EEC 2023 To Open With Wood CEO Interview

Ken Gilmartin, CEO of Wood, Confirmed As This year’s Guest For ‘An Interview With…’ During Plenary Session


Day 1 of the two-day Energy Exports Conference in Aberdeen (Tuesday 6th June) will see EIC’s CEO Stuart Broadley host a personal and interactive discussion with Ken Gilmartin, one of the energy sector’s leading voices, allowing the audience to gain insight into his thoughts and opinions on the current market.

The Irish businessman took over as Wood’s chief executive from Robin Watson in July 2022 and spoke of his focus on leading the company into a “new era”. He has recently been vocal in championing expertise in the UK North Sea, as a key hub for Wood’s business.

“We are delighted to be up close and personal with Ken Gilmartin for the anticipated ‘An Interview With…’ on day 1 of the Energy Exports Conference 2023,” said Stuart Broadley, CEO of The Energy Industries Council (EIC).

“Previous interviews have included Sir Ian Wood and Louise Kingham Senior Vice President, Europe and Head of Country, of bp, who have been invited to return to the conference this year in a different capacity. Interviews with stalwarts such as these are always a big audience draw as these guests are the leading voices of our industry. As Ken rightly shares, we have huge levels of expertise in the North Sea developed over decades of oil and gas, and in many other geographies around the world. I look forward to chatting with Ken and delving into the way ahead for Wood and the wider industry.”

Talking ahead of his participation in this year’s Energy Exports Conference Ken says, “Wood is a story of success based on talent, innovation and the ability to play on the world stage. We are remarkable people, trusted by clients, to design, build and advance the world.

“Our local teams are working on world-class projects in over 50 countries and I find it inspiring how this valuable expertise has been developed and exported to make a real impact globally. As an industry, we have a real opportunity in delivering the energy transition – the future is in our hands and we should embrace it.”

The Energy Exports Conference 2023, which takes place at the P&J Live, Aberdeen on the 6th and 7th June, is shaping up to bring the best and most relevant information, opportunities, and assistance within the global energy exports market to one place. With the support of organising and supporting partners, key speakers, international delegates, and EIC experts from around the globe, the free two-day conference brings real-time projects and value to those attending.

Wood will also participate in the contractor update, hydrogen focus panel and the Opportunities in America session, over the course of the conference.
