector.

–NEO 2.0–


Wednesday May 18, 2022

11:00 – 12:30 (BST) / 06:00 – 07:30 (EST) / 14:00 – 15:30 (GST)


The energy transition will need to harness an array of new technologies with solar PV, hydrogen and storage all playing a critical role.

These three industries each have their own merits and challenges. But the common thread, the drive to slash carbon emissions, means they will continue to attract substantial capital and create significant opportunities for the global supply chain.

In 2021, Energy Voice presented the first in our NEO series which focused on the US market. Now, in association with Bracewell, a leading law firm renowned worldwide for its unique depth and experience in the energy sector, we are delighted to present a follow up virtual event focused on new energy opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa.

The international energy industry can learn from the rapid development of these technologies in the region.

Register today to hear from our panel on how solar PV, hydrogen and storage are shaping the new energy mix, and how to capitalise on the opportunities this transition presents.

— A Tracking Transition Series —


Session 1 – UK & Europe: CLICK HERE to watch on demand



Carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) is an essential solution for the world to reach net zero emissions.

CCUS will play a key role in reducing emissions from industries such as energy, steel, cement and chemicals and so provides a vital pathway to a carbon-neutral future.

Established infrastructure and vast offshore storage capacity gives the UK a strategic advantage when it comes to the storage of carbon. This will be key to the UK’s push towards net zero by 2050 with the country also well placed to support other European countries and their CCUS aims.

CCUS, the latest in our Tracking Transition series, kicks off on May 9 with Session 1 focusing on the UK & Europe.

This session will analyse the UK’s expanding CCUS sector and the rich export opportunities it will generate. There will also be a focus on developments in other European countries and the emerging synergies across the industry.

Together with our principal partners SSE Thermal and Gaffney Cline we will tackle key questions such as:

• How can CCUS contribute to energy transition goals?
• Which key projects are driving development?
• What opportunities does CCUS present the oil & gas industry?
• What does CCUS mean for a decarbonised supply chain?
• What are the challenges and opportunities around skills/workforce?
• How can the UK leverage its strategic advantage in CCUS?
• How can policy and regulation be improved to enhance CCUS development?

Session 2 in the series will focus on CCUS in Asia with Session 3 looking at the Middle East and North Africa. The series will conclude with Session 4, providing some insight on the evolution of the US market and consider Where Next? for this vital industry.

Session 1 – The Energy Transition Forum

The Forum was the keynote session of ETIDEX 2020 which looked at where the transition currently was and where it was headed. Our panellists provided insight into the future of the energy mix and the greener economy, setting the tone of the debate for the day and paving the way for the key themes to be discussed in later sessions.


Session 2 – Corporate Response to Net Zero

UK plc has a major role to play in framing the narrative around the transition, the future of our greener economy and what it means for business and consumers. This session was an opportunity for companies and organisations to outline their net-zero objectives with 12 months to go until COP26.


Session 3 – Renewables and Transition Infrastructure

This session addressed the major renewable energy and transition infrastructure development required, with focus on key technologies such as offshore wind. Scotland’s position as a hub for renewables made this session an especially important focus area and a platform for our panellists to present and debate their future plans.


Session 4 – Hydrogen and CCUS

Hydrogen could have a catalytic effect on the future of the energy mix and economy. The debate around green versus blue hydrogen was a core topic for debate in this session. This dovetails with the UK’s leadership in carbon, capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), another rich seam of discussion that our panellists delved into.
