AMOG will be presenting at the Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference later this month. Supporting the conference theme: Maximising Value through Collaboration, AMOG's Andrew Kilner (Senior Vice President of AMOG Consulting Inc) will be presenting a technical paper on "Strategies for Managing Ageing Offshore Platforms."

It will look at the challenges that come with ageing infrastructure including safety, efficiency, and cost, whilst exploring the typical deterioration and damage mechanisms that are seen on ageing platforms - particularly those exposed to extreme events and corrosion. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) will be explored in relation to platform structural assessment, life extension and risk based inspection, as well as damage assessments (incorporating fatigue life). AMOG's expertise in corrosion research will also be presented when exploring areas such as assigning corrosion rankings and determining corrosion rates, as well as remediation options.


This presentation will be delivered in the following session:

Day 2, 23 January 2018

Session: Safety and Asset Integrity

2pm - 3pm 


About the Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference

The Energy Chamber of Trinidad and Tobago will host its Annual Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference from January 22nd – 24th, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency, Port-of-Spain. The Trinidad and Tobago Energy Conference is the premier Energy Conference in the Caribbean and promotes vigorous debate and discussion among leaders of industry, Government and academia. Approximately 1400 visitors were in attendance over the three days of the 2017 Energy Conference – roughly three to four times more than other annual energy conferences held in the country. Delegates from the US, the United Kingdom, Barbados, Guyana, Suriname, Venezuela, China and the Falklands Island and the Dominican Republic, were participants. The conference attracts senior decision makers in the industry including the CEOs, supply chain, finance, and operations managers of the major upstream, midstream, and downstream operator companies in Trinidad and Tobago.

This year, the conference is expected to be an even greater success as our 2017 post-conference survey indicates that 95 percent of delegates will return and 100 percent will recommend the conference to others.

What is clear is that the energy sector will continue to fuel the country’s growth and prosperity over the next few decades and mapping out a way to ensure sustained development amidst an ever changing global environment is pivotal. The sector is at a crucial juncture where it must evolve in order to continue being competitive.n green economy policy development.
