Offshore Pipeline & Risers 2020

Created with Sketch. TRONDHEIM

Offshore Pipelines & Risers 13 and 14 October!

-Smart and Innovative Solutions-

The traditional two-day Offshore Pipeline and Risers conference will take place this October!

The Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) will adapt to advice and guidelines given by Government regarding the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to be able to host the conference in Trondheim as planned in combination with a live steam from the conference for those unable to attend physically.


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.


Submit your abstract:

We are still looking for abstracts on the latest Smart and Innovative Solutions related to Design, Installation and Operation of Offshore Pipelines and Risers. In the event of restrictions on travel or travel bans, we will allow speakers to presenters remotely via videoconference. We have therefore extended the abstract deadline so please submit your abstract today!



Interested speakers are invited to submit an abstract (~300 words) describing the main ideas of their presentation. Abstracts should focus on technical/managerial classifications, R&D, new technologies or recent project/case studies. Joint presentations between pipeline operators and technology providers are welcome.
Each speaker gets a presentation time of 20 minutes. All presentations will be made available online for the conference attendees. Speakers get 50% discount off conference fee. Papers are not required.
• Conference language: English.
• Abstract to be submitted to: Tonje Raknes (NPF),
• Extended Deadline for abstract submission: 1st June, 2020


We look forward hearing from you and hope to see you Trondheim in October!
