The ever growing worldwide demand for energy pushes oil and gas producing companies to explore and exploit new oil and gas reserves in less accessible areas. Extreme environments, such as the Arctic seas, require new insights, innovative techniques and solutions for working and living conditions. Heerema Marine Contractors invites contestants to address any aspect concerning working and living in these conditions and to come up with new ideas and solutions. The Battle specifically targets the impact on people and procedures, concerning their health, working and living conditions and safety. “Create new ideas on living and working conditions for offshore oil and gas workers in the extreme Arctic environment”
Because of the growing demand for energy, the delving of hard to reach oil and gas fields in the Arctic becomes attractive. In the first Heerema Battle we focused on the human factor: how can our people deal with the extreme weather conditions in this area? Now we pose a question regarding the construction of both onshore and offshore installations. Construction in the Arctic poses many challenges. Think of, among others, the ever changing weather conditions and the large distances (in transporting materials) that need to be bridged. The question we ask you to address: How can we use the arctic environment to our benefit in all areas of onshore and offshore construction for the Oil & Gas industry? Dare to be challenged! We invite you to use your creativity in helping us to develop concepts which recognize and use these circumstances to our advantage! Are you able to come up with a workable solution to a problem you signal in this field? Show us your creative and non-conventional way of thinking, win money and boost your CV all at once! Of course, it is needless ta say that possible damage to the fragile and precious environment is absolutely unacceptable. Download de heleBattle...
