Event Overview

Investment opportunities and optimised capital structures for offshore oil and gas services


In March 2018, OGFAmsterdam returns against a backdrop of tentative optimism. Whilst the offshore services space is still characterised by a focus on the preservation of cash, rather than an abundance of new projects, there are signs of light at the end of the tunnel.

Varied session formats, led by industry leading speakers, will explore both the reasons for optimism – like consolidation & reduction of asset oversupply, FIDs in Brazil and Mexico – as well as persisting industry challenges, particularly regarding balance sheet management.

We will also examine how some offshore service companies have moved away from their reliance on oil & gas for business. Numerous players are capitalising on developments in the burgeoning offshore wind space, and the whole industry’s adaption to the global energy transition will pervade as a theme at the event.

Dedicated networking periods, including a cocktail reception after the first day, 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.
