Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Somerset, Annie Maw, has officially presented Viper Subsea with The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation at a ceremony at the company’s Portishead head office which took place on Friday August 19.

Viper Subsea is an engineering company that provides consultancy and develops products and services for the global subsea oil and gas sector. The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation was awarded to the company for its V-LIFE Electrical Insulation Resistance Improvement System.

Speaking at the presentation, HM Lord-Lieutenant, said: “It is a great honour and a privilege to be presenting this award on behalf of Her Majesty to Viper Subsea Technology. We in Somerset are especially proud that this innovative work is being undertaken in our county.”

The Queen’s Award in Innovation is awarded following recommendation from the Prime Minister and was conferred on April 21, 2016, Her Majesty’s birthday.

“Receiving the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation is a pinnacle in achievement for the V-LIFE system,” explained Viper Subsea managing director Neil Douglas. “This is a product that typifies the spirit of innovation and excellence which is at the heart of the Viper Subsea culture, and which is shared by all staff. Although less than three years old, V-LIFE has already secured several accolades and has been instrumental in establishing the company at the forefront of engineering technology in the subsea sector. The Queen’s Award for Innovation is one which all staff at Viper Subsea can be proud of.”

Previously, V-LIFE has been awarded the Innovation of the Year award at the Business Leader Awards 2015; the prestigious Innovation & Technology Award at the Subsea UK Business Awards 2014; and the Technology Innovation of the Year award at the Private Business Awards 2014.

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.
