SMI Deepwater Technology Workshop
The Singapore Maritime Institute (SMI) will be co-organising a Deepwater Technology Workshop with the Centre for Offshore Research and Engineering (CORE) at NUS on 3rd April 2012 and we are pleased to invite to you to participate in this workshop.
The SMI intends to provide the industry a better understanding of the latest R&D developments at the Institute of Higher Learning (IHLs) and A*STAR Research Institutes (RIs) as well as to better align the R&D focus of the academia with industry needs and identify collaboration opportunities.
Through this workshop, we aim to highlight common research challenges in deepwater technology and also to prioritize R&D focus areas. SMI plans to subsequently launch a thematic R&D grant call in Deepwater Technology to support R&D collaborative projects between the academia and the industry.
The workshop will focus on the technological challenges of deepwater E&P, with emphasis on the following key areas:
(a) Deepwater structural systems (e.g. structural integrity management, hydrodynamics, wave-structure interaction, foundation systems, and moorings and risers)
(b) Subsea and pipeline technology (including AUV/ROV for subsea inspection and intervention)
Invitation to the industry spans across various clusters such as shipyards, subsea equipment manufacturers, oilfield service companies, engineering consultants, as well as the classification societies. Apart from industry representatives, SMI is also inviting researchers from the local IHLs and A*STAR RIs to attend so as to tap on the existing research capabilities residing within the schools and research centres.
