Future North Sea (FNS) 2021

Future North Sea (FNS) 2021


The future of upstream oil and gas development in the North Sea is no longer clear.

The policy of maximising economic recovery has now been counterbalanced by the UK Government’s 2050 net zero target. But while renewables account for a rapidly growing slice of the energy mix, oil & gas demand continues to grow on the back of the post-Covid economic boom.

This situation has created difficult questions the North Sea industry must answer for it to remain sustainable.

How do we meet increasing energy demand whilst simultaneously reducing carbon emissions? What do the changes in strategy mean for the decommissioning of assets? And what is the outlook for mergers and acquisitions as the supermajors revise their strategies and private equity investment cycles conclude?

On September 6, Energy Voice will host Future North Sea (FNS) 2021, a virtual event that looks to provide answers to each of these fundamental questions.

Bringing together experts from across the sector, the event will showcase three sessions covering Net Zero Production, Decommissioning and M&A. These will feature presentations and panel discussions designed to provide your business with the innovative solutions, strategies and products required to thrive in the North Sea of the future.

Register now to join the conversation and hear from the companies and people shaping the future of the North Sea.
