Drilling down into
unconventional solutions



The third Unconventional Gas Aberdeen conference and exhibition was held on the 25 and 26 March 2014.  The event built upon the success of previous conferences and brought together expertise from operators, suppliers, government, and academia from around the world. The core of the debate was how to make unconventional gas work and maximising the potential of this industry to secure future energy supply, with a focus on important themes such as supply chain, technology, planning, and the social license to operate.


Planning for the next conference will commence soon and more details will follow shortly.

Welcome from the 2014 Chairman


The countdown is on to the Unconventional Gas 2014 conference in Aberdeen. This is the only UK-based annual conference on the topic by the industry and for the industry.

Our full programme is now live and is excellent. The programme features a great diversity of expertise in this sector and in related industries which have tackled similar challenges and will share this experience. Speakers come from government, industry bodies, operators with drilling activity onshore Europe, and the academic world.

The format will include presentations by speakers and interactive discussion among the participants facilitated by professionals. Also, for the first time at such an event, we will dedicate a showcase to the academic world in an informal evening session allowing conference delegates to see the work of, and interact with the next generation of talent in this business.

The conference, and the industry, have come a long way in recent years and we, and the outside world, are so much more aware of the challenges we face today. The conference will build upon shared experiences in order to focus on practical solutions to the current issues such as regulatory and social licence, as well as the development of a healthy supply chain to support this emerging business which could play a significant role in securing our energy supply.

We look forward to seeing you in March.
