Event Overview

"The offshore oil and gas event of the year"

Kasper Faas,  ‎Associate Structured Debt - Energy Clients EMEA, ABN AMRO


As we approach the third OGFAmsterdam conference, stakeholders throughout the offshore community are coming to terms with lower-for-longer oil prices. We will examine the measures being taken by companies across the deal chain to survive the downturn, and ask the question: How are they preparing for the upturn?

Specifically, expert speakers will analyse subjects including increasing operational efficiency, diversifying sources of income, and, of course, financial restructuring.

We will also look to the future for offshore: When will the recovery come? How can you prepare for the new normal? Will leaner operations forged during the downturn survive when the going gets good?

Dedicated networking breaks supply an ideal meeting place for high level delegates from offshore companies, their creditors, and stakeholders from across the deal chain to engage and do business in a convenient and intimate environment.






Key themes & sessions for 2017 include;

  • Industry leaders’ session: Increasing operational efficiency and preserving cash in offshore
  • Timing the offshore sector’s recovery: How close are we to the industry kick-starting back into life?
  • Contractor diversification: Finding alternative income streams during the oil price crash
  • As restructuring becomes de rigeur, what lessons have been learnt across the deal chain?
