About the Conference

For years the global oil and gas industry has been following the norm of having a top side structure and simple infrastructure at subsea. Today the industry is continually developing to help companies successfully operate at a subsea level with advances aimed at driving down capital costs, optimising production and take advantage of opportunities in the deep water . With all this international focus on advancing subsea, it is important that the technology matches the ambition and opportunity available. The practice of working in a subsea environment is certainly not a new one. As long as there has been offshore structures, there has been a need to operate at a subsea level. Large players such as Norway, Brazil and the UK are continually placing a focus on deep water research and as a result of this strong growth is expected over the next few years. The UK alone holds 45% of the global market share, and if companies wish to maintain such a hold on the market, it is important to increase engagement between industry and academia to meet the increasingly complex and competitive technology advances, and drive R&D across the industry.

ASESS 2018 presents the perfect opportunity for you to do so, as it aims to provide an ideal platform for industry leading researchers, technology developers, industrial players and supply chain partners to converge. It also aims to promote the methodologies, exchange of ideas, procedures, and research in the area of subsea for Offshore Oil & Gas.

Conference Themes

The various themes are:

  • Deepwater umbilical’s and riser technology
  • The challenges of ultra-Deepwater pipeline installations
  • Practical application for subsea sensing equipment
  • The use of ROV’s and AUVs in deep-water operations
  • Advances In subsea pipeline technology
  • Maintenance and Decommissioning of subsea structures
  • Design methods and analysis tools/ techniques
  • Regulatory & design code framework
  • Fatigue design of subsea structures
  • Foundation design of subsea structures
  • Transportation and seafastening of subsea structures
  • Lifting and installation of subsea structures
  • Retrieval of subsea structures due to contingency
  • Subsea Separation,Boosting and Injection Technology
  • Subsea Storage Structures

The Programme will include invited papers whose aim will be to present the main issues relevant to the above themes and application areas, thus providing additional impetus for an open exchange of ideas.

Call For Papers

Abstracts of about 300 words on any of the above topics are invited by the 1st January 2018. Upon review by the Technical Advisory Panel, notification will be given by the 2nd February.
