2016 Show Recap

Allison Tonkin | | Advisory Board, Attendance, Exhibits, Sponsors, Technical Program

We would like to sincerely thank all those who attended MCE Deepwater Development 2016 in Pau, France.  We all certainly faced both Industry and non-Industry challenges this year!  However, based on the response we have heard, this year’s show was a very positive experience for almost all who attended.  Many thanks to Total for serving as a fantastic Host.  Their commitment to all aspects of the conference is truly commendable.  The Evening Soirée was certainly something that we will all speak about for years to come.

We would also like to thank the Sponsors, Exhibitors and Speakers, without the support of which, the show would be impossible to organize.  For a complete wrap up on the 2016 show, please follow the link for information on Attendees, Demographics, Technical Proceedings, as well as a growing number of photos taken throughout the show.

Welcome to MCEDD 2016

Allison Tonkin | | Attendance

We would like to sincerely thank you for your interest in MCE Deepwater Development 2016. While times may be uncertain, I believe that those attending this year’s event represent those eager to voice their concerns and discuss solutions. Our industry will survive and, eventually, thrive once again. I look forward, over the next week, to learning what we are accomplishing so that we can continue to work through the challenges we face.

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Total for hosting us this year and being so critical to the direction, content and quality of the event. We would also like to thank our distinguished Advisory Board that continues to maintain the event’s relevance to the deepwater space and grow our technical excellence year to year.

This downturn has proved unique to its predecessors and as such the industry is responding with new and innovative approaches as solutions to pave the way for recovery. This year’s theme of collaborating to realize cost reductions as a core component of managing this downturn is mirrored throughout the event. This year’s technical program brings together some of the strongest and most committed companies in the deepwater space to discuss how working together, focusing on enabling technologies and learning from our experiences will continue to empower us to move beyond current hurdles and realize our future potential. Experts in their field will share their knowledge and hopefully inspire constructive communication among the attendees.

Oil companies, engineering companies and supply chain members will need to collaborate and rely on innovative solutions to maintain the economic viability of the difficult resources we target. MCE Deepwater Development promotes a conducive environment through technical presentations, a comprehensive exhibition floor and numerous networking events that we hope enables further advancement of the fundamental changes we, as an industry, need to undergo in the near-term.

I trust that the next week will be productive for all. We will meet the challenges that lie ahead and be stronger for it.

Bring Your Own Brick

Total CEO says company will not cut jobs, will need workers “when the price goes up”

Allison Tonkin | | Uncategorized

The CEO of French oil and gas giant Total said in a radio interview on Tuesday that the company would not cut jobs as its peers have done, despite an expected hit to its 2015 results, according to Reuters.

Speaking to Europe 1, Patrick Pouyanne said Total’s results from last year may fall 20 percent. The company’s full-year presentation is scheduled for Feb. 11.

Pouyanne said that all of the company’s job cuts have come from allowing workers to retire without recruiting new employees to fill their positions. He told Europe 1 that over the course of the last year as oil prices fell, Total scaled back its hiring, brining in just 700 new employees, versus the 1,200 that had been planned.

Pouyanne told Europe 1 that Total would not treat employment as an “adjustment variable” during the downturn in oil prices, and that the company will need its workers “when the price goes up.”

Total announced in September that the company would reduce 2016 spending, down to between $20 billion and $21 billion from the $24 billion spent in 2015. Last February, the company’s chief financial officer said Total would seek $4 billion in cost cuts to weather the crash in oil prices. That would mean 2,000 job cuts, through attrition and layoffs, by 2017.

Pouyanne’s interview comes after BP announced last week that the British oil major would cut an additional 4,000 jobs in 2016, or about 5 percent of its global workforce.
