Subsea Forum

The 2020 Subsea Forum program explores matters specific to the subsea sector, covering subsea engineering solutions, life extension, the application of subsea geoscience and more, through a comprehensive industry led program.

Supporters of the 2020 Subsea Forum include Society for Underwater Technology (SUT), Subsea Energy Australia (SEA) and Subsea UK.

“SPE Western Australia are pleased to be involved with AOG again in 2020, and look forward to expanding our partnership with the event through our facilitation of a full-day Knowledge Forum this year”.

Thanks to our sponsors & supporters, all conference sessions are completely free to attend.

See below for the outline of the 2020 agenda. A more detailed agenda with speakers will be released in late January.
