Young Energy Conference 2019

Created with Sketch. STAVANGER

WELCOME to this year’s event for young professionals in the oil and gas industry!

The conference is a nationwide event for young people aged 35 years or younger working in the oil and gas industry. The conference is a popular event, and alternates location between Stavanger and Oslo.

NPF would like to provide young people with an arena where they can meet with other likeminded professionals with the purpose of networking, whilst listening to presentations held by experts within their own respective fields focusing on the most relevant trends, challenges and opportunities within the oil and gas industry today.

The event is aimed at giving you as a young professional in the energy industry a chance to look beyond your day to day activities through giving valuable Insights into key topics of the industry and getting to know other young professionals in the industry that might inspire you today or prove valuable in the future.

On this year’s Young Energy Conference we will delve into current issues as the oil price volatility, who take the cost of CO2 reductions, and the status of the Norwegian Continental Shelf as viewed from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate. Continuous improvement is something we all face, and we will have the pleasure of learning from AkerBP how they design the organization for the future.

The evolution and use of Seabox will be presented by NOV along with Equinor and ConocoPhillips who are set to be the first users. Focus will be on how the technology was developed and commercialized.

P&A of wells are an activity that will become more important on the mature NCS. One risk that could occur are leakages post plugging, and we will have a presentation on how operators and authorities can handle those events.

You can expect participants from all parts of the energy business, so be prepared to learn and network to broaden your skillset and meet new people through the day.

On behalf of the committee I welcome you to Young Energy 2019

Remember that you have to be employed in the energy business and be under 35 to be eligible to participate

Best regards
Adrian Holm, Equinor
Committee leader
