Get out there and do it! This was the message from leaders in the subsea industry today at the opening session of Subsea Expo. Operators Apache and EnQuest were joined by tier one subsea contractors Subsea 7 and Proserv in a rallying call for the industry to pull together and get things done, despite the concern over the decline in the price of oil. Collaboration and innovation will drive the industry forward. While over-engineering and aversion to risk are holding us back.

Since 2013 when it launched, independent project services consultancy Cambla, has exceeded its turnover target by more than 45%. The company has been nominated in the new enterprise category at the Subsea Expo 2015 awards in Aberdeen. Owner and project services manager, Alexander MacLeod, spoke to Energy Voice about their recent nomination and the launch of their Schedule Animation Tool (S.A.T).
Forum Energy Technologies has launched its latest generation subsea robotic system at Subsea Expo. The company, which is the world’s largest manufacturer of underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), has created the XLX- C ROV. It is more compact than the highly successful XLX model, but with similar capabilities.
Subsea UK is focused on promoting the breadth of expertise and experience that sets the British subsea sector apart. The Subsea UK Awards are an opportunity to publicly recognise the talent and innovation demonstrated by both companies and individuals, while showcasing the new developments in technology that highlight why the UK is the world-leader in subsea. While the oil and gas industry enjoys a year round calendar of awards schemes, Subsea UK believed that there should be a dedicated celebration of the growth, excellence and talent demonstrated purely in the subsea sector and, in 2007, the inaugural awards were presented.
