Subsea UK is hosting a series of lunchtime sessions at Subsea Malaysia which will run alongside Oil and Gas Asia in Kuala Lumpur from 11-13 July.
This free-to-attend format, which was held successfully two years ago, will include a whisky tasting session that provides a networking opportunity for delegates. The event will take place in the Gallery Hospitality Lounge at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore are collectively seen as the Asian Subsea Hub, all offering strong business propositions for the industry. As part of the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) which will propel Malaysia forward into a truly developed nation, the sector is targeting a five percent annual growth until 2020. This presents an opportunity for UK firms to play an important role in supporting the country meet its energy targets by exporting their products, services and expertise.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: “With a strong operator community, Malaysia has seen several UK companies establish local operations. Singapore has traditionally been a strong centre for UK offices and shipping and Indonesia is investing in its port facilities for the potential growth in the region, as well as attracting inward investment from multinationals.
“The reduction of investment in global deep-water projects has forced operators to look at how to maximise recoveries from existing assets. As the basin in Asia matures, managing the integrity of older assets and subsea infrastructure increases. This in turn allows plans for life-of-field extension and the potential to increase subsea tie backs to existing assets. We hope our members will provide insights into how we can work together to tackle these challenges.”
Papers are invited on the following subjects: Adding Value and Cost Efficiency, Market Outlook, Asia and Global, Subsea Processing, Inspection, Repair & Maintenance Technologies, Pipelines and Asset Integrity and Life Extension and Decommissioning.
The deadline for submissions is April 17. The cost to present and to be listed as a sponsor is £250. For further details and to download a submission form, click here.
