Underwater operations and their potential for extending the life of UK North Sea fields will be in the spotlight at the fast-looming SPE Offshore Europe oil and gas show.
One of the conference sessions taking place during the biennial, four-day event at the new P&J Live venue from September 3-6 will focus on the innovative technology and strategies being developed to manage the late life of subsea systems.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of industry body Subsea UK, will chair the session, which takes place from 10am to noon in OE’s Late Life and Decommission Zone Theatre on Friday, September 6.
Industry experts will discuss the latest innovations in remote operations and interventions, as well as smart subsea technology.
Mr Gordon said the management of subsea systems in late life was vital for maximising production from UK North Sea oil and gas fields.
He added: “Our session at Offshore Europe presents an opportunity to hear from the companies at the forefront of developing innovative technology and operations which have the capacity to extend the life of fields and maximise economic recovery.”
SPE Offshore Europe exhibition director Simon Marshall said: “Subsea UK’s session is an excellent addition to our Life Extension and Decom Zone Theatre which has been expanded this year to include late-life management.
“This high level of discussion into how companies can maximise economic recovery is precisely what we were looking to encourage.”
