Chevron, ExxonMobil and API RP 17N Committee join major Subsea Integrity Talks

With the Subsea Industry set to double its annual size from $30bn to $60bn in the next 5 years, the industry requires a robust & systematic subsea integrity management strategy. Developments within the subsea arena are moving rapidly: the SURF market will double to $30-$40bn, annually in the next 5 years, whilst Inspection & Maintenance is projected to double to $10bn. The benefits of a fully informed Subsea Integrity Management strategy are clear. By identifying, documenting and analysing prioritized subsea asset data across the lifecycle, it minimizes early life failures and costly intervention, whilst eradicating the possibility for loss of containment. This in turn allows operators to maximize production performance and reach such goals in the most timely and cost effective way.

As the subsea industry takes giant leaps forward into High Pressure High Temperature environments, deeper waters, and subsea processing, the ability to effectively demonstrate and manage integrity becomes an ever more challenging and valuable prospect.

To capitalize on this evolving subsea landscape, key industry stakeholders will be gathering for the Subsea Integrity Management Summit on 9-10 September in Houston. With confirmed speakers from Chevron, ExxonMobil, BP, Subsea 7, Baker Hughes, FMC Technologies, WGIM, this forum will provide the industry with the best tools and strategies to minimize subsea threats and deliver maximum subsea integrity.
