Due to the increasing spread of Covid-19, the Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) has decided to arrange this year's Offshore Pipelines & Risers Conference as a webinar.
NPF takes its precautions seriously where health and safety will always be of the highest priority. This goes for the oil & gas sector at large and we have received information from several regarding both travel restrictions and conference bans in the months to come.
It is sad not to be able to physically gather in Trondheim for both professional and social networking. The conference is one of NPF's most popular conferences, and we know that you, like us, have been looking forward to it. NPF will nevertheless do its outmost as an organiser to ensure that this year's conference will be just as good despite the change in format.
Theme of the seminar:
While the market has been in recovery for a few years with more sustainable prices for oil and gas and the international demand for energy is increasing, the new boundary conditions of politics and expectations for more cost-effective solutions, puts pressure onto the industry. At the same time, the activity forecast related to subsea pipelines and risers indicate a doubling in the activity over the next years which suggest plenty of opportunities ahead. Innovation and cost-effective solutions are ever more important with the recent downturn fresh in mind. Hence, finding more efficient ways to design, install and operate pipeline systems is seen to be increasingly important to stay ahead of the pack.
The program is now published and you will be hearing from some of the following companies:
NTNU/IMT (Institutt for marin teknikk)
IKM Ocean Design
Abstract DEADLINE is now closed.
Thanks to everyone that have submitted an abstract. Interested speakers have been contacted and we hope to publish a full conference program this week.
We look forward seeing you at our digital conference this October!
