2016 will be a year to remember for all of us working in the oil & gas industry and it will be talked about in decades to come, such as we are discussing the impact of the downturns we have been through before.  However, now is the time to focus on how to become more competitive and be the field development solution of choice going forward.

The UTC Program Committee challenges all of us to share thoughts, ideas, experiences and opinions on how we can become more cost efficient, more effective, more flexible and more innovative – i.e. how to become Lean and be the key value driver going forward.

UTC 2016 will be the 22nd Underwater Technology Conference in Bergen, and 900 professionals and 60 exhibitors are expected to attend the conference. The most important criteria for the future success of UTC is to keep the high level of the delegates attending the conference.

A relevant and applicable technical program, as well as arenas for networking and discussions, has a high focus when planning for the event. The program committee consists of Norwegian and International professionals, from both operators and suppliers, ensuring a conference program of high standards.
