The first strategic meeting uniting C-level operators with the entire late-life community

The North Sea is on a knife-edge: the decisions operators face about the future of their late-life assets have never been so crucial – should they continue production, close production or perhaps even sell up?

To address this entire suite of critical late-life decisions, uncertainties and strategic challenges, the North Sea’s foremost industry leaders will gather in Aberdeen for a one of a kind debate. EXT:end is the only meeting to position the strategic question of “extend or end?” to the senior decision makers. By uniting the entire late-life community involved in answering this question – covering asset, development, commercial, production and decommissioning teams – it breaks down the silos and provides real answers at a time of desperate need.
