Tailwind participates in Oil & Gas UK's 'Energy of the Future' programme

19th of September 2019


Tailwind is proud to have partnered with Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) and ITN Productions in ‘Energy of the Future’, a sponsored programme which features key industry interviews and news-style reports. Tailwind is a key participant in both the Oil & Gas Authority and OGUK’s common targets of maximising the hydrocarbon economic resource from the UK Continental Shelf. Tailwind is a new company borne out of a clear model. We have stepped into assets with a focussed strategy of executing activities and bringing investment to assets and infrastructure that had previously been de-prioritised by Supermajors and Large Independents. Full focus on organic in-field opportunities such as new wells, workover campaigns and brownfield developments combined with increased operation and cost synergies has breathed new life into our assets, unlocking new reserves, increasing production and extending the economically viable life of the fields. Our company is a great place to work – empowered employees with real accountability with an ability to directly see their actions through to hard results. Tailwind is a flat organisation with a fully engaged and accessible management team ensuring the minimum hierarchy providing that platform for personal responsibility. We treat our employees, stakeholders and industry partners with equal respect and expect reciprocal relationships. To see Tailwind’s business model, culture and partnerships click to play the video.
