Subsea Forum 2019

The 2019 program explored matters specific to the subsea sector at this forum, covering subsea engineering solutions, life extension, the application of subsea geoscience and more, through a comprehensive program.

2019 partners included Society for Underwater Technology (SUT), Subsea Energy Australia (SEA) and Subsea UK, the Subsea Forum focusing on how the Australian Subsea industry can address key challenges, opportunities and the growing market.

The 2020 Subsea Forum agenda will be released in early 2020.
