On November 23, 2016, Noia will deliver its annual Fall Seminar at the Delta St. John's Hotel. This year’s focus is Deepwater Technology & Near-Term Opportunities.

With the most recent major resource finds being in deeper waters, deepwater technology is an extremely timely topic. Fall Seminar delegates will hear international energy industry consultants Gaffney, Cline & Associates deliver the results of three deepwater technology studies: Understanding Processes and Methodologies for Deep Water Oil & Gas Projects; Understanding Global Approaches and Trends Related to Engineering and Fabrication for Deep Water Oil & Gas Projects; and Understanding Logistical and Operational Support for Oil & Gas Projects in Deep Water. 

Additional presentations and discussions will cover the importance of maximizing the near-term opportunities still available in the shallower water of the Jeanne d’Arc Basin.
