Identifying new opportunities and understanding regional challenges are set to be key themes at the 2017 Subsea Asia conference and exhibition, as the call for speakers is launched.
Organised by Subsea UK, Subsea Asia will run from 13-16 September alongside the Oil & Gas Indonesia 2017 conference in Jakarta.
Now in its seventh year, Subsea Asia provides a platform for suppliers in the subsea industry to meet potential clients and showcase technology and expertise that can meet the demand in Asia.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: “At a time when output from mature wells is declining and Asia’s need for energy is at its highest, operators are being pushed to explore more difficult fields in the search for oil and gas. This has led to growth in exploration and production in progressively deeper offshore fields. Our conference will look at the region’s market conditions and opportunities as well as ways on how to improve overall performance in subsea operations.
“Now, the focus is on living in a world where $50 oil is the norm, and increasing performance and maximising returns from assets is in great demand. However, there will still be a need for new projects to add to future production levels and there are indications that new activity is beginning to increase.
“This year’s conference will be partnered with Oil and Gas Indonesia which attracts strong attendance from Asia as well as around the world so it’s a real opportunity for UK companies to explore new opportunities in this region.”
Since the inaugural event in 1995, Oil & Gas Indonesia has provided an opportunity for those working in the Indonesian oil fields to meet with local and international suppliers. The Asia subsea hub of Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore is where the combined activity dominates the Asia Pacific subsea activity and hosts vast industry expertise.
Featured presentation topics include: Market outlook regional and global; Adding value to subsea operations; Pipelines, flowlines and risers; Asset integrity and inspection; Subsea processing and boosting; Cost effective repair and maintenance and Life extension and decommissioning.
The call for speakers is now open and abstracts should be between 200-300 words long. The deadline for submissions is July 14. For more information and to download the submission form, click here.
