EY-IRO Industry Forecast 2020 – audio-webcast

Rotterdam Member meetings

After much consideration, EY and IRO have made the difficult determination to change their annual Industry Forecast event, organized in Rotterdam on Tuesday 17 March, from a physical event to an audio-webcast due to the developing outbreak of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).

As you would expect in the current environment, the safety and wellbeing of our guests, EY and IRO people, and the local community are our primary concern. So, given the unpredictable nature of the situation, we need to change the event this year.

About the EY – IRO annual Industry Forecast
Is 2018/2019 a turning point as it is the first year that we see a recovery of the revenue of the oilfield services in the North Sea? Will this recovery persevere and does this already translate in increasing activities in the Dutch oilfield services? What other factors will lead to a transformation of the oilfield services sector to a renewable Energy sector?

These are some of the questions we will reflect on during the Industry Forecast. This will include Wood Mackenzie’s view on current and future investments in the North Sea as well as from a global perspective and EY’s most recent results of the Dutch oilfield services analysis. The Nordic and global perspective in the Offhore Energy sector will be highlighted by Espen Norheim, EY Partner and member of the EY Nordic Executive group. Are you ready to trend up?

Thank you once again for your interest in participating in our annual Industry Forecast. We hope to welcome you on the audio-webcast.
