Malcolm Webb, Oil & Gas UK’s chief executive, said: “It’s that time of year again when the UK oil and gas industry gathers to celebrate its brightest stars. This year, the competition is even stiffer and it gives me great pleasure to see such an array of outstanding talent on display.

All winners will be presented with a specially commissioned glass trophy before an audience of leading industry figures. With over 500 tickets for the event already sold, it’s set to be a sell-out. Book a place at the awards ceremony now to avoid disappointment.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
