The OSV Asia-Pacific conference will be held during Singapore Maritime Week and is the ONLY conference in Asia that focuses on design and commercial trends for OSVs.
In 2008, we witnessed the sharpest spikes and drops in oil prices in history. Now with a global recession looming, exploration spending is being curbed but the demand for Offshore Support Vessels (OSVs) remains high.
With more deepwater projects in the region, these vital exploration vessels must perform a range of functions quickly and effectively. Experts will review orders for newbuilds and forecast supply and demand scenarios and charter rates for various OSVs.
Sessions on AHTS, PSV, seismic and crewing vessels will discuss engineering and operational aspects. Presentations from ship owners and operators, exploration managers, shipyards, naval architecture firms and classification groups will give delegates a holistic view of building and operating these workhorses of the sea.
