SPE postpones Offshore Europe 2022 on coronavirus concerns
In alignment with Scottish Government guidance on the coronavirus situation, the organizers of SPE Offshore Europe have made the difficult decision to postpone the event on 1-4 February 2022 at P&J Live, Aberdeen.
Jonathan Heastie, Portfolio Director – Energy & Marine at RX, co-organizer with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) of SPE Offshore Europe said “The health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees and staff is our priority. We were excited for the return of SPE Offshore Europe to Aberdeen in February 2022, but it is clear that given the current situation it would not be in the best interests of our community to go ahead. The decision is made with a heavy heart, and I am thankful for the wonderful support from exhibitors and all those who had been working so hard to make the show a success. The full conference and exhibition will be rescheduled to 5-8 September 2023.
“It is a complex process to postpone such a large event and we will be in touch directly with our exhibitors and stakeholders in the coming days. Bookings for exhibition space for February 2022 will be guaranteed for September 2023.”
Heastie signaled that a smaller, themed event may be staged later in 2022 if industry demand is sufficient: “We will have discussions with industry and our stakeholders about the possibility of holding an event focused on the energy transition in Aberdeen later in 2022. This would build on the extensive, high-quality content that we had lined up for February to support a fair energy transition.”
