I would like to welcome you to the 2017 Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas. As we have come to adjust
to a lower price environment, we are now seeing the industry starting to innovate in order to be competitive.
Penn Well has been enabling this premier subsea event since 2001 that brings together industry leaders to engage, network,
learn and share current and relevant knowledge about the latest happenings in this dynamic industry segment. This collective
brain trust includes broad representation from E&P operators (major, independent and national oil companies), contractors,
and suppliers; and technologists, engineers and managers of all levels of authority and experience.
The conference sessions, exhibition hall, learning and networking events provide ample opportunity for engagement and
dialogue. Penn Well’s winning formula for this event is ultimately made possible by the volunteer efforts of the Advisory Board,
by the gracious support and participation of the host, sponsors, and exhibitors, and of course by enthusiastic delegates such
This year’s theme is highly appropriate: “Meeting the Challenges.” The opening presentations from BP will set the scene
with an international operator’s perspective. In the technical sessions, BSEE will address the key area of life of feld
extension, something that many operators are currently focused on. Thought leaders will discuss the application of emerging
technologies that enable long-distance tiebacks; advancing standardization in order to be competitive; lessons learned from
operations; and fow assurance solutions which drew a great deal of interest at the 2016 forum.
These presenters will offer an invaluable source of insight into these cutting edge technologies, through the presentations
themselves, and through further discussion in question and answer sessions and ad-hoc networking.
I would like to thank the Advisory Board for once again building a frst-class forum, but also to thank the attendees again
for making Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition the success that it is through your support and participation. I trust that this
year’s program will offer relevant and useful information and industry connections that can generate real value for you and
