Tuesday 27 October

  • 09:30 – 18:00
    Exhibition
    At the exhibition floor you can meet our exhibitors, get in touch with latest innovations at the experience and start-up zone, learn more from in depth talks on the open stages, participate in matchmaking and have a break or one on one meetings in the premium lounge.
  • 10:00 – 11:30
    Conference Session
    A high-level outlook up to 2050. Climate agreements, environmental impact and government views all have their impact on the offshore energy industry. This is but one side of the equation. The daily business and vision on the necessary innovations to survive are an incumbent part of the other side of the equation. Listen to the views from industry experts.
  • 12:00 – 13:30
    Conference Session
    There are increasing demands on North Sea resources as well as increasing pressure on the use of maritime space. As a result the North Sea is a valuable asset deserving our special attention. Challenges may arise from tensions between maritime activities demanding marine space. However, combining compatible activities such as more renewables in the same marine space can serve to share and reduce costs, in addition to generating further synergies between activities. Join this session to find out how the New North Sea is taking shape and how this will enhance the energy transition goals set by the surrounding countries.
  • 14:00 – 15:30
    Conference Session
    The various cycles which affect our oil industry have emphasised the need for detailed control of expenditure for development and production of marginal fields. Marginal fields are small reserves, which until now have proved to be not economically viable. This could be due to the lack of infrastructure or to technological difficulties. If this can be changed, these fields may become commercially interesting. Hear more from experts on the innovations than can turn these challenges into fruition.
  • 16:00 – 17:30
    Conference Session
    Safety is the key word offshore. Not only in regards to general HSQE, but also the psychological impact of working in a demanding environment. Next to that, communication plays an invaluable role in maintaining a safe working space. What are the psychological effects of working in the offshore energy industry? Hear from speakers on their views, safety measures and communication advice.

    CO2, H2 and electricity. If we want to make the transition from oil & gas to renewable energies, storage of that energy is one of the key challenges we face. Time to examine the advantages and benefits that integrated systems can bring to the further acceleration of the transition and the parties involved.
  • 12:00 – 13:30
    Conference session
    What is the next big thing after offshore wind? Which mind-blowing innovation will take the offshore energy by storm and what is necessary to achieve this?
  • 14:00 – 15:30
    Conferense session
    Sustainability powers innovation within the maritime field. Scrubbers, ballast water treatment systems, ecofriendly antifouling and all kinds of efficiency methods will allow companies active in the maritime industry to reach their climate goals. No industry is more connected to offshore energy than the maritime industry. As such, the maritime industry is invaluable in realising the energy transition. Hear more from maritime players leading the way in sustainable solutions.
  • 16:00 – 17:30
    Conference session
    Huge steps are still being taken regarding the technology within offshore wind. The growing demand for this industry is very much apparent, both in fixed-bottom as well as floating platforms. What are the possible opportunities? What are the latest trends? Which developments are drivers to enable this industry to shape the energy transition? Find out from our wind experts during this session.

Thursday 29 October

  • Company visit
    The Netherlands offers great experience in the field of offshore oil & gas, wind and marine energy. To highlight the expertise and potential of offshore energy in the Netherlands, Offshore Energy, the Dutch Government and the trade organizations NWEA, IRO, NMT and HHWE organize a programme for incoming trade missions. This includes company visits which will be held on Thursday 29 October and will be organized to different locations in the Netherlands. This programme is organized in collaboration with accessible for both governmental and business delegations. Focused on themes, innovative and leading Dutch companies will open their doors for you.
