NETHERLANDS – At a time when the energy industry is in some confusion as oil prices fluctuate, this year’s Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2015 (OEEC), held at the Amsterdam RAI, was not only a big success, the event also grew compared to last year. 11,865 visitors came to Amsterdam to meet up with companies or to attend one of the many Technical Sessions, Keynotes and Master Classes from the conference program. All with one constructive goal in mind; investing in the future of energy.

For three days, starting on Monday with the full day Offshore WIND Conference, Amsterdam was a meeting place for a host of international clients, OEMs, EPC companies and suppliers active in oil and gas exploration and production as well as renewable energy development. OEEC 2015 was opened by Coert van Zijll Langhout, Managing Director of Navingo BV and Scarlett Mummery, a YP offshore geotechnical engineer specializing in geology and seabed drill operations who talked about her goals and ambition to enrol young people of both sexes in the offshore industry.

The conference program at OEEC contained Technical Sessions such as Well Intervention Vessels, Technical Data Management, Decommissioning and Subsea Processing where delegates from Shell, Helix Well Ops and OneSubsea, among many others, discussed the topics presented by the speakers. Meanwhile 658 exhibitors covered four large halls of the Amsterdam RAI using individual techniques to attract interest, from robots that you could take a selfie with to an F1 simulator.

Next year Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference takes place on 25-26 October 2016. In November the website will be updated with information about participating in and visiting Offshore Energy 2016.
