The biennial SPE Offshore Europe conference will explore a diverse set of topics, including the application of digital technologies and preparing for a low-carbon energy future and ongoing work around standardization and decommissioning. Acquiring data from an abandoned subsea well has been done before, but never quite like this.

Statoil has submitted a long-awaited development plan for what will become Norway’s northernmost development.
