Marine Log magazineís Gulf Offshore 2001 conference focuses on those areas of offshore exploration and production that involve the design, operation, construction, and maintenance of floating plant - from deepwater rigs to OSVís and crewboats.
Clearly, offshore is going to play a crucial role in U.S. energy policy in the months and years ahead. This yearís conference will look at the policies and programs that are coming into place to help make this happen. It will also look at the key issue of finding financing for offshore projects.
Turning to hardware and capabilities, GULF OFFSHORE 2001 will look at such important areas as FPSOís and shuttle tankers, deepwater MODUís, deepwater moorings and anchor handling requirements and design innovations and operational experience with a broad range of OSVís.
