Competition Fierce for MCEDD Technical Program

With over 140 abstracts submitted, the competition is fierce for the 2018 technical program.  The Advisory Board are finalizing their votes this week.

We have received 145 “Abstracts” for possible inclusion within the 2018 main Technical Program.  (In addition to these sessions we will also have Two Interactive Panel Sessions).  The Advisory Board will vote and decide on the abstracts which will be approved for only 48 available speaking slots.  The full technical program will be available in late January.


This year 80 companies submitted abstracts.  The six companies who submitted the most abstracts, collectively submitted 57 abstracts, with the remaining 88 submitted by 74 companies.




Industry topic interest continues to favor Subsea Technologies and Pipelines, Flowlines and Risers accounting for well over 50% of total abstracts received.
