Organisers of the DEVEX Conference have responded to the economic environment by making the event free to attend.

It’s the first time in 13 years that DEVEX has been made free to attend and the decision was made after securing Premier Oil and Maersk Oil as new DEVEX partners.

The two-day subsurface conference, which will be held on 18 and 19 May, sold out the first 300 places in under 2 hours. Those on the waiting list will now be contacted.

Stuart Wheaton, Director & UK Business Unit Manager from Premier Oil UK said “Premier Oil is very happy to be a Partner of Devex 2016 and this continues our past sponsorship of this important event. Premier Oil continues to make significant commitments to the UKCS with its current projects, production and recent acquisition activity. We do see a bright future if we all make positive changes, as is the theme for this year’s event. We also hope that, along with all the other Partners of Devex 2016, we will maximise attendance through our sponsorship of free places for delegates.”

Brenda Wyllie, Chair of DEVEX 2016 said “Thanks to both Premier Oil and Maersk Oil, we have managed to allocate conference places to some of those on the waiting list. The strong technical program has attracted many from the industry and running free of charge also allows those recently made redundant the opportunity to stay connected. Demand for places is high and as such, we are calling for further partners to release more delegate places.”

Making the Conference free to attend wouldn’t have been possible without the support of industry partners, BP, TAQA, Nexen, OGA, Centrica, ConocoPhillips and now, Premier Oil and Maersk Oil.

DEVEX is a not-for-profit conference run by industry professionals and is the only technical conference of its size which is focused on reservoir discovery, evaluation, development and recovery in the UK. The event is jointly organised by the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain (PESGB), Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and Aberdeen Formation Evaluation Society (AFES).
