Speeches, panel discussions and technology presentations will be some of the events BP and its people will be involved in when the Offshore Technology Conference 2016, the world’s largest oil and gas trade show, gets underway at Houston’s NRG Park.
One of the first major items on the OTC agenda will be a breakfast keynote address by Bernard Looney, BP Chief Executive Upstream, called The Next Chapter: How Oil and Gas Companies can Adapt to the New Environment.
Looney will offer his perspective on the changing environment for the oil and gas industry with a look ahead to the next decade and the challenges and opportunities it presents. He will present information on how investments in safety and capability, advances in technology, and greater efficiencies can help the most resilient operators succeed.
Another key event BP is involved in at OTC is the day-long session called, Next Wave, Thriving on Volatility: Opportunities, Challenges and Solutions. This is sponsored by BP and consists of a series of presentations and panel discussions.
The 2016 Next Wave program will offer insight from industry experts on the boom and bust cycle and highlight the challenges and opportunities it presents. The event will feature roundtable and executive breakout sessions and a panel discussion featuring BP’s Starlee Sykes, Vice President, Global Projects, Deepwater.
Sykes will also make closing remarks at the end of the Next Wave program.
