  Upcoming SNAME Arctic Section Luncheon

Date: Wednesday, April 16, 2014
 
Presentation: Integrated Marine Approach for Preparation, Transport and Installation Operations in the Arctic

Speakers: Gerry Sarlis of Dockwise and Bastiaan Lammers of Boskalis Offshore Subsea Contracting

Description:  Offshore exploration in the arctic faces specific challenges, in a remote area with limited open ice season. Efficient execution with minimum mobilization of different vessels can be achieved by combination of technologies together with an integrated solution of transport and installation. These solution may include technical innovations with respect to load-out from fabrication site, transport to the field, launching, installation, ballasting, dredging, reclamation, preparation of pipeline corridors  and rock placement. Industry experience with such integrated solutions can serve as a stepping stone for new arctic developments. More information.

Location: Chevron Conference Center,
