This event has passed. Please stay tuned for information on the 2015 OSV summit. 

Business is booming in the deepwater U.S. Gulf, with several more rigs on order and scheduled to enter the market by the end of 2014. Offshore service vessel operators need to stay abreast of market conditions and trends.  

Future of LNG Shipments
Listen to a conversation about the future of the offshore service vessel industry and you will hear the term LNG mentioned often.  Even though it appears to be the next breakthrough in the field, there are still a lot of questions surrounding its implementation.  Issues like where will the supply come from, will there be adequate access, is there adequate infrastructure to support LNG, and what are the obstacles hindering progress.

What’s in Store for the OSV Market
The fortunes of supply vessel operators rise and fall in lock step with offshore contract drilling companies. Drillers are dependent upon the E&P activity of oil and gas companies, who are primarily dependent upon oil and gas prices. However, events other than market influences can sometimes determine whether a particular offshore region will enjoy significant drilling and production activity. It can be a vicious cycle.  Join in the discussion as our expert presenters offer insight on the future of the rig market.

Design Trends
With competition for business in the offshore service industry at an all-time high, it is no surprise that OSV operators want every advantage they can have when it comes to streamlining their operations.  One area that can where significant impact can be made is in the design and build of the vessel. Over a period of three decades the utilization, design and construction of osv's has undergone numerous changes.  Hear from top design firms and builders on what new technologies and materials will mean for future builds.
