Industry experts have been urged to step forward and voice their concerns over the challenges currently facing the sector as a result of the falling oil price.
Subsea UK has made its last call for papers for its annual ROV conference.
The event, which is now in its third year, will be held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre during the final day of the Offshore Europe conference on Friday, September 11 and will debate key industry issues across the globe.
Topics under the spotlight include deepwater construction, operational efficiencies, ROV development, and technological advancements.
The current challenges in the oil and gas industry will also be discussed and speakers are invited to submit their applications.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK said the occasion will welcome movers and shakers from the industry.
He added: “Our ROV Conference has become a sought-after event in the subsea calendar. This year we will again welcome the movers and shakers from the industry to reveal the latest developments, challenges and new solutions from all corners of the world.
“The event also provides a platform for businesses to come together to identify opportunities, drive new technology forward, discover and develop new outcomes and work towards a common goal, building upon the good work which is already being delivered.
“With so many of the globe’s leading subsea companies based here in the north-east of Scotland, the conference has fast become the best place to hear about the latest technological advances in the sector.
“And this year, with the oil price affecting us all, we are holding a high-level expert debate to discuss how we face everyday challenges and ensure that we, as an industry continue to pioneer progression and safeguard the UK’s world-leading position.”
