GCE Subsea Names New Chairman

Norway’s GCE Subsea has elected Jon Arve Sværen as its new chairman of the board of the subsea cluster.

Sværen is currently employed as VP Business Strategy Processing in OneSubsea.

“I am humble, yet proud of being asked to take the position as chairman of the GCE Subsea board,” Sværen says. “I am convinced that subsea technology has a bright future despite the current downturn in the industry. Subsea technology will be required to optimise oil production from the many challenging field developments and tail-end production of mature fields in the world.”

“The nomination committee has, in my opinion, put together a very experienced Board with extensive subsea and business expertise,” says Owe Hagesæther, CEO at GCE Subsea.

In addition to the new chairman, GCE Subsea also welcomed other new members of the board: Tove Ormevik, Offshore Installation Manager Skarv SPFO, Aker BP; Elin Sjødin Drange, Head of Business Development, Municipality of Bergen; Mads Arild Eidem, Head of Section for Materials & Subsea Operations, DNV GL Bergen; Lasse Ståløy, CEO, Radøygruppen; Magnar Aaland, Managing Director, Advantec Group; Silje Skarstein, Head of Services Norway, Aker Solutions; Sissel Rogne, Managing Director, Institute of Marine Research.

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.
