Offshore Pipelines & Risers
Welcome to Offshore Pipelines & Risers in October!
The Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) is once again hosting its traditional two day Offshore Pipelines and Risers conference in Trondheim. The biennial conference has for three decades been the most popular meeting and knowledge-sharing venue for the Norwegian offshore pipeline and riser industry.
After a tough period of low activity, cuts and restructuring within the industry, the market is in recovery following more “normal” prices for oil and gas. The oil and gas business will continue to be the most important industry in Norway for many decades to come. The new boundary conditions of politics, economics etc have led to numerous mergers, acquisitions and trading of offshore licenses, resulting in a new landscape of operators and industry players.
In the meantime, the geological understanding of the Barent Sea is increasing and new discoveries have been made as the region is awaiting the ripple effects of the Johan Castberg development. This will help create a new hub in the North, as well as being an important stepping stone with field development solutions for remote and sub-arctic areas. Further South, the huge Johan Sverdrup oil field is gradually being constructed with a planned production start in 2019. Mature fields like Ekofisk, Gullfaks, Troll, Snorre, Oseberg, Njord and many others are simultaneously being redeveloped. These life extension programmes will look to expand their production capacity for the next 20 – 40 years.
During the rough spell with lower oil price focus has been on innovation, cost-effective solutions challenging old industry “truths” and practices. Finding more efficient ways to design, install and operate pipeline systems is seen as key elements for survival. The committee have received many abstracts of outstanding quality reflecting recent technology developments, cost efficiency mindset and the latest project experience. We are very pleased to see such a wide range of interesting topics to be presented this year.
With this in mind, we look forward to seeing you in Trondheim in October!
