Chevron Upstream Europe’s managing director Craig May will anchor Aberdeen’s first Deep Offshore Technology Conference (DOT) as keynote speaker.
The conference, which has been showcasing pioneering technology for the past 30 years, is expected to attract 1,300 people from 33 different countries to the city.
May will discuss the industry’s deepwater challenges and opportunities.
He said: “The increasing cost and complexity of deepwater developments presents a need for both existing technology to develop and new technologies to be applied.
“Addressing these issues allows us to improve everything from engineering innovation such as pumping, long-distance power and tiebacks to well placement and recovery.
“DOT is the place to learn about these deepwater project enhancements from a global perspective and share an industry outlook on the current and future deepwater market.”
DOT will be held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre from October 14 to 16.
David Paganie, conference director, added: “Keeping with the tradition of DOT, the programme aims to confront the technical challenges related to the lifecycle development of oil and gas in deepwater basins by sharing collective experiences and new technologies to improve the quality, safety, and economics of current and future endeavours.”
