SPE Brazil and Macae section are pleased to invite the subsea community to the first edition of SPE Rio Subsea Symposium, taking place on 18th & 19th of June 2019 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The SPE Rio Subsea Symposium is an event in a format aiming to stimulate interaction among participants, revise critical topics and propose solutions to the subsea community matters.
Brazil has been showing its leadership in subsea development through its unique combination of factors such as track record of successful deep-water fields, high interest on recent oil rounds, giant oil fields, R&D levy, already-established research centers, presence of major oil companies and key suppliers. The adoption of “Subsea 4.0” - a new business & technical mindset based in the introduction of digitalization, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and collaboration in the subsea industry - has potential to make Brazil a reference in technical and manufacturing aspects of the subsea industry in the world.
Joint industry initiatives (operators, partners, regulators and suppliers) are key to address the issues and coordinate actions to increase competitiveness and sustainability of the subsea sector. In this workshop key specialists and decision makers will have the opportunity to explore, debate and suggest proposals to strength the local subsea industry, discussing how research, development & innovation, technologies and digital transformation (BIG DATA, IoT, AR, sensors and Digital Twins) may reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TOC), and how industry could be more effective and efficient to convert R&D levies in the mechanism to create true differentiation.
