Offshore WIND Conference

Offshore Wind Conference - day 1 (OWC)

The 8th annual Offshore WIND Conference (OWC) on 9 and 10 October 2017, part of Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference, will focus on the opportunities for the offshore wind sector over the next ten years and beyond. What will upcoming tenders offer the supply chain (short term)? What are the trends and opportunities after 2023? While also tackling subtopics such as cost reduction, innovations, subsidy and cooperation with the oil and gas industries.

€495 (two day ticket)

12.00 Welcoming lunch 

13.00 Opening: Can electricity market cannibalisation be cured?
A renewable generation is on the rise. Market demand is met as the wind will always continue to blow. Yet, with market prices falling is the offshore wind industry set to get caught in cannibalising its own investment? A kick-off to show the bigger picture within the industry.
 
The road up to 2023
How can the industry prepare for the long-term? Which steps will need to be taken to ensure future demand, regulations and energy agreements? This session will also focus on human capital issues.
 
15.00 Refreshment break
 
15.30 Trial and triumph in bidding systems
Tenders and bidding are hot topics in the industry. The Netherlands have presented a solid case and many countries stand to follow suit. Where lie the challenges? Can cost reduction be met by taking important technological steps. What works in other countries? Questions to be
answered in an interesting panel discussion.
 
Upcoming talent
A well-functioning industry requires not only experienced personnel, but also new, young blood – full of challenging ideas and innovations. Four short presentations will be held by students.

Dredging Today Conference

Dredging Today Conference - day 1 (DTC)

The world in which the dredging industry operates, is changing. Climate change, global trade developments and shifts in the world's energy mix are but a few factors with significant impact. But where will the effects of climate change be felt most? And what public funds are available to pay for solutions that can protect vulnerable regions?
We are also witnessing changes in client demands and with these in the role of dredging contractors. What business strategies do we see emerging and ultimately – what makes the dredging industry future proof?

Delegates attending the 1st Dredging Today Conference can expect a forward-looking agenda with attention for business rather than technology. We are currently inviting conference
speakers.

Technical session

Global business opportunities - breakfast session

Despite lower oil and gas prices, the business case for E&P activities remains strong. Oil and gas are projected to account for more than 75% of total energy supply in 2035, albeit with shifts in energy demand and supply centers. This session will look at where future demand will come from but will especially address hot spots for production growth and related opportunities for the supply chain. Hot spots include Iran, Myanmar, Mexico and Brazil.

2 nations, 1 basin - same challenges

Optimizing value from the Southern North Sea

With an aging gas basin, the rejuvenation of energy production activities in the SNS is crucial for future energy security and Maximising Economic Recovery (MER). The key to big-wins in this field is the sharing of information and ideas, collaboration and the sharing of best practices. The East of England Energy Group (EEEGR), in association with the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), Oil & Gas UK and Decom North Sea are working with operators and key stakeholders in the Southern North Sea (SNS) region.

How can we access tight gas reserves; and what techniques and infrastructure are required? Can we share resources between operators to lower the cost of operations and future exploration? Is there a way of sharing resources, offshore training and currency between oil & gas and the offshore wind sector? Can the UK and the Netherlands learn from the way their operations are run where these two nations share the same basin?

This 2,5 hour program aims to highlight how EEEGR's SNS Rejuvenation Special Interest Group are going about tackling these issues. The program includes interactive discussion on UK-NL collaboration and an "ON AIR" talk-show from 12.30 to 13.00 hrs which will be livestreamed on OffshoreEnergyToday.com.

Asset Integrity - lunch session

The EU Offshore Safety Directive has been incorporated in national legislations in EU member states. To ensure asset integrity, The Netherlands has established Industry Standard No. 90. The combined facts of ageing infrastructure on one hand and a focus on cost savings on the other make adequate and cost efficient asset integrity management a key concern. This session, organized in cooperation with NOGEPA, will look at the implementation of new industry standards, including Standard 48 on Independent Verification Management and Standard 49 on Safety and Environmental Critical Elements (SECE) Verification.

Launch of the National Platform for Re-use and Decommissioning

MAKING THE NEXT STEP TO OPTIMISE FOR THE FUTURE

The Dutch oil and gas sector is facing a challenge as over the coming decades, many of the oil and gas facilities/infrastructure reach the end of their economic life. This offers opportunities for the energy transition, because infrastructure may be re-used for renewable energy sources. Where this is not possible, the industry will dismantle the facilities striving for zero safety incidents and minimal environmental impact. In order to properly identify this task and investigate possibilities for re-use, EBN and NOGEPA, together with the Ministry of Economic Affairs, have joined forces in the set-up of a National Platform for Re-use & Decommissioning The Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2017 offers the perfect opportunity to officially launch this platform amongst a large variety of national and international stakeholders from inside and outside the industry.

Smart maintenance solutions for offshore installation - breakfast session

As information technology evolves and automation increases, more and more companies are coming up with innovative solutions for the upkeep of offshore structures and vessels. The increasing availability of data about the performance of structures and ships allows smarter maintenance which can save millions, while for example the usage of drones could make a surveyor’s life easier. In this session, organized in cooperation with Netherlands Maritime Technology, early adopters in the maritime and offshore industry show the advantages of using information technology and automation.

Capitalizing on decarbonization

Capitalizing on decarbonization

Meeting the Paris climate targets requires billions in investments. But the need to decarbonize our economy can also lead to commercial opportunities. Almost two years after the Paris climate agreement we're taking stock of international and national targets – on CO2 emission reductions, the share of renewable energy and energy efficiency – and especially where we are in meeting those targets. Organized in close cooperation with the "Transitie Coalitie" consisting of 65 companies based in the Netherlands, Community Square will share successful experiences in capitalizing on decarbonization.

This 2,5 hour program organized with other members of the Transitie Coalitie, will consist of welcoming pitches, interactive discussion on commercially successful decarbonization strategies and on "ON AIR" talk-show from 16.00 to 16.30 hrs which will be livestreamed on OffshoreEnergyToday.com.
