Welcome from the 2014 Chairman
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the third Unconventional Gas Aberdeen conference. This two day event is a meeting arranged by the industry for the industry to bring together unconventional gas stakeholders in order to debate and make progress in developing pragmatic solutions for the next stage of this vibrant sector.
While markets such as the US and Canada are blazing the trail, Europe has much potential to fully capitalise on the significant resource we are sitting on. We have seen very large and very small potential resource volumes quoted. We owe it to ourselves to understand the scale of the resource and this must be immediate focus.
Many stumbling blocks have been overcome, but we need to work together to identify emerging barriers and go past them. Supply chain is the next link in the chain and along with issues such as grid access, technology and attaining a social license to operate, we need to be looking at the challenges ahead of us.
This working conference will bring together expertise from operators, suppliers, government, and academia from around the world to go beyond education into the practical aspects. The core of the debate is making unconventional gas work to secure future energy supply.
Focusing on the important themes such as supply chain, technology, planning, and the social license to operate, Unconventional Gas Aberdeen 2014 will drill down towards real solutions.
