Young Professionals Event – 8th May
The Young Professionals event is a key session at the conference, and in past years has covered topics such as resilience during the downturn, effective leadership and teamwork and panel style discussions around the “future of the energy industry”.

For 2018 we’d like to turn our attention to new technology, as this has a vital role in the future of the oil and gas industry and Aberdeen and will certainly be of interest to the young professional audience.
Our panel of experts will address the audience followed by a Q&A and some break-out sessions.

Bookings will open here soon.


This year’s core workshop will focus on fluvial facies from Triassic age core. The workshop will be hosted by Angela Melvin  (AM Geos), Tom Mckie, (Shell) and Nigel Bramwell (ConocoPhillips), featuring key cores from both the ‘J’ Fields (ConocoPhillips) and Greater Marnock Field areas (Shell)

Field Trip – Monday 7th May
The 2018 Field Trip, sponsored by ConocoPhillips, will be led by Mark Bentley (AGR Tracs) and will visit the Hopeman Sandstones, near Elgin. The outcrops are mainly aeolian sandstones but we will also be looking for evidence of fluvial processes and modern-day fluvial analogues, and tying the fieldtrip in with the themes of the core workshop.
