BP CEO Bernard Looney to headline OGUK Annual Conference


OGUK today announced the details of its Annual Conference. The three-day virtual conference entitled ‘Industry in Transition: Driving A Net Zero Energy Future’ will take place online between June 1-3, 2021.


The leading representative body for the UK offshore oil and gas industry revealed BP CEO Bernard Looney will speak on day one of the conference, with OGUK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie expected to restate the UK sector’s commitment to supporting jobs now and through a green recovery. Equinor SVP Arne Gurtner and Head of UK and SVP Europe & Africa at Aker Solutions Sian Lloyd Rees will provide perspectives on the changing nature of the UK offshore oil and gas industry.

“2021 has already proved itself to be a pivotal year for our industry, with the signing of the ground-breaking North Sea Transition Deal in March,” OGUK Sustainability Director Mike Tholen said. “As we approach COP26, this year’s Annual Conference provides us with the opportunity to come together as an industry and take stock as we move forward.

“We’re delighted to be joined by some the biggest names from within the industry for what promises to be a fascinating three-day look at the future of our sector, and the net zero future we’re striving toward, just five months out from COP26.

“This conference is incredibly valuable for anyone interested in the UK offshore oil and gas industry to understand the opportunities that the energy transition will bring to businesses, jobs, people and economies.”

The industry conference comes just a few months ahead of COP26 and will look at the opportunities and challenges from the ground-breaking North Sea Transition Deal agreed with the UK Government in March.
