BP GROUP CHIEF EXECUTIVE BOB DUDLEY TO LEAD OPENING PLENARY AT SPE OFFSHORE EUROPE 2017


BP Group Chief Executive Bob Dudley will underline the value of the North Sea in the oil major’s global portfolio when he leads the opening plenary session at SPE Offshore Europe 2017 being held in Aberdeen from 5-8 September 2017.


Dudley, who calls BP’s UK North Sea business one of its “crown jewels”, will address the hundreds of delegates expected to attend the opening plenary session at Europe’s foremost exploration and production (E&P) technical conference and exhibition. Other senior level plenary speakers will be announced in due course.


BP expects to bring two of the largest new developments in the North Sea – the Quad 204 redevelopment and the new Clair Ridge project - into production over the next year or so, as well as continuing to invest in other North Sea assets. Over the same period, BP plans to participate in five exploration wells in the region and in around 50 new development wells over the next three years. BP’s North Sea production output is expected to double from 2015 levels to 200,000 barrels of oil a day by 2020.


Conference Chair Catherine MacGregor, President, Reservoir Characterization Group, Schlumberger limited, commented: “As one of the most eminent figures in our industry, Bob Dudley will provide an inspirational scene-setter under the conference theme Embracing New Realities: Reinventing our Industry. Bob’s insight will kick-start OE2017 as we encourage the industry to think beyond cost efficiency and embrace new technologies, new types of business models and collaborations that will lead to sustainable ways of working.”


Bob Dudley became Group Chief Executive of BP in October 2010. He has spent his whole career in the oil and gas industry since joining Amoco Corporation in 1979. In 1997, he became general manager for strategy for Amoco and in 1999, following the merger between BP and Amoco, was appointed to a similar role in BP. Between 1999 and 2000, he was Executive Assistant to the Group Chief Executive, subsequently becoming Group Vice President for BP’s renewables and alternative energy activities. In 2002, he became group vice president responsible for BP’s upstream businesses in Russia, the Caspian region, Angola, Algeria and Egypt. In 2003 he became Chief Executive Officer of TNK-BP in Russia until 2008 before returning to BP and joining its board in 2009.


Under the theme ‘Embracing New Realities: Reinventing our Industry’, SPE Offshore Europe 2017 will offer more than 85 free-to-attend technical presentations and 11 keynote panel sessions combined with business breakfasts and topical lunches. A ‘new for 2017’ Decommissioning Zone will feature a themed exhibition and conference space. Also free-to- attend, the zone will include over 40 decommissioning technology and service providers in the exhibition as well as a conference programme organised by key industry associations including Decom North Sea, ITf and IMechE.


SPE Offshore Europe has been held biennially in Aberdeen since 1973. It is the largest E&P conference and exhibition outside North America.

FUGRO DISCOVERY TO COMMENCE FRONTIER SEEPS SURVEY OFFSHORE KENYA


Fugro has been awarded a contract by Shell/BG Kenya for the execution of a seabed survey to detect natural leakages of hydrocarbons. The seeps survey complements a seismic exploration programme that was completed recently offshore Kenya.


Undertaking a four week campaign of multibeam data acquisition and precise sampling, fugro will mobilise its specialised survey vessel, fugro Discovery, to Kenya in March. Seabed sampling will be carried out using a drop corer and multibeam data will be acquired with the latest deepwater high resolution multibeam echo sounder, installed in a newly designed gondola on the vessel hull.


The project is one of many seeps campaigns completed in the world’s oceans for Shell by Fugro and demonstrates the added value of consistent execution of site works and standardised deliverables. Managed under a joint Fugro-Shell Safety leadership programme, the project optimises both companies’ expertise in efficient and safe delivery.


Peter Boon, Regional Business Development Manager for fugro in Africa comments, “Seeps surveys are an important part of fugro’s site characterisation services and we’re very pleased to reintroduce the fugro Discovery to African waters, where she will demonstrate the excellent value they represent when exploration budgets are limited. These important seabed surveys support the decision making process for drilling operations, especially in frontier regions like East Africa.”
