IoD Aberdeen members and guests will get an insight into the development of a new £6 million GDF Suez exploration and production base in Aberdeen.
Rob Buchan, General Manager in Aberdeen for GDF Suez E&P is the speaker at the Institute of Directors Aberdeen lunch on Thursday, October 8.
Commenting on the event, IoD Aberdeen chairman Ken McEwen said:
“We were delighted to be able to arrange an event focussing on the new GDF Suez base so soon after it was announced. It will give our members an insight into what the new base will mean for Aberdeen and what opportunities there are for the offshore oil and gas supply chain.
“The level of interest is shown by the fact that the lunch was fully booked almost a month before the event.”
A University of Aberdeen graduate Rob Buchan worked for Dowell Schlumberger, then BP before joining GDF Suez last year as UK E&P Operations Manager.
GDF Suez, the world’s third largest energy company, has 200,000 employees throughout the world and, in 2008, it had revenues of €83.1 billion (£73 billion).
