The roadshow will allow you to share ideas, create peer groups and accelerate the uptake of new technologies in four challenge areas:

  • Asset integrity – managing the effects of ageing assets and equipment. Topics include robotics for inspection in hazardous environments, coating and insulation to eliminate corrosion, and condition monitoring of subsea infrastructure.
  • Small pools – technologies to enable the commercial development of stranded assets. Topics include innovative tie-backs, mechanical connectors for hot taps, and plug-and-play infrastructures that can be redeployed to new fields.
  • Well construction – transforming the way wells are drilled and completed, and decommissioned, targeting a 50 per cent cost reduction. Topics include large component forging, composites for downhole applications, and automation of the drill floor.
  • Decommissioningover the next decade, some 100 platforms are forecast for complete or partial removal. On the UK continental shelf, £17.6 billion is forecast to be spent on decommissioning between 2016 and 2025.

The event includes case studies, an introduction to funding opportunities, industry presentations and discussions, and a tour of the Nuclear AMRC workshop.
