Industry leaders to discuss planning and strategy at The UK Shale Gas Summit

Charles Maxwell UK Shale Summit

The UK Shale Gas Summit 2016 (formerly E-SGOS) is a two-day planning and strategy event for the UK onshore oil and gas industry. The summit will address the role for shale gas in the new energy infrastructure and consider the latest developments, strategies and opportunities within UK unconventional exploration & production.

The summit will bring together national & local government, investors, contractors, operators and new entrants from the 14th onshore licensing round with service and solution providers. This year’s conference will examine key developments across policy, planning, strategy, public engagement and environmental impacts, with a focus upon moving from initial exploration to exploratory drilling.
Specific attention will be afforded to discussion of government strategy moving forward, the status of the planning system, the path to exploratory drilling, supporting the future supply chain, tiers of public engagement, baseline monitoring, health & safety regulation and achieving commercial-scale shale gas extraction. Workshops considering strategies for optimizing the shale process, reducing operational costs and the latest technological developments will run alongside the conference.
A break-out exhibition showcasing the latest products and services from across the shale gas industry will also take place over the course of the two days.
