News and events Updates from the EIC

About the EIC

Established in 1943, the EIC is the leading trade association for companies working in the global energy industries.

Our member companies, who supply goods and services across the oil and gas, power, nuclear and renewables sectors, have the experience and expertise that operators and contractors require.

As a not-for-profit organisation with offices in key international locations, the EIC’s role is to help members maximise commercial opportunities worldwide.


EIC LIVE events

Now that more than half of the year is gone and restrictions related to the pandemic are being continuously eased worldwide, the EIC is glad to still be present in numerous in-person conferences and exhibitions.

After successfully delivering our flagship event, the Energy Exports Conference, in June, we have many more coming up, including EIC-organised UK Pavilions in events from Germany, the UAE and Singapore. You can learn more about these on the right.

Conferences from EIC coming up in 2022

Hydrogen Technology Conference & Expo Europe

When: 19–20 October 2022

Location: Bremen, Germany

Why attend? The Hydrogen Technology Conference & Expo Europe is a solutions-driven forum that will explore the technical and financial obstacles hydrogen must overcome to become part of a deeply decarbonised, deeply renewable energy system. It also considers the new technologies necessary to achieve this.

This must-attend event will bring together the entire supply chain to discuss everything from technologies and solutions for low-carbon hydrogen production, efficient storage, transport and infrastructure to advanced design, testing and development, manufacturing solutions and advanced materials for hydrogen fuel cells.

The EIC will be organising the UK Pavilion at the event. If you are interested in exhibiting with us or want more information, contact the International Trade Team by emailing


Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) 2022

When: 31 October–3 November 2022

Location: Abu Dhabi, UAE

Why attend? ADIPEC has become one of the world’s most influential energy events and an important meeting place where professionals convene to engage with and identify the opportunities that will unlock new value in an evolving energy landscape.

With 80% of attendees being a decision-maker, purchaser or influencer, ADIPEC is an exceptional opportunity for businesses to network with existing and new customers and review the services, products and solutions that will enhance performance, increase efficiencies and optimise costs.

Having taken part in ADIPEC for more than 20 years, it is with pleasure that the EIC returns to ADIPEC to host the UK Pavilion. If you are interested in exhibiting with us or want more information, contact the International Trade Team by emailing


Offshore South East Asia (OSEA) 2022

When: 15–17 November 2022

Location: Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Why attend? Offshore South East Asia (OSEA) returns to Singapore in 2022 as an in-person event at the forefront of offshore oil, gas and emerging zero-carbon energy sources, pioneering a global shift in the energy industry. Embracing decarbonisation and digitalisation, a refreshed tradeshow and conference will keep the focus on developments in oil and gas and also showcase opportunities in offshore wind and hydrogen.

As the energy transition takes hold and the industry prepares to pivot, so will OSEA. Oil and gas companies will exhibit alongside wind power project developers, EPC, field operators, equipment providers, technology, digitalisation and decarbonisation companies.

The UK Pavilion will be managed by the EIC. If you are interested in exhibiting with us or want more information, contact the International Trade Team by emailing


External affairs

We have had numerous engagements with key stakeholders recently as we moved on from the North Sea Decarbonisation Conference to the Energy Exports Conference. The team liaised with many key politicians to make sure that supply chain asks and the ability to engage with global opportunities are fully recognised.

With the publication of Survive and Thrive VI, the policy asks of governments have become sharper, and we are engaging more heavily with our members to ensure that we are properly reflecting your views and looking for your engagement.

Our discussions have ranged from environmental, social and governance issues to export opportunities and the out-of-sync policies that are currently in play. We have open consultations on nuclear, and are looking at and engaging with the Energy Security Bill.

Please feel free to contact us and discuss any policy, government or communications questions – we are always happy to talk.

Contact: Rebecca Groundwater, Head of External Affairs


EIC Insight Report: Survive & Thrive VI

The sixth edition of our Survive & Thrive report provides insights on the state of the energy industry, based on extensive interviews with the leaders and senior executives of 63 energy supply chain companies from around the world.

The report shows that, following a heavy focus on diversification and energy transition during the past two years – including a drive for renewables – in 2022, energy companies are now shifting gears back to investment in oil and gas. This is in response to recent geopolitical events resulting from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as well as challenges around the delay of energy transition initiatives and attractive higher margins from more lucrative oil and gas projects.
