DRIFT Offshore addresses offshore skills shortage at OTC

Meghan Bowers and Kyle Pitman. Co-founders of Drift Offshore.

OTC has long served as a central hub for energy professionals worldwide, and as the world transitions to a more sustainable and low-carbon future, DRIFT is focusing on ensuring the subsea has the skills it needs.

Co-founders Meghan Bowers and Kyle Pitman will be on the ground at the show and available to meet to discuss how DRIFT can support companies with the people and expert support services they need for safe and successful project execution.

Kyle is a panellist at the OGV Group Business Breakfast, where this year’s theme is ‘Leadership in a new energy era’. Kyle will share insights on how attracting new talent is key to future-proofing our industry with qualified personnel for a safe energy transition. Find out more about the event here.

On a lighter note, DRIFT Is sponsoring the OGV Group Drinks Reception, where delegates can relax, unwind, and network after a busy show. Find out more here.

Kyle Pitman said, “The skills shortage is an issue particularly pertinent to the energy transition. While it brings new opportunities to the subsea sector, it also makes new demands – not least in terms of requiring the right people, with the right skills, to support it.”

“At DRIFT, we believe in a holistic approach to creating and maintaining the skills that our industry needs. We believe working in partnership with individuals and companies across the sector is crucial to ensure offshore workers are equipped with the skills and hands-on experience they need for the future.”
