Offshore Energy 2012 Kicks Off Today

Robert Kleiburg, Chief Operating Officer at Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands delivered a key note speech on Energy Transition – Business Opportunities in Offshore Energy.

While speaking on the ambitions the European Union has set for the 2050 he said that it will be very challenging to attain those goals, however natural gas is likely to play an important role in the energy transition. What is more, when it comes to business opportunities there is a great potential in renewable energy technologies, especially in the offshore sector.

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.
