The EIC organises largest UK inward delegation to Indonesia in over 10 years
06 November, 2017
Over 70 UK companies working in the global upstream oil and gas industry attended the inaugural EIC Oil & Gas Indonesia event in Jakarta on 1 November, the largest UK inward delegation to the country in more than 10 years.
The event, which was co-hosted by Indonesia’s oil and gas regulator SKK Migas and the UK’s Department for International Trade, was officially opened by SKK Migas Chairman Amien Sunaryadi and the UK Ambassador to Indonesia Moazzam Malik.
Two-hundred delegates heard from 18 speakers including SKK Migas, Pertamina, PGN, Saipem, Chevron, BP, Energi Nusantara, Rekind, Schlumberger and KBR on project opportunities in the region.
As well as providing updates on their developments in the region, representatives from the participating operators and contractors also took part in over 150 private one-to-one meetings with the UK delegates to discuss how they can work together and add value to the local supply chain.
Commenting on the first ever EIC Oil & Gas Indonesia event, EIC CEO Stuart Broadley said, ‘We already run similar events in the UK, UAE and USA, which bring together major operators and contractors with UK suppliers.
‘Given that Indonesia is South East Asia’s largest economy and one of the world’s most important oil and gas hubs, Jakarta was an obvious choice of venue for our next event.
‘EIC Connect Oil & Gas Indonesia 2017 was an astounding success with a phenomenal number of major Indonesian energy companies meeting with leading UK supply chain firms to discuss how they can together work on projects in the region, create local jobs and support the country to produce more energy, safely and efficiently.’
