Subsea Engineering plays a vital role in offshore oil & gas exploration, drilling and production. It is one of the most difficult and complicated aspects of the offshore oil & gas industry. Particularly the deepwater operations with high temperature, high pressure and corrosion present the unique challenges for the offshore Risers, umbilicals and subsea structures.

The Subsea Engineering Session provides a forum for presentation and discussion on all subsea engineering related theory, methods, experiments, and technology application in the Risers, Flowlines, Umbilicals, Offshore Wind Power Cables, Pipeline End Manifolds (PLEMs)s, Clamps, End Connectors, Bend Restrictors, Oil Well Rigs, Wellheads, Separators, Underwater Vehicles, and other subsea structures. The topics can be any of the following areas:

1) Mechanics & Structure Design;
2) Feasibility & New Conceptual Design;
3) Front End Engineering Design (FEED);
4) Construction, Installation & Operation;
5) Fracture & Fatigue;
6) Materials & Corrosion;
7) FEA, CFD & Advanced Modelling & Simulation;
8) Fluid-structure Interaction, Vortex Induced Vibration of Pipe Spans;
9) Flow Assurance, Slugging on Pipeline Structural Response;
10) FLNG Storage & Transportation;
11) Global Dynamic Response due to FPSO and Environment Loads;
12) Condition Monitoring & Integrity Management;
13) On-bottom behaviour & pipe-soil interaction;
14) Vertical, Lateral and Upheaval Buckling of Subsea Pipelines;
15) Safety, Risk Assessment & Reliability;
16) Test and Repair, Inspection & Maintenance;
17) Subsea Components & System Controls and Hydraulic Design;
18) Iceberg-soil Scour Modelling & Pipeline Impact for Artic Conditions
19) ROV Underwater Mining;
20) Underwater Surveying and Positioning;
21) Design Verification and Technical Audits.

The Subsea Engineering Session focuses on promoting the technology innovation and collaboration between industry and academia on theory, methods, experiments and practical application.
