8th Offshore Support Vessels Summit

Date: 17th June 2015 - 18th June 2015 Location: Aberdeen - Scotland - UK

Essential Briefing for OSV Operational Efficiency, Design & Compliance

ACI’s 8th Offshore Support Vessels Summit provides an essential update for the OSV industry, specifically focusing on OSV operational excellence, efficiency and design. With oil & gas operations moving further offshore into harsher and more remote locations, OSVs must upkeep KPIs and profits – the best method of doing that is through efficiency and good design. We will also look at the oil & gas major perspectives, as well as the offshore legislation and regulatory compliance for design and operation of OSVs in key market regions, including West Africa, Asia, Americas, and North Sea. The agenda is entirely end-user focused and directed at OSV owners and associated service and equipment providers. Whether you are a leading OSV company or looking to enter the OSV market, this conference will be extremely beneficial to you.

The 8th OSV Summit will be co-located with our Operating Specialist Wind Vessels Summit. Benefit from the joint networking session and two streamed event of OSVs for oil & gas, as well as the specialist wind vessels sessions in the same venue.
