Leading UK industry organisations are set to lead delegations to the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG) scheduled to take place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre in February 2013. The AOG show will feature some of the pioneering companies and technologies driving oil and gas operations in the North Sea.
The Energy Industries Council (EIC) will bring 23 UK companies to Australia’s leading oil and gas event to showcase new products and technology and build business connections within the Australasian market.
Chief Executive of the EIC, Ian Stokes said UK oil and gas leaders could make a significant contribution to operations in Australia’s burgeoning oil and gas industry. Having developed advanced products and services for oil and gas operations in the challenging waters of the North Sea, UK companies come with an excellent reputation for high-end engineering and innovative technologies, many of which will be on show in the UK pavilion at AOG.
Stokes adds that the EIC’s global online energy project database, EICDataStream is currently tracking 172 oil and gas projects across the Australasia region, with a total potential investment value of over US$432 billion.
Subsea UK also returns to Perth to showcase the wealth of opportunities available in the global subsea market, as well as more specific opportunities in Australasia. According to Neil Gordon, Chief Executive, Subsea UK, the AOG offers a great platform for the company to demonstrate the vital role subsea organisations will play in hydrocarbon recovery in the future.
The Subsea UK pavilion will feature industry leaders such as BPP-TECH and Bibby Offshore, while member companies Seatronics, Forum Energy Technologies and Bowtech will be exhibiting independently.
AOG 2013 will also play host to the largest Scottish contingent to date, with 25 companies heading to Perth as part of the Scottish Development International (SDI) delegation.
SDI’s Oil & Gas Senior Executive, Alan Henderson said AOG was a platform to demonstrate a number of innovative Scottish technologies and promote Scotland’s highly skilled oil and gas engineers, who can impart their skills and knowledge and potentially meet the labour demand in Western Australia.
AOG 2013 will bring together more than 480 exhibitors from across 16 countries, and is expected to attract over 15,000 visitors. The event will provide oil and gas companies an opportunity to connect with decision makers from Australasia’s oil and gas industry at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 20-22 February 2013.
