macaé oil and gas

Organized by CEPEM, the purpose of the event was to show the new perspectives of the oil and gas market from the perspective of large companies

The Brazilian oil and gas market is starting to show clear signs of recovery, but despite being far from ideal, there is intense movement and articulation in the sector of companies and players specialized in E&P. The Connectivity event that took place in Macaé, at the Hotel Royal Atlântica, organized by CEPEM (Center for Business Psychology) that brought together several representatives of some large companies operating in this market, whose objective was to discuss guidelines and readaptation needs to the new reality, especially , in oil producing municipalities.

The Event brought together representatives from Aker Solutions, MODEC, Porto do Açú, Helix and Tauil & Checker as the speakers, the invited audience was also composed of many other entrepreneurs who work directly and indirectly in the field, with an eye on new trends and projections.

Speaking of projections, it is clear that Aker Solutions is coming strong and competitive! Woodson, company representative and the first speaker after the panel's introduction, made this clear. It acquired many pre-salt projects, in addition to Petrobras, now it has a contract with Statoil and new projects for the city of Macaé (ACCESS THE ARTICLE HERE).

Alexandre Calmon, Energy Practice Partner, presented new graphs and studies on oil production curves in the next 4 years, showing that Brazil will be the largest offshore market, at least in this period if we take into account the number of operating units and the number of people working in this industry.

Already in the cycle of decommissioning that apply to scrap vessels or platforms at the end of the cycle, according to Mauro, is another market that will have mobilizations until 2024, according to current projections in Brazil. In addition, there will be auctions of the units that are idle to make way for new, more modern fronts.

Some HR representatives made it clear on the panel, at least those who were present, that they do not recruit via Facebook or Whatsapp, but use the platform as a complement, so it is necessary to police what you write or follow on your social networks. Even so, there are professionals who find it unethical to use this platform for recruitment purposes. Even in the HR area, there is a lot of technology and study to optimize these activities. Linkedin will be widely used in the coming years, register on this platform as well.
