Offshore oil and gas safety in focus
Dubai, June 3, 2013
The pressing need to improve the safety of offshore assets and crew in the region will be addressed at a forum, to be held next week in Abu Dhabi.
The Offshore Support Vessel Technology 2013 Forum, organised by IQPC Dubai, will be held from June 9 to 12 at Le Royal Meridien.
Industry experts will present ground-breaking case studies and highlight new and innovative technology, at the conference, accompanied by two interactive workshops.
“Even though local oil companies have been operating offshore for over 50 years, their focus was to discover more onshore oil and gas reserves. However, onshore acreage is becoming increasingly difficult to find and many existing fields are beginning to age. Therefore, the region’s oil producers are being forced to shift their focus to offshore opportunities in the Gulf, the Mediterranean and the Red Sea,” said Adnoc marine expert Dr Mootaz Khaled, who is a keynote speaker on the programme.
Marine and offshore experts from the region’s leading oil corporations will also share their expertise, experience and key challenges they face to improve offshore safety records and growth strategies as they look to upscale their offshore operations.
Solution providers attending the event, including Aveva Solutions, Etihad Ship Building, Offshore Solutions and Emirates Classification (Tasneef) will address these critical concerns in the industry. - TradeArabia News Service
