The Getenergy Annual Global Event is unique, in that it is the only place where oil and gas companies can meet and build partnerships with education and training providers from all over the world. National Oil Companies, who control 95% of the world’s oil and gas reserves are, by their nature, owned by governments. Those governments, without exception, want to increase the ‘national content’ element of projects undertaken. A critical element of this is the employment of local people in technician, engineering and management roles. This in turn requires significant investment in building new training facilities and investing in a country’s own educational infrastructure. Getenergy provides best in class examples of how to make such investments work. Our events include national institutions, universities and technical training facilities many of whom have never attended an oil/gas industry exhibition in the past. It also allows International Oil Companies to demonstrate their ‘value added offering’ in front of existing or potential National Oil Company partners.
