ONS – Prepares for a Greener future

ContiTech Oil & Gas

September 2016
The ONS, held in Stavanger, Norway, 29th August – 1st September is Europe’s largest and most successful trade show in the oil and gas industry calendar. The exhibition is now in its 42nd year and exceeded all expectations. The high volume of participation demonstrated the optimism that is still present within the industry and the faith in future business prospects.

With representation being present from all product groups within the ContiTech Oil & Gas segment, at this year’s Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) exhibition, including representatives from Eddelbüttel + Schneider GmbH (E+S), ContiTech Rubber Industrial Kft. (CRI) and Dunlop Oil & Marine (DOM), we were able to successfully showcase our technology and expertise in the market to existing customers, as well as attracting future business opportunities. Detailed product information was available on High Pressure, hose and couplings, sea water intake systems, dredge, marine and hock hoses and hose management services.

During the exhibition Dunlop Oil & Marine introduced the Safline Hose Range, the most comprehensive range of Rubber hose for Dock and Ship to Shore Applications available in the market.

Sam Johnson, OEM and Key Account Manager – Europe, Dunlop Oil and Marine said “A number of meetings were held with potential customers during the course of the four days and although a little quieter than previous years, ONS 2016 showed an increase in the number of high caliber customers in comparison and proved very promising.

Also capturing the attention at the booth was magician Paul Grundle, who astounded the visitors with his tricks of the trade.

Since 1974 the global energy industry has gathered at ONS to network, share knowledge, do business and plan for the future and this year was no exception. With over 24 thousand square meters of exhibitor space the show attracted nearly 66,000 visitors and more than 1,200 exhibitors from 40 countries who were showcasing some of the most cutting edge technology in the industry.

The main theme at ONS this year was ‘Transition’ – how the Oil & Gas Industry can transition into a greener future. Over the course of the 4 days a number of conferences, seminars and networking on the show floor took place from companies and individuals who represent some of the very best of what the industry has to offer. Over 450 speakers took to the floor to debate and discuss their views on topics such as oil prices, duo providers and the future of the North Sea Sector.

After all, global demand for energy continues to rise unabated. Oil and gas will continue to play a pivotal role in the decades ahead, too. Experts expect the demand in 2040 to still be at the same level as today. In light of falling world market prices, though, the sector now has to adapt and increase efficiency in its production operations. There is a need for new technologies and approaches to ensure a brighter future.
