About this event

The offshore industry is continuing its ongoing search for hydrocarbons in seas around the world and rapidly expanding the extraction of renewable energy from offshore wind and potentially wave and current. In both the hydrocarbon and renewable energy theatres the drive to break through the barriers continues apace.

British engineers are leading players in both arenas worldwide. There are significant opportunities for a wide range of engineering skills in the industry. To raise awareness of the industry and the opportunities for engineering graduates and soon to be graduates not currently engaged in offshore engineering the OES is holding an evening event that provides a broad overview of the industry and opportunity to talk industry experts.

The event is supported by a number of organisations within the industry and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).

The event will comprise five short formal presentations by leading members in the industry. This will be followed by an informal session where the delegates will be able to discuss particular aspects of the industry with the presenters and other industry experts over refreshments provided by our sponsors.

The formal presentations are:

  • Structural Engineering – Mark Knight, Manager of Offshore Structures and Marine Engineering Department, CB&I;
  • Offshore Renewable Energy – Mike Hallett, Lead Offshore Structural / Civil Engineer, IBERDROLA;
  • Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering – Alex Argyros, Naval Architect, DNV GL;
  • Geotechnical Engineering – Trevon Joseph, Senior Geotechnical Engineer, Atkins;
  • Pipelines and Subsea Engineering - Catriona Lamont, Engineer, Subsea 7 and Richard Baker, Senior Engineer, 2H Offshore.

The event will be held in the impressive building of the Institution of Civil Engineers in Great George Street, just off Parliament Square. If you have, or soon will have, an engineering degree and want to know more about the exciting prospects in offshore engineering this is an event not to be missed.
