NSRI – the National Subsea Research Initiative – is hosting an event later this month to showcase the facilities that are currently on offer to support the subsea developer sector with testing.
The workshop will welcome six industry experts from a number of organisations including the National Physical Laboratory, the Underwater Centre and Exova Group to provide an insight into how their facilities can help to address the immediate and future testing requirements sector as the industry strives to introduce novel products into the oil and gas industry.
NSRI is the focal point for subsea research and development, bringing together industry, developers and academia to collaborate effectively to fast-track the introduction of new technology which will unlock the challenges facing North Sea fields and help the UK maintain its global position.
NSRI explores where the industry is heading in terms of subsea infrastructure and identifies the technologies needed to help it get there, supporting field development and expansion in both deep and shallow waters.
Dr. Gordon Drummond, Project Director, NSRI said: “We hope this event will help to identify the most relevant contacts and collaborations needed to ensure the industry is utilising the country’s subsea testing and development facilities to its full potential.”
The showcase is being held at an Aberdeen hotel on 17 May.
