The past, present and future of the subsea industry will be discussed at an event near London next month.
Subsea UK’s Back to the Future of Subsea conference will consider the sector’s prospects, drawing on developments over the past 20 years.
Industry figures will also explore what the fourth industrial revolution in subsea may bring.
The event will take place on November 22 at the HG Wells Conference Centre in Woking.
Speakers include Steve Sasanow of Knighton Enterprises, Peter Hayward of TechnipFMC, Justin Jones of Petrofac, Geoff Lyons of BPP-TECH, Andreas Dracoulis from Haynes and Boone, Dem Demetriou of Genesis Oil & Gas Consultants, David Brunton of Crondall Energy, Johnny Shield of Subsea Riser Products, Glen Jewell of Frazer-Nash Consultancy and Gareth Davis from Eigen Limited.
Subsea UK chief executive Neil Gordon said: “Over the last 20 years, the subsea industry has experienced significant changes in technology, safety and overall operations. We must now build further resilience into our sector by going back to recapture the pioneering spirit from years gone by, moving confidently and profitably into a sustainable future.
“To ensure the UK continues to lead the way in subsea innovation and technology, awareness of previous events and knowledge is essential. Reflecting on 20 years of subsea allows the industry to learn and plan for what lies ahead. I hope this event will help address some of current and future challenges facing the supply chain and reinforce best practice across the industry.”
