ADIPEC recognises that an extensive range of commercial diving equipment supports the offshore and marine sector. The supply and manufacture of goods and services including diving equipment, specialised subsea equipment, subsea pipeline maintenance, inspection and underwater welding all support the operations of ships and vessels operating in the oil and gas industry. Offshore projects are increasing in the region, ADNOC Offshore operates the Upper Zakum, Lower Zakum and Umm Shaif fields in the UAE, they produce 1.4 million b/d collectively.
ADIPEC covers the full oil and gas supply chain, with 38 IOCs and NOCs participating. In 2017, $10.34 billion worth of business deals were concluded and the exhibition offers unparalleled networking opportunities. A specialist zone for the world’s subsea and offshore solution providers within Offshore & Marine will enable exhibitors to reach the right people to transform their business and boost their profitability.
The range of operations to support offshore drilling or production platform support is substantial. Pipeline work, including pipe lay barges, pipeline stabilisation and inspection are all important to extending the life and efficiency of operations. Offshore projects in UAE waters come with its own set of challenges due to the heat, huge amounts of underwater repair and inspection is required. As ADNOC Offshore have recently partnered with ExxonMobil and Inpex to boost production of the Zakum oil field by 2024, offshore activities will increase as will the need for companies with international experience.
Exhibiting companies who support the underwater operations of the global Offshore & Marine sectors will liaise with the industry’s most influential stakeholders in a dedicated zone highlighting their expertise.
