Energy Security in Europe

The Energean View - 01/04/2021

In recent history the topic of global energy security has rarely been of such urgent importance. To overcome Europe’s current crisis, governments must review their imports and rethink their approach to energy system policy and regulation. For the oil and gas industry, whilst no single company can claim to have the solution, we do have a significant role to play, working to support newly prioritised energy security objectives.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and wider economic and geopolitical factors has resulted in an energy crisis in Europe that will ripple across the globally interconnected energy market. Russia supplies 40% of the EU’s gas, and a quarter of its crude oil. Unfolding events make that dependency appear even more myopic. The entire European energy system assumes Russia will always deliver. Until late, this mutual dependency has had no downside, leaving countries searching for solutions to reduce the reliance on Russia.

A word from our Chair on International Women's Day 2022

The Energean View - 08/03/2022

Karen Simon - Independent Non-Executive Chair, Energean Plc

This year's International Women's Day focuses on building a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination to achieve gender parity. As the world emerges from a pandemic and faces immediate challenges from the war in Europe to the inter-related issues of energy security and climate change, we need to make sure that the aim of achieving a gender-balanced society is not overshadowed and that momentum is not lost. In order to #BreakTheBias, it’s clear that both individuals and businesses collectively must play a role in reinforcing awareness of the need for creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive world.

This change must come from the top; decision-makers, particularly within our industry which has traditionally been a male-dominated one, need to think more openly – beyond their own perspectives. Instead of seeing a drilling engineer as a "man's job", preconceptions need to be challenged so we think beyond that and consider women for the role. By creating platforms to showcase women's skillsets, we can assist in this process.

 Karen Simon - Independent Non-Executive Chair, Energean Plc

This year’s International Women’s Day (8 March) is focused on women in leadership and challenging gender bias and inequality in order to achieve greater parity in the workplace. To achieve this, companies need to establish more opportunities for women to shine and undertake open and honest conversations on promoting women to leadership positions. And men need to be included in these conversations.

Those with the power to appoint and promote must think more openly – beyond their own perspectives. Instead of seeing a drilling engineer as a “man’s job”, they must challenge themselves to think beyond that and consider women for the role. By creating platforms to showcase women’s skill sets we can assist in this process.
