The innovations required to support the British subsea industry in the lower oil price environment will be explored at Subsea UK’s Life of Field conference in Bristol next month.
Sponsored by Baker Hughes, Frazer Nash Consultancy and Viper Innovations the conference will take place on November 06, at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, Bristol. The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT), has been confirmed as the technical partner for the conference.
A variety of topics will be discussed including control system sustainability, innovative technology and lowering life of field OPEX.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: “Despite signs of oil price recovery, the industry today looks vastly different than it did five years ago and companies are still working to adapt to the changes. The focus is now shifting to full life of field support and innovation, in both technology and cost, to make fields financially viable in the new climate.
“The Life of Field conference is designed to give companies a platform to discuss the ongoing industry wide challenges and explore how the subsea industry must change to ensure it stays competitive and relevant.”
