Petroleum Review October 2013

This month’s issue of Petroleum Review looks at the potential role that technology might play in helping the oil and gas sector meet the skills gap and outlines some of the attractions of a career in this sector.We also provide an overview of some of the latest decommissioning developments in the North Sea. 

The magazine also explains why regulation remains key to sustainable shale gas field development, with a particular focus on recent UK developments and the US experience. We outline how E&P companies can achieve better results through the improved use of technology and summarise some key risk analysis techniques that are utilised in the drive to reduce risk in the oil and gas sector. In addition, IanMarchant, newly elected EI President, outlines his view on the major energy issues of the day. 

As a final reminder, the Energy Institute will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary in a few weeks. Do please come along to our Anniversary Open Day at the New Cavendish Street headquarters in London on 15 October (see p5), where you will have the opportunity to meet both the Petroleum Review and Energy World editorial teams.
