Delegates at an N. Sea energy exhibition in Aberdeen tomorrow (9 Mar) will hear how government, operators and the supply chain have worked together to form an innovative technology partnership which has the potential to transform current efforts to tackle cost and improve efficiency.

Charles Tavner, Commercial Director, Magma Global, will speak on Magma’s partnership with BP, Subsea 7 and the National Composites Centre to qualify large diameter carbon fibre subsea pipe for deep water, high pressure applications.

He said: “This is an excellent example of how operators, the supply chain and government can collaborate to deliver technology for cost reduction.

“The programme combines an operator’s commitment to deploy with a focused funding model to rapidly deliver new technology. This is a large commitment underpinned by UK government support and illustrates an alternative, more focused model for technology development.”

The project was co-funded by Innovate UK, the UK government’s innovation agency.

The whole of UK’s oil and gas industry is under intense pressure in the current business environment of sustained low oil prices. The industry is working closely with both the Scottish and UK Governments and its regulator, the Oil & Gas Authority, to adapt.
