Next steps for Carbon Capture and Storage in the UK
27 February 2014
This seminar will be a timely opportunity to assess the progress and way forward on the implementation of the Government's CCS strategy.
Following the selection of the two preferred bidders for the UK's CCS Commercialisation Competition, planned sessions look at the latest developments and next steps in designing, constructing and operating the technology.
Further discussion will move on to assess the wider supply chain, storage and infrastructure issues facing the successful deployment of CCS in the UK and the potential barriers to the development of a cost-competitive CCS industry post 2020 - with the publication of the CCS Cost Reduction Taskforce Final Report having identified opportunities for reducing costs across the entire CCS supply chain - in order to ensure that CCS technology becomes a major component of the UK's decarbonisation targets for 2050.
Sunsea UK member companies will present to undergraduate giving them information about the opportunities there are for them for employment in the subsea sector.

SPE Another Perspective on Risk Conference
5 March 2014
Aberdeen Exhibtion and Conference Centre
EXAMINING THE VARIOUS DIMENSIONS OF RISK GENERATED BY THE HUMAN FACTORS
The oil and gas industry generally states that there is no other “asset” more important or valuable than its people. However, some would argue that when it comes to people versus deliverables, priorities change.
The Another Perspective on Risk Conference, organised by SPE Aberdeen’s Another Perspective (AP) Committee, looks to examine the human factors that contribute to risks and accidents, but this time from a perspective never addressed before, that of the human risk.

Composites in the Offshore Oil and Gas Sector
5 March 2014
Oil & Gas UK Offices, Aberdeen
Composite materials have found a wide range of applications in the oil & gas industry for the last three decades. The most successful offshore application for composites has been in pipework, but other important applications include walkways, blast protection, firewater systems, j-tubes, caissons, riser protection, ladders and many more. Their use continues to grow as they offer a host of benefits over more traditional materials. In particular, they offer significant potential in terms of weight savings and corrosion resistance. Significant progress has also been made in structural applications leading to their potential use in primary structures. These features lead to tangible benefits that include reduced through-life costs, improved reliability and enhanced performance.
This one-day course has been designed to provide a broad overview of composite materials and their current uses in the oil & gas sector. It highlights some of the important advantages they offer compared to metallic materials and identifies the current barriers to increasing their use in offshore structures. In particular, the course will focus on a number of key applications including pipework, gratings and bonded composite repairs. At the end of the course, delegates will have a greater understanding of material properties, an informed view on current applications and an appreciation of the consequences of using composite materials.
HSL has significant experience of composite materials across the entire product lifecycle on behalf of both HSE and oil & gas companies. This includes failure analysis studies, verifying and substantiating component performance through experimental testing, impact performance characterisation and fire & blast survivability.
The course will include:
Design and manufacture
Who should attend?
Structural Engineers, Safety Engineers, Materials/Metallurgy TAs or other personnel who need a more comprehensive overview of composite materials and how they can be used in offshore oil & gas applications.
