For its seventh Webinar in the Covid-19: A Leadership Perspective series, which takes place on August 12th at 12.30 pm UAE time (8:30 am GMT, 2:00 pm IST), The Maritime Standard is turning the spotlight on a sector of the shipping industry that is vital for the region – Offshore, Oil and Gas. Maritime companies active in supporting offshore, oil and gas operations in the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent face specific challenges which merit highlighting.
A high-level panel with many decades of relevant industry experience is being assembled to discuss the key issues facing the segment and assess how best these challenges caused by the pandemic can be overcome. Participants are expected to include executives at leading offshore vessel operators; providers of services for rig manufacturing and repair; offshore ship agency and logistics and marine services.
Collectively and individually the panelists will be able to paint a clear picture of what it has been like for the offshore, oil and gas sector, for both shore and onboard staff; the changes that have been made since the onset of the crisis; the issues that remain; and medium to long term future prospects.
