27 Technical Sessions
Based on the applications ONS received for the 16 announced Challenges, the Technical Committee have put together a total of 27 sessions directly related to the offshore industry on NCS and in the North Sea region.
The programme will consist of more than 170 presentations, and addresses topics like the development of fields, low-emission technologies and new technology trends that the industry can make use of. “Digitalisation” will be the common denominator throughout the 27 sessions.
22 of the sessions are directly focused on new technologies in the petroleum sector.
In addition to looking at solutions for the oil and gas industry, there will be five sessions on new business opportunities for the offshore service and supply industry in aquaculture and civil infrastructure. These latter sessions are put together by dedicated workgroups, with special competence on the crossover between the offshore and the targeted industries.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate’s price for increased oil recovery – the IOR award 2018 will be awarded during the event.
318 proposals for Technical Sessions
With growing energy demands and rising costs, the oil and gas sector needs new technological solutions for greenfield developments, cutting emissions, extending life of current installations, and improve uptime and efficiency.
The ONS Technical Committee – a selection of the energy industry’s best and brightest – have used their aggregated centuries of experience to identify 16 cost inflating bottlenecks and unsolved challenges through the entire value chain in the North Sea region.
318 companies from all over the world have submitted proposals that address complex challenges and how these can be solved with new and possibly groundbreaking solutions.
-Much of what is going to happen on the Norwegian Continental Shelf will require new or improved technologies. The high number of submitted proposals confirms that these companies see opportunities in the industry, says project manager for ONS Technical Sessions, Bjørn Tore Bjørsvik.
The ONS Technical Sessions is a three day event designed for engineers, developers, project managers and purchasers. Delegates to these sessions will learn about the challenges, how far the industry has come in solving them, thus enabling them to see if and where their own product or idea fits in – and meet the key market players at the same arena.
