A number of experienced oil and gas professionals are to offer advice on how to survive the current climate of the oil and gas at an upcoming networking event.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section’s Another Perspective Committee, in conjunction with AXIS Network, is hosting an evening speed networking event entitled: ‘How to Survive in a Difficult Economic Climate’. High attendance is expected at the event following the downturn which has affected many people working in the offshore industry in Aberdeen.

The event will see senior industry figures talk to attendees and share their previous experiences of working in a low oil price environment. Delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss their concerns with professionals outside of their normal network.

Confirmed table hosts include Morven Spalding, managing director of MGSL, Jeanette Forbes, CEO of PCL Group, Ian Phillips, chief executive of the Oil & Gas Authority and John Donachie, partner of corporate finance at Pareto Securities Ltd, with many more to be confirmed.

Shankar Bhukya, SPE Aberdeen chairman, said: ‘There are many people working in the oil and gas industry who will be experiencing the impact of a downturn for the first time, and will be rightfully concerned about their future. This is an unprecedented opportunity to hear from those who have previously ‘weathered the storm’, and a chance to talk to them about their personal experiences.

‘SPE Aberdeen is delighted to support this event and we are particularly pleased to be able to offer places free of charge. Continued professional development should not be forgotten, even in challenging times, and we are committed to ensuring that people at all levels and stages of their career have access to these training and mentoring opportunities.’

The event will be held on Thursday 19 November at the Hazlehead Park Café, Aberdeen from 6pm. Due to limited ticket availability, confirmation of attendance is required by Thursday 5 November. Please email to confirm your attendance.
