OGUK has today (Tuesday, March 3) confirmed it has taken the decision to postpone a number of its events this year in light of the developing spread of coronavirus.

The below events will be postponed, and new dates will be released in due course:

•            Share Fair, March 24th, Aberdeen

•            Doctors’ Training Workshop, April 1st, Aberdeen

•            D&I Conference, April 23rd, Aberdeen

•            Examining Doctors’ Conference, May 7th, London

OGUK said the safety of its members and visiting delegates was of the upmost priority and it will communicate the rescheduled event dates in due course, with a replacement ticket issued to those who had already purchased.

Gareth Wynn, OGUK’s stakeholder and communications director, said: “We are continuing to work closely with our members to circulate official advice on coronavirus (COVID-19) from the relevant agencies and will continue to work across the sector to help ensure the health of people in the oil and gas industry.

“Our more imminent Business Outlook Breakfast Briefing events in both Aberdeen and London are expected to go ahead as planned as they attract primarily local audiences and run for a short duration with more limited contact between delegates, however we will continue to monitor the situation and any advice from the health authorities.  

“We will also be communicating additional guidance to all delegates in advance of these events to help mitigate the potential spread of the virus.”
