SUT’s ‘Energy In Transition and the Impacts for Site Investigation and Characterisation’ Newcastle Seminar

The Offshore Site Investigation and Geotechnics (OSIG) committee of the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) will hold its first ‘in-person’ seminar in almost 18 months in mid-September.

The full-day event will address ‘Energy in Transition and its Impact on Offshore Site Investigations’, followed by a drinks reception and dinner; all being held at St. James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, the home of Newcastle United FC.

The seminar, on Thursday 16 September, will comprise some 20 presentations including conventional and floating offshore wind, decommissioning and carbon capture and storage (CCS) from a wide variety of speakers from industry, academia and government. Companies/organisations presenting include Oil & Gas UK, MMO, MarineSpace, BP, RPS, Partrac, TotalEnergies, NGI, Cathie, Geowynd, SSE, DnV, Blue Gem Wind and Ørsted.

Karen Dalton (RPS), chair of the organising committee, said:

This is an excellent opportunity for anyone planning, operating and executing offshore activities, to meet in-person to hear and be part of the discussion around issues facing the industry as the global energy transition progresses.
