We caught up with Damian Bates, Editor-in-Chief of Aberdeen Journals, on the first day of OTC to find out his expectations of the show against the current backdrop of the low oil price.
Damian highlights collaboration as a continued challenge for the industry. It is happening, but is it happening fast enough? He calls on the industry to ‘grasp the nettle’ if they want to be ahead of the game. Damian also discusses M&A in the industry and the opportunities this creates for smaller, niche companies.
