Welcome to

Subsea Pipelines & Cables 2024


15 – 16 October

Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel Trondheim


Conference language: English

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 encouraged abstracts related to this topic.


Exhibition stand

We offer exhibition space in the mingling area outside the conference hall. Each exhibition stand is 2 meters wide and 1.5 meters deep, including a conference table and electricity. Bring 2 roll-ups and you are set.

Cost for additional exhibition stand require one regular conference participant and are ordered upon registration. The exhibition fee is NOK 10.000 (+25% VAT).



On behalf of the Program Committee and NPF, we look forward to seeing you in Trondheim in October!
