Norway holds offshore conference in Singapore


Increased energy demand due to rapid economic development has driven countries in Asia Pacific to reduce their dependency on imported oil and gas by increasing their offshore exploration and production (E&P) activities.

A half day conference is scheduled for April 16 as a joint collaboration between the Royal Norwegian Embassy, Innovation Norway, Norwegian Business Association (Singapore) and DNV. A specially commissioned survey on “The Challenges of Offshore E&P in Asia Pacific”, which analyzes the key trends and issues in the E&P sector in the region will be unveiled at the conference. The survey summarized key challenges facing the industry.

Key speakers from the industry including the EDB Executive Director Mr. Lim Kok Kiang, and Group Chairman of Douglas-Westwood, Mr. John Westwood will share their views focusing on key trends and themes related to technology, human resources and more. At the conference there will also be a panel discussion, chaired by Mr. James Brown, DNV.

The conference will be held at Raffles Town Club.  To receive an invitation and register for the event, please contact the Embassy by e-mail to Ellen Skarsgard,  [email protected]
