Organised by industry body Subsea UK, the Back to the Future of Subsea conference will consider the potential outlook of the subsea sector, drawing upon developments over the past 20 years and explore what the fourth industrial revolution in subsea may bring.
Enpro Subsea has announced that it has reached a master services agreement (MSA) with Kosmos Energy (formerly Deep Gulf Energy) aimed at providing enhanced subsea architecture and smart standardization via Enpro’s patented flow access module (FAM) technology.
FAM essentially creates an enhanced production ‘USB port’ within the jumper envelope. During the one-day conference, delegates will get the opportunity to hear from experts on a variety of topics including, the digital oilfield, pipeline design engineering, pipe-in-pipe technology and mooring systems.
The FAM technology simplifies their standard well jumper, enabling longer spans and reducing fatigue while enabling project specific technologies (MPFM) retrievable independently of the jumper.
Confirmed speakers for the event include Steve Sasanow of Knighton Enterprises, Peter Hayward of TechnipFMC, Justin Jones of Petrofac, Geoff Lyons of BPP-TECH, Andreas Dracoulis from Haynes and Boone.
Dem Demetriou of Genesis Oil & Gas Consultants, David Brunton of Crondall Energy, Johnny Shield of Subsea Riser Products, Glen Jewell of Frazer-Nash Consultancy and Gareth Davis from Eigen Limited.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, commented: “Over the last 20 years, the subsea industry has experienced significant changes in technology, safety and overall operations.
The award is for 4 FAM systems, which will be installed on South Santa Cruz, Odd Job, Double Team and Kodiak fields. I hope this event will help address some of current and future challenges facing the supply chain and reinforce best practice across the industry.
To ensure the UK continues to lead the way in subsea innovation and technology, awareness of previous events and knowledge is essential. Reflecting on 20 years of subsea allows the industry to learn and plan for what lies ahead.”
We must now build further resilience into our sector by going back to recapture the pioneering spirit from years gone by, moving confidently and profitably into a sustainable future.
Sponsored by 2H Offshore and Petrofac, the Back to the Future of Subsea event will take place on the 22nd November 2018 at the HG Wells Conference Centre in Woking.
On the same evening, Subsea UK will be hosting a networking dinner at the Skylon Restaurant in London, where Neil Gordon will give an industry update on the latest developments in subsea.
Ian Donald, Enpro Subsea CEO, said, “This is significant achievement for Enpro Subsea, we appreciate the opportunity to work with the Kosmos team to help deliver innovative, cost effective projects in record time.
