Offshore Marine Asia
Mr Yudhishthir Khatau, President, BIMCO, officiated the opening of the first Satrade Offshore Marine Asia (SOMA) 2012 on 25th April 2012. The event, featuring both a conference and exhibition, brought together some 2,300 participants for 3 days of intense networking, discussion and deliberation over issues facing the offshore marine sector, particularly in Asia.
SOMA 2012 is now over, but thank you to everyone who attended.
"Asia continues to be a driving force in offshore oil and gas - be it through demand, construction of vessels, finance or production. The region will, to a large degree, probably determine the future direction of the sector."
Per M. Ristvedt, Managing Partner - Wikborg Rein Singapore
“Offshore craft supporting the oil and gas sector in general will continue to see an increase in employment as energy needs in the region grow. Crew retention and competency will be just one of a number of challenges facing the OSV’s industry."
