Ken Cruickshank, Oil & Gas UK’s supply chain manager, said: "Bookings for the one-to-one business discussions are always snapped up fast because participants know they are a highly effective way to gain invaluable access to key decision makers including client contract and purchasing teams.
"In turn, operators and major contractors use these conversations to identify innovative value-adding technologies and enterprising new entrants to the supply chain sector.
"In today’s tough economic climate, Oil & Gas UK’s Share Fair plays a key role in bringing the market together to provide greater insight into the business opportunities that the sector still has on offer.
"There will be presentations of forward work plans, as well as the one-to-one meetings, throughout the day delivered by operators and major contractors.
"These will include Aker Solutions; Amec Foster Wheeler; Apache North Sea; BP Exploration Operating Company Limited; Chevron North Sea Limited; ConocoPhillips; Halliburton; Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd; Petrofac; Premier Oil; Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited; Shell U.K. Ltd; Technip UK Limited; TOTAL E&P UK LIMITED; and Wood Group.
As one of their three appointments, delegates are also able to request a one-to-one session with Achilles FPAL which identifies, evaluates and provides pre-qualification information about suppliers on behalf of major buyers in the oil and gas sector.
Achilles FPAL aims to help companies maximise their visibility, raise awareness of the industry’s Supply Chain Code of Practice and provide hints and tips on how best to market their services, expertise and products. ■
