GL Noble Denton commissions new Economist Intelligence Unit report on the outlook for the oil and gas industry in 2012.

Delegates at Offshore Europe 2011 and professionals from across the industry are invited to have their say on the future of the sector
• Senior industry figures to participate in report research, which will be published in January 2012


GL Noble Denton, the independent technical advisor to the oil and gas industry, is calling upon sector professionals to contribute to what will be one of the most comprehensive sector outlook reports to date, a sequel to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s commended study: Deep water ahead? The outlook for the oil and gas industry in 2011, sponsored by GL Noble Denton earlier this year.
 

GL Noble Denton has commissioned the Economist Intelligence Unit to research and publish the report for a second consecutive year, and will be gathering the opinions of professionals to provide a complete view of the challenges that the sector expects to face in 2012 and beyond. The report will focus on a wide range of issues affecting the industry, including the future of research and development activity; balancing risk and return; the impact of post-Macondo legislation; and the levels and locations of capital investment that companies expect to make in 2012. Research for the report, which will be published in January 2012, has begun with a survey of oil and gas professionals across the world, who are invited to contribute their opinions on the future of the industry through a brief online survey at: www.gl-nobledenton.com/eiusurvey2012
 

Oil and gas professionals attending Offshore Europe 2011 in Aberdeen on 6-8 September 2011 are also invited to the GL Noble Denton stand (Hall 2, E130) to contribute to the survey and be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad.
Pekka Paasivaara, Member of the GL Group Executive Board, said: “We are delighted to have commissioned the Economist Intelligence Unit to bring us valuable, independent insight into challenges faced by those at the heart of the oil and gas industry. “The results of the research - coupled with in-depth interviews with industry leaders - will help GL Noble Denton to better understand what our clients expect to face in 2012, allowing us to be ready to assist them with the technical challenges of developing and operating their assets as safely and efficiently as possible.” Download the GL Noble Denton-sponsored Economist Intelligence Unit report for 2011 here: http://www.gl-nobledenton.com/en/eiu-register.php
