Event AOG 2015As part of a greater engagement to understand the challenges the energy market is facing, Lloyd’s Register Energy has launched a series of executive engagements around the globe to help facilitate industry discussion on key challenges the energy sector is facing.

The latest event launched during AOG 2015 in Perth, the largest oil and gas gathering in Australia, John Wishart, Group Energy Director of Lloyd’s Register Energy commented: 

“This week we will see the debate at AOG 2015 range from how the industry adapts to a lower oil price, and how technology can become a business enabler to achieve improvements in safety and cost for complex developments in areas such as LNG which continues to present huge opportunities for the region.   

“What we are seeing from the briefings we have conducted in Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Houston, London, Aberdeen and now Perth is that there is a real appetite for executives to learn from each other – and taking these learnings to help to advance the efficiency of the oil and gas industry.”

The Lloyd’s Register Energy ‘Global Executive Briefing Network’ aims to provide an exclusive opportunity to build relationships with peers across the industry through structured strategic discussions. 

Peter Richards, Vice President of Marketing & Communications said:

“Our briefings bring together business leaders from across the world to debate and challenge some of the major demand, supply and technology challenges which the energy sector is facing. Due to the global nature of the sector our aim is to facilitate the debate in key energy centres around the world. 

“We have seen from our past briefings a real desire for executives to learn from each other in a non-competitive environment, and our Executive Briefing Network will start to join up the global debate with focused briefings planned through 2015.”

Based on the importance that the energy sector has to society at large, Lloyd’s Register Energy is helping to increase dialogue and raise awareness on where industry’s resources should focus.
