Topsides UK 2021

Maintaining Effective, Safe, and Efficient Operations with Limited Resources

Programme Now Available – Download Here.

Topsides UK continues to bring together industry bodies, operators, supply chain and contractors to share knowledge, pain points, solutions, and innovations for the benefit of the wider industry.

With the current restrictions to personnel on board (POB), and associated challenges that this brings to production and efficiency targets which have remained the same, the industry has continued to find new and innovative ways of maintaining operations.

Working practices may have changed forever because of Covid-19, and this year’s conference programme will bring together technical experts from both within and out with the industry to share case studies and lessons learned from the past 12 months. The supply chain will give us an insight into the products and services they have been developing to support the new industry norms and showcase solutions to real problems.
