IN A first for the sector, industry bodies Subsea UK and the Umbilical Manufacturers Federation (UMF) have joined forces to deliver a conference focussing on the new developments and opportunities which exist in the subsea umbilicals industry.

The global subsea umbilicals, risers and flowline market is forecast to be worth more than £5billion by 2021 and the half-day conference, which will take place on Thursday, 21 November at the Chester Hotel in Aberdeen, will focus on the opportunities which exist in the growing sector. Ahead of the conference, a networking reception will take place at the hotel the night before (Wednesday 20 November). 

A number of experts, including representatives from oil and gas super-majors and service companies will explore a range of topics relating to subsea umbilicals including project achievements to date, life extension and safety. Shell, Equinor, Subsea 7, Aker Solutions, Oceaneering, JDR Cable Systems, Fibron, Nexans, MAATS Tech and Trelleborg will all deliver presentations at the event.

Neil Gordon, chief executive at Subsea UK, said: “The subsea umbilical market has seen a massive growth in recent years, and it is predicted to expand and be part of a multi-billion-pound market. We have developed this conference in direct response to the number of opportunities which exist in subsea umbilicals and created a programme which showcases the latest technical advances and knowledge which exists in the sector.”

The Subsea UK and UMF conference will take place on Thursday, 21 November at the Chester Hotel, Aberdeen from 9am – 7:30pm. A drinks reception is happening the evening before from 6.30pm at the hotel.
