Description: It is estimated that the Arctic contains more than one third of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas. Although some development has already occurred, the region remains one of the last energy frontiers. But the region is also one of the most difficult areas in the world to work, due to its remoteness, the extreme cold, dangerous sea ice, and its fragile environment.
A key challenge will be developing and deploying solutions, which are currently at the cutting edge of technology. Transportation of gas and oil from such remote parts of the globe are also a huge challenge to the energy industry with high technology demands on structures, vessels and pipelines.
The Polar and Arctic Sciences and Technology Symposium promotes the understanding of the cold regions of the earth through environmentally compatible design and construction, safe operation, maintenance, and integrity of both offshore and onshore structures in these fragile regions. Going towards the Arctic is one of the most challenging and fascinating topic for engineers, researchers and environmentalists of various disciplines. Not alone, but only together we can make this happen.
