A hydrogen hub, an energy transition zone, a future opportunities theatre and a future talent hub are being introduced at the SPE Offshore Europe 2022, which will be held at P&J Live, Aberdeen, from 1 to 4 February 2022
The new features will reflect the evolving nature of the industry as it progresses along the path to decarbonisation and a net zero future.
The live event will follow the SPE Offshore Europe virtual conference from 7-10 September 2021. More than 3,700 people, of which 40% are international visitors from 128 countries, have registered for the conference content, which is available online until 5 December 2021.
Jonathan Heastie, portfolio director – Energy & Marine at RX (Reed Exhibitions), co-organiser with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) said, “Industry support for the return of SPE Offshore Europe has been phenomenal and we are encouraging companies to book now while there is space remaining.”
The Hydrogen Hub will showcase hydrogen technology, including electrolysers, hydrogen refuelling containers, hydrogen-powered vehicles and fuel-cells. Up to 30 exhibitors will display the latest solutions to decarbonise operations in the Energy Transition Zone. The Future Opportunities Theatre will reference growth areas in the North Sea, including decommissioning and late-life, underwater technology, robotics and automation, offshore renewables, industrial decarbonisation/CCUS and mechanical engineering.
SPE Offshore Europe 2022 will also include two days of high-level energy transition conference content curated by SPE. An industry committee will meet shortly after COP26 to tailor a programme that will consider the reality of the energy transition and the steps needed to refresh the roadmap to net zero in the light of the outcomes from the UN Climate Change Conference.
Heastie added, “We will continue to provide a platform for all companies operating in the upstream energy industry to learn, share and showcase. The features being launched in February 2022 will lay the foundation for more extensive changes to the show in 2023.”
