On the penultimate day of Subsea Expo 2015, Energy Voice sat down with three industry experts to discuss the exhibition and how innovation can lead the way in developing new technology.

Gordon Drummond, chief executive of the newly re-launched NSRI (National Subsea Research Initiative), Ian Phillips, chief executive of OGIC (Oil and Gas Innovation Centre) and Ian Reid, chief executive of CENSIS formed the panel.

The panel discussed the opportunity for the sector to seize upon the decline in oil prices and find new ways to collaborate.

Dr Drummond said the atmosphere at the three-day event had been “upbeat” amongst exhbitors.

Ian Phillips said reaction of delegates seemed at “odds” to the oil price currently facing the oil and gas industry as a whole.
