The crucial role of Vision 2035 in driving the continued competitiveness of the North Sea will come under the spotlight at Oil & Gas UK’s (OGUK) 2019 Industry Conference.

The leading representative body for the UK’s offshore oil and gas industry today revealed the conference theme, “Industry in Transition’, for the flagship event held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on 4-5 June next year.

Delegates will hear industry leaders and keynote speakers reflect on the people, business processes and diversification opportunities needed to unlock growth as the sector continues to emerge from one of the toughest downturns in its history.

The conference will also discuss industry’s key role in a lower carbon economy and reinforce the critical role Vision 2035 will play in achieving the balance between delivering the UK’s climate change targets and ensuring security of energy supply.

Commenting, Oil & Gas UK Chief Executive Deirdre Michie said:
