Marine and Hydrokinetic Energy: Establishing an Industry Standard
The development of marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) energy projects globally is working to demonstrate the practicability of MHK in global energy portfolios. As such, there is an urgent industry need to develop adequate economic models for deployment, establish design standards, and reduce costs and time associated with deployments. This OTC Live session engages industry, regulatory, and research experts in the field to have an open discussion on pathways to a successful MHK energy industry in supporting the Blue Economy.
Moderator: Craig Jones, Principal, Integral Consulting, Inc.
Speaker: Reenst Lesemann, CEO, C-Power; Jonathan Colby, Director of Technology Performance, Verdant Power; Jennifer Garson, Acting Director of Water Power Technologies, DOE
GEMINI® ROV System
This session introduces TechnipFMC’s GEMINI® Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) system. Deepwater rigs and drillships have a total cost of ownership of up to $1 million per day, requiring a focus on all aspects of operational productivity to ensure optimal economics. These rig operations require the support of ROVs to perform subsea intervention tasks throughout the entire drilling and completion process. During the session you will learn how advancements in machine vision, automation and precision robotics enable the GEMINI® ROV to reduce rig time, through increased operational productivity and consistently high performance that is quantified with KPIs.
Moderator: Bernard McCoy Jr., VP Global Service Line - Subsea Wells, TechnipFMC
Speaker: Peter MacInnes, Marketing Director - ROV Services, TechnipFMC

Peak Oil Demand
Despite a number of prognostications, some of which are rooted in the COVID-19 pandemic, there remains much uncertainty about the future of oil demand. This, in fact, will likely make the coming years more volatile as an investment could lag emerging demands in the developing world. While we could see a greater move away from oil in developed economies, the sheer scale of demands from the more than 6.4 billion people in the developing and less-developed economies of Asia, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and elsewhere will drive the future of the oil market. The last 30 years have highlighted that a decline in oil’s share of the global energy mix does not translate into a decline in oil demand, especially if total energy demand continues to grow. It is also important to recognize that other energy sources face their own set of difficulties in the development of their supply chains as they seek the scale necessary to meet projected energy needs. Hence, the uncertainties of the coming decades are significant and will carry challenges for consumers, governments, international relations, and the energy industry.

The Coming Age of Artificial Intelligence: The Future is Now
Artificial “machine” intelligence (AI) is playing an ever-greater role in our society. We are already using cruise control in our cars, automatic checkout at the drugstore, and are unable to live without our smartphones. The discussion around AI is polarized; people think either machines will solve all problems for everyone, or they will lead us down a dark, dystopian path into total human irrelevance. Regardless of what you believe, the idea that we might bring forth intelligent creation can be intrinsically frightening. In this session, acclaimed artificial intelligence pioneer and thought leader Amir Husain will prepare us for a brighter future; not with hyperbole about right and wrong, but with serious arguments about risk and potential.

What's Next for the World Oil and Gas Markets and Related Offshore Development
Over the last year, we experienced a historic demand shock resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic and a price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia. This event triggered a significant downturn with unprecedented price volatility, which further spurred concerns about market supply-demand balance. At this point, the market continues to rebalance, the US has had a change in leadership, and there has been significant lack of investment in oil and gas due to a turn towards renewables. What does this mean for the oil and gas industry and by extension the offshore market?
