What will the future of the North Sea look like? Which technologies are needed to make the basin fit for purpose in a net zero world?  

Energy Voice invites you to join us and a select group of industry leaders to scope out the future of energy development in the North Sea ahead of Offshore Europe 2022.  

Our virtual event will create a unique platform for the companies and people shaping the roadmap for the North Sea to showcase their expertise and services.  

The event will feature two plenary sessions, each with a different focus covering the key themes of Net Zero Decommissioning and Transition Technologies.  

The panels will feature speakers from our partners presenting to a large online audience before debating the key themes under consideration. 

Scheduled for Thursday, January 27, the event will serve as a primer for Offshore Europe 2022, which kicks off in Aberdeen the following week.
