North-east pupils have taken part in a project to encourage more young people to consider a career in the oil and gas industry.
The OPITO Energise Your Future (EYF) event took place at Subsea Expo yesterday at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
Subsea Expo is the largest conference of its kind in Europe with 150 exhibitors.
More than 110 pupils from eight schools attended.
Organisations hope that offering students an opportunity to speak with companies in the industry, and explaining their firm’s role, will help attract future employees.
