UK/Norway Joint Technology Hackathon

Event Details

Aker Solutions, Building 1, Aberdeen International Business Park, Dyce Drive, Aberdeen, AB21 0BR
Wednesday 22nd November 2017

A joint NORWEP and ITF event supported by the UK Oil & Gas Authority and the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy

The North Sea is developing into a mature basin where tail end value creation has become a major challenge. The tail end production represents a huge challenge that will call for innovative solutions to enhance safety, minimise impact on the environment and create value for companies and governments. This event is a major North Sea effort to collectively come up with the best ideas in optimising late life field assets and field abandonment. 

The Hackathon is a single event over two locations which will feature presentations from the following operators; AkerBP, ConocoPhillips, Point Resources, Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited, Shell and Statoil. They will each share their current challenges in the area, followed by interactive group sessions to discuss solutions to the challenges. These discussions will form a report that will be shared with all attendees following the event, which will also act as an action plan to drive future activity.

In maximising the economic production from mature fields there is an enormous opportunity for both the supply chain and operators, if we can bring new cost saving technologies into play. On that issue there is an acceptance many of the solutions lie with the contractor community and these events will be a platform to highlight your innovative approach directly with influential operator project specialists

It is accepted companies may not wish to talk on a wholly open basis regarding their solutions so there will also be an opportunity to provide short written summaries which will be shared with OGA on a confidential basis. All other ideas generated at the event will be collated into a report which will be made freely available and will be used in developing an actionable forward plan.  Please note this is a technical event and not a business development opportunity.

The cost of attending the UK event is £50 inc VAT per person, if you are interested in attending, please complete the below registration form.  If accepted, you will be sent a separate email which will provide a link to our online payment page. 

The event agenda and operator challenge document will be updated regularly.
