Building Resilience, Driving Growth 9-10 May 2017, AECC

2017 DEVEX Technical Programme

Collaboration Networking Lunch

An exclusive networking lunch took place on Day 1 and focused on the theme of collaboration. This extremely valuable session featured expert speaker, Norton Bertram Smith, giving a short talk followed by a structured discussion involving our Operator Partners, and explored the specific challenges we see for leaders attempting to improve collaboration in Oil and Gas.


2017 featured Clair Core, provided by BP and was on display during both days of the Conference.

Young Professionals Event

The PESGB Young Professionals invited attendees to a panel discussion on the theme ‘I get knocked down, but I get up again’.

Expanding on the conference theme of ‘Building Resilience, Driving Growth’ the panel discussed how oil and gas professionals can deal with the peaks and troughs of the industry. How can we manage our careers in the highs and thrive during the lows?

This session examined the practical steps to building resilience and what we need to do to effectively manage our careers, not just in challenging times but all the time.

Field Trip

The 2017 Field Trip, sponsored by ConocoPhillips, visited Devonian Old Red Sandstone (ORS) exposures near Arbroath. The exposed sections represent excellent outcrop analogues to the Clair Field’s ORS reservoir. Horizontal and vertical core from the Clair Field was on display at the conference, allowing comparisons to be explored.
