Offshore Preparedness Conference 2017


The Offshore Preparedness Conference is a forum for Norwegian and international collaboration and experience exchange linked to emergency preparedness issues both on- and offshore. This will be the eighth OIPC, and will be held in Bodø from 30 May to 1 June.

(30) 31 May - 1 June

Scandic Hotel Havet, Bodø

Focus on emergency preparedness


The industry is operating increasingly in areas at great distances offshore, with logistical challenges linked to low temperatures and poor daylight conditions. Is the industry sufficiently equipped to carry out its activities safely and sustainably in relation to life, health, and the environment?

Collaboration in the Arctic


Industry operations are being carried out at ever greater distances from land in areas with limited logistical and communication infrastructure, and under harsh weather conditions. How is the industry addressing these challenges?

Oil spill protection in Arctic waters


The industry is focusing intensely on emergency preparedness, rescue and oil spill protection strategies. How is the industry planning and implementing its strategies to combat incidents that may arise in Arctic waters?
