Leading Energy Players EEEGR's Conference

More top names have been lined up for the UK’s most significant conference and exhibition focused on the Southern North Sea energy business to be held in Norwich this year.

Shell, EDF Energy Schlumberger, East Anglia Offshore Wind and Aker Solutions are among companies which will feature at the two-day SNS2014: Sea of Opportunity event staged by EEEGR (East of England Energy Group) at the Norfolk Showground on March 5-6th.

Around 500 delegates and more than 80 exhibitors are expected to take part.

“The focus is not just on the incredible range of business opportunities and the market potential within the East of England but the innovation and technology which will give us the competitive edge in a fiercely combative industry,” said EEEGR chief executive Simon Gray.

“There are increasing signs of expansion and development in our region’s energy world in readiness for growth in the offshore wind, gas and nuclear sectors and the conference will offer crucial leads and key pointers on how to win that new business. It also offers ample opportunities to meet and network with leading players in the industry. “

The second day includes Jaap Klein, of Shell, Gordan Ballard, of Schlumberger and Chris Squires of EDF Energy talking about supply chain opportunities. Energy Minister Michael Fallon is also confirmed as a speaker at the SNS2014  Gala Dinner on March 5th at the same venue.

The first day, focused mainly on technology and innovation, includes David Rowland of East Anglia Offshore Wind – developers of the 7200MW wind farm off the Norfolk/Suffolk coast – and a speaker from Aker on its pioneering plans for monitoring new technology.
