ADIPEC: Another roaring success

 

 

 

 

This week we have been exhibiting at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference also known as ADIPEC which is held at ADNEC – the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.  The event is normally held every two years but for the first time in history the event moved to an annual show.

 

ADIPEC 2013 has been the most successful year for the event which has welcomed over 55,000 visitors. The event was spread across four days and hosted over 50 technical sessions from more than 300 speakers.  In attendance included our own Chairman of DMGT, Lord Rothermere and Prince Andrew, the British Duke of York.

 

The Middle Eastern oil and gas industry is still highly dependent on foreign workers with over half of the industry’s labour force coming from the expatriate community according to our latest research.

The research, conducted by leading Oil and Gas analysts Douglas-Westwood, indicates that the trend is unlikely to change in the short to medium term as the region looks to meet project demand, despite various educational initiatives by the UAE to increase the proportion of nationals entering the private sector.

 

Our booth was part of the DMG Energy Pavilion #7234, we welcomed hundreds of visitors who were keen to hear more about the Oil and Gas industry and how OilCareers can help them further in their career.  The event was also an excellent opportunity to meet face to face with our clients in the Middle East.

This year we featured a golfing competition on our booth and our lucky winner has won a weekend trip for two to the Yas Viceroy Resort in Abu Dhabi with breakfast, dinner and a round of golf at Yas Links Golf Course.   We hope you enjoy your prize!

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made our time at ADIPEC a memorable one!

Our first LAGCOE experience

 

 

OilCareers.com exhibited for the first time at LAGCOE 2013.  The event took place at the Cajundome on the 22-24 October in Lafayette, Louisiana. 

 

The exhibition and conference has been a roaring success which welcomed hundreds of exhibiting companies from around the world.  The Careers Fair which we are very proud to have sponsored was well attended; it was a pleasure to meet lots of highly qualified candidates. 

 

Joe Jones, Business Development Executive for OilCareers.com gave a very well received presentation on employment in the Gulf of Mexico.  He said: “The US is on course for energy independence with unconventionals and increased offshore exploration and production leading the charge.  Drilling activity in the Gulf of Mexico has increased dramatically over the past 12 months with current rates hinting that by this time next year there could be up to 54 deep water semi submersibles and drillships working in the region.” 

 

According to Joe the increase in activity can be attributed two main factors.  “Technological advances which enable drilling at extreme depths and temperatures have revolutionized the process by which oil is extracted in the region.”

 

Did you attend LAGCOE 2013?  We would like to hear your opinion.
