Today’s subsea industry faces manifold challenges. It’s threatened by onshore, in the form of shale. It needs to remain vigilant towards capex inflation and must provide timely payback. It also needs remain relevant as we navigate the global energy transition.

These are the challenges that the subsea industry is using its core competencies, knowledge and experience to tackle. To accelerate this transformation, the conference organisers have announced Subsea – Enabling Smarter Solutions as the key theme for the 2020 Underwater Technology Conference (UTC).

UTC 2020, which will be held in Bergen, 16-18 June, is the industry’s longest running and most respected, subsea technology focused event. Celebrating 40 years since it was first held this year, this internationally renowned subsea event has continually evolved to meet today’s challenges, and this year is no different.

With Subsea – Enabling Smarter Solutions as its theme, the organisers want to help the industry to move towards a long-term sustainable vision. It’s a vision that’s not only low carbon but also highly capable, transferable and exportable.

Whether it’s future remote and autonomous fields, new subsea energies, smart technologies to support lean and effective brownfield projects or super-efficient and intelligent frontier, ultra-deepwater projects, UTC intends to help to drive the transition.

The UTC call for abstracts is now open.
