Subsea UK has called for industry experts to step forward and voice their concerns over the challenges currently facing the sector as a result of the falling oil price at its ROV conference in September.
The industry body has launched a call for papers for the annual conference, now in its third year, which is focused on remotely operated vehicle activities.
The event, which takes place at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre during the final day of the Offshore Europe conference on Friday 11th September, will examine and debate the key industry issues and hot topics in relation to subsea activity across the globe.
Subsea UK is calling for speakers to step up to the plate and make their views known in a bid for companies to take a more open and collaborative approach when looking for the short and long-term solutions.
Deepwater construction, operational efficiencies, ROV development, technological advancements and the challenges posed by a changing marketplace will be amongst the topics under the spotlight at the event.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK said: “Our ROV Conference has become a sought-after event in the subsea calendar. This year we will again welcome the movers and shakers from the industry to reveal the latest developments, challenges and new solutions from all corners of the world.
“The event also provides a platform for businesses to come together to identify opportunities, drive new technology forward, discover and develop new outcomes and work towards a common goal, building upon the good work which is already being delivered.
“With so many of the globe’s leading subsea companies based here in the north-east of Scotland, the conference has fast become the best place to hear about the latest technological advances in the sector. And this year, with the oil price affecting us all, we are holding a high-level expert debate to discuss how we face everyday challenges and ensure that we, as an industry continue to pioneer progression and safeguard the UK’s world-leading position.”
Subsea UK expects over 100 delegates expected at the ROV 2015 Conference.
