Event Summary:
ONS is one of two major oil and gas shows in Europe, alternating years with Offshore Europe in Aberdeen. Over 1500 companies exhibited at ONS 2012, occupying some five acres of net stand space. About 40,000 visitors registered at the event. The concurrent conference and seminar attracts speakers such as Norway's prime minister and CEO's of major oil companies and service providers. Norway is the world's third largest net exporter of oil, and is now growing into a major exporter of gas as well. It will in the near future supply 30 percent of Europe's gas. Exploration has expanded from the North Sea to the Norwegian Sea, and recent significant discoveries in the Barents Sea north of Norway have led to development of major production facilities there as well. In addition to the attractiveness of the Norwegian market, one can add Russia, too. Russian companies both exhibit at ONS and visit the show looking for technology and partners. ONS is truly an international trade show and has proven to be a very fertile ground for export successes. Norway, as the world's third largest exporter of both crude oil and natural gas, continues to be at the forefront of efforts to develop offshore resources in ever more challenging environments. ONS 2014 is an excellent venue for showcasing U.S. products, technology and services to the global offshore oil and gas market. Innovative ideas, new solutions and new approaches to economic and environmental challenges facing the industry are all part of the exhibition and conference of ONS 2014. At ONS 2012, 1,50+companies showcased world-class technology and services to 40,000+ buyers and visitors from 100 nations. About 30 U.S. companies exhibited at ONS in 2012 either in the USA Pavilion, in independent exhibits, or with agents and distributors. It is well-known that the Norwegian offshore oil fields are past peak production. However, the technological requirements of finding and extracting oil and gas from deeper rock formations are even greater. Therefore the market for companies that provide critical technology and services is continuing at a very high level.
