Subsea Controls 2019

Kristiansand
25.09.19 - 26.09.19

The annual conference on subsea technology

The conference will this year aim for an international audience, as we consider this professional arena to be of interest for the whole subsea business, not only for operators and vendors on the Norwegian continental shelf. We have also underlined this year the focus on Subsea Controls. We will address questions on All-electric, Functional Safety and Condition Monitoring in a thorough way. We will do this through multiple lectures on each subject originating from different point of views, both for new field developments and brown fields perspective.

Actors working with subsea control systems and technology, have lived through a period which has challenged their system solutions and products. However, this has helped to improve both quality and performance of new solutions and products set in operation. Innovations in subsea intervention have come to light. This provide new exciting opportunities in the borderland between field control and field operations.

At the end of day one, we offer an exciting panel discussion. The topic will be on “Future Interfaces”, lead by a representative from a major operator – Equinor. He will most certainly challenge the participants on how he shall position his business to meet the new technical solutions.

Day two of the conference, is focused around exchanging experiences from different operators. But: at the end of the day we will also take time to try to look more into the future. What awaits the subsea operators in near future, and what technical innovations will be available in a further perspective?
