The Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) has announced the dates for the popular Offshore Pipeline and Risers conference in Trondheim. The biennial conference has for three decades been the most popular meeting and knowledge-sharing venue for the Norwegian offshore pipeline and riser industry.
“Smart and Innovative Solutions” is the theme of this year’s conference.
While the market has been in recovery for a few years with more sustainable prices for oil and gas and the international demand for energy is increasing, the new boundary conditions of politics and expectations for more cost-effective solutions, puts pressure onto the industry. At the same time, the activity forecast related to subsea pipelines and risers indicate a doubling in the activity over the next years which suggest plenty of opportunities ahead. Innovation and cost-effective solutions are ever more important with the recent downturn fresh in mind. Hence, finding more efficient ways to design, install and operate pipeline systems is seen to be increasingly important to stay ahead of the pack.
