London, United Kingdom, January 08, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- 2015 is set to be an exciting year for the shale gas and oil industry in the UK. New developments were recently announced in the Autumn Statement including a shale information resource for the public and the establishment of a long-term investment fund. Along with the 14th Onshore Licensing Round outcomes expected this January, the industry can expect some major changes.
This year, the conference will focus on the next critical steps of UK shale exploration, digging into topics including preparing the infrastructure and supply chain, securing investment, outcomes of the Licensing Round and ensuring a robust regulatory structure.
Taking delegates through exploring these critical issues, with keynote presentations and panel discussion, are high-calibre speakers including Andrew Austin (IGas), Matt Lambert (Cuadrilla), Duarte Figueria (DECC), David Messina (Hutton Energy), Tony Grayling (Environment Agency), Dr Jim Marshall (Water UK) and more.
Delegates will have the opportunity to strategise on how to minimise the risks and discover where the real opportunities lie, as well as build relationships with senior executives from a wide variety of industries. With a whole host of new oil and gas companies expected to enter the market, the next coming year will also see increasing involvement in shale from oil majors, oil suppliers, engineers, water companies, government bodies and associations.
The prospects look promising, but the industry still faces a multitude of challenges from securing investment to gaining planning permission.
