Technology Readiness Levels - not just a tool for oil & gas; by David Saul

12 May, 2020




With many of us in lock-down and unable to travel for training or attending external events, SUT are starting a series of short web-based training sessions focussed on key technologies and processes relevant to our members across the Society’s areas of interest.

The format is for a 20 to 30 minute training presentation followed by up to 30 minutes of QA & discussion. The sessions will be run using a live Zoom feed with a limit of 99 attendees, & they will not be recorded. Attendance is free for current SUT members (corporate and personal) together with anyone who has recently been made redundant from existing corporate members. To attend you need to register in advance by emailing [email protected]. Online CPD certificates will be provided for those requiring proof of attendance.

Training Session 1

Technology Readiness Levels, not just a tool for oil & gas. Tuesday 12th May 13:00 BST

This is the first in our series of free to members, web-based training sessions focussed around the reliability technology assurance tools most commonly associated with API 17N & 17Q standards. While these standards are written with subsea oil and gas in mind, many of the tools are as equally applicable to other areas of the Society’s work such as floating wind, & wider ocean science technologies such as marine autonomous systems and advanced sensors.

Technology Readiness levels (TRL) provide a quick and easy way to articulate how ‘proven’ a new technology is in a standardised way.

The training session will be presented by David Saul, honorary chair of the SUT. David has over 30 years’ experience working on subsea reliability and technology, he currently works for BP and additionally sits on the API 17N and Q sub-committees. To register (free to personal and corporate members) email [email protected] , attendance is limited to the first 99 to register, & the session will not be recorded. Non-members of SUT are welcome to register in return for a £20 donation to our Education Support Fund.
