Sub Sea Expo 2015
The UK Sub Sea Market is worth almost £9 billion and its resilience to the drop in oil and gas prices was demonstrated by the attendance figures at Sub Sea Expo 2015 held in Aberdeen. Attendance figures were up by over 20% on the previous year and there were over 8500 visits.
It was evident from visitors to the stand that a greater emphasis is being placed on innovation and technology with the intention on driving down inefficiencies in the industry in response to the decline in oil prices.
Datalink director Dr Jim Allen, with his vast experience in the design and manufacture of ATEX / IECEx certified equipment, was on hand to offer advice and guidance on developing a product from concept to delivering a commercial system, fully compliant fit-for-market. It was rewarding to recognise that companies were intent in investing in technologies to take advantage when the oil price eventually recovers.
