Oil and gas spells opportunity for Rotherham firms - NAMTEC

THE increase in oil and gas prices could present an opportunity to this region's manufacturers, according to the Special Metals Forum (SMF), which is part of NAMTEC (National Metals Technology Centre), based in Rotherham.

The SMF has commissioned a report entitled 'Materials' Supply Chains in the UK's Oil and Gas Market', which provides valuable information for manufacturers and outlines the opportunities for supplying into this potentially lucrative sector.

Alastair Lang of NAMTEC, explains: "There are huge opportunities for local manufacturers to supply their products and services into the oil and gas industry worldwide. The report highlights in which areas there is predicted future growth and how manufacturers can get involved in the supply chain."

The lack of investment over the past two years into new wells means there is now demand in the sector as oil and gas companies respond to the higher prices. This means products and services are needed for new exploration, as well as for upgrading and refurbishing existing facilities.

As part of its support to help this region's manufacturers take advantage of these new opportunities, the useful and informative report is now available from NAMTEC at the reduced fee of £250.

The Special Metals Forum is a national membership organisation for companies manufacturing and processing metals and for users of those metals. The membership also includes the international membership association, the Titanium Information Group as a special interest group.

  Both these organisations provide support services for their members including market access, technology and innovation, and training and education.

To order a copy of the report or for more information about NAMTEC or the Special Metals Forum call 01709 722479, or by emailing: david.stafford@namtec.co.uk.
