Keynote Speaker Announced for Decom Offshore 2017


Decom North Sea, the  membership organisation for the oil and gas decommissioning sector, has announced Chris Cox, managing director of Centrica's Exploration & Production business, as keynote speaker for its flagship conference and exhibition, Decom Offshore 2017.

This year's annual conference, entitled “Challenging the Norm”, is principally sponsored by Bureau Veritas UK and takes place on 24 May at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.  

With over 30 years' extensive experience in global oil and gas upstream activities, Chris has also held a number of senior roles at BG Group plc and a variety of international technical, commercial and management roles with both Amerada Hess and Chevron Corporation.

Outlining his vision for North Sea decommissioning, his keynote address will explore a number of themes, including: risk-based and total cost approach to optimal timing; collaboration between regulators; industry bodies and operators to establish fit-for-purpose work scopes, and the urgent need for the supply chain to focus on solutions and delivery models that can support and collaborate with operators to manage their decommissioning activities and costs.

Commenting on the announcement, Decom North Sea chief executive, Roger Esson, said: “With a number of mature assets in the Centrica portfolio and efficient decommissioning amongst his top priorities, Chris is ideally positioned to provide insight into the current decommissioning landscape from an operator perspective and we are delighted to announce him as keynote speaker.

“Now in its fifth year, Decom Offshore 2017's programme will reflect the title, “Challenging the Norm”, by focusing on providing a clear picture of recent and current activity within the decommissioning sector. This is an evolving sector, and fundamental to our commitment to assisting a robust, global supply chain win work, is to ensure we are constantly learning from latest experience.”

This annual, sell-out event has gained a reputation for providing unrivalled learning and networking opportunities for the expected 400 delegates. This year, the programme is keenly focused upon the current opportunities available in the late life and decommissioning sector, for all levels of the supply chain. 

In addition to plenary sessions, interactive break outs and over 30 exhibitors, Decom Offshore 2017 introduces One-to-One sessions, with a particular emphasis upon supply chain export opportunities via engagement with Decom North Sea's board of directors and other strategic partners.

Delegate bookings are now open for Decom Offshore 2017. Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are also currently available. For further information on both, please visit www.decomnorthsea.com
