The main stage at Underwater Intervention 2019 will feature a two-part industry panel discussion on the future of the subsea oilfield.
Hosted by BP, the discussions will focus on the direction of the Subsea Oil & Gas Infrastructure’s Inspection, Maintenance and Repair (IMR) market. This is an historic event whereby the major oil & gas offshore operating companies will get together, in an open forum, to communicate their vision for the offshore oilfield of the future. The operator discussion will follow the next day with selected service companies gathering to communicate their vision for fulfilling the needs portrayed by the operators.
As the industry and the market realigns to the prolonged downturn, the IMR market is likely to see structural shifts, greater collaboration within the supply chain, restructuring and consolidation and rapid evolution of digital advances. The oil and gas industry needs automation and digitization in pursuit of continuous improvement for the industry.
On Tuesday, February 5, from 1:30-3:00, BP will host an industry panel discussion in which select operators will share and discuss their wants and needs to service companies whom will deliver the step change in technology. Leading the discussion will be Mark Siegmund, Sr. Subsea Systems Technical Specialist. The Operator Panel will allow for each company’s representative to voice their views on the future of this technology.
On Wednesday, February 6, from 1:30-3:00, in response to the operator panel, select service companies will share their vision and thoughts on the requirements discussed during the Tuesday operator panel discussion. It will also be an opportunity for those representatives to discuss how companies will meet the vision for this future.
These discussions are relevant and timely, and provide the vision for service companies to develop and pilot the necessary technology for the future. Operators need the rapid evolution of technology and digital advances to drive autonomy, efficiency and cost-effectiveness, while improving safety performance for the world’s energy future.
