Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel Trondheim


Conference language: English

The abstract submissions for Subsea Pipelines & Cables 2024 are now open!

We strongly encourage industry professionals to submit an abstract.


NPF is pleased to invite the subsea pipeline, riser, umbilical, and cable community again to Trondheim for the traditional two-day conference. We are delighted to invite you to this popular networking forum where recent achievements, case studies, industry trends, and new developments are discussed and presented.

The conference format will address topics related to design, installation, operation, and new technology solutions. As always, this conference will include technical, field-specific, and project-specific presentations and a good time for networking. There will also be a strong focus on future developments with a national and international perspective.

Recent incidents have highlighted the vulnerability of pipelines and cables to deliberate sabotage and accidental damage. The Nord Stream pipelines, the Baltic Connector pipeline, and recent incidents to subsea cables serve as cautionary tales, prompting renewed attention to security measures and risk mitigation strategies. With this new reality, we also encourage abstracts related to this topic.

Submit your abstract:

We ask for Abstracts within, but not limited to, the below topics:

Subsea Pipelines & Risers:

  • Protection against vessel-related risk. (Anchoring interference, bottom trawling, etc.).

Joint presentations between energy companies, contractors, suppliers, and technology providers are welcome.
