The issue for operators and service providers alike when it comes to optimizing both costs and procedures for subsea well operations is doing so within the boundaries of regulatory requirements. The challenge is ensuring that new techniques and technologies are aligned and assessed within those requirements and ensure that regulators and end users are in agreement with the methods and applications. This session will provide input from direct experts involved with regulatory framework application in the form of BSEE as well as third party SME’s covering risk, commercial impact and methods of alignment across regulators and industry parties. Understanding the engagement methods as covered in this session is key to successful application of operations.
