Seventh international conference of offshore industries is hold on May 2017 in Sharif University of Technology.
Due to dramatic growth in demand for fossil energy, many countries consider Middle East, particularly the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea, as energy source. A glance at the size of the investment made in these areas and presence of foreign firms there confirm this claim. As Iran enjoys this natural position as great blessings of God, and is placed between 2 high energy hub, and presence of common marine fields, it should provide a base to form and develop more design, engineering and contracting companies in offshore industries . The success of the companies in the country (doing the projects) and abroad (export technical and engineering services) depends on upgrading their technical knowledge to develop and improve the quality of the relevant projects. Fortunately, over the last few years, knowledge of construction and mining in oil and gas industries, establishing different installations are becoming independent to transport products from sea to dry.so, they do not need help of other countries for this work.
Therefore, in current situation of Iran, considering the opportunities and threats, adopting proper procedures in the field of new technologies and facilitating the process of improving the level of knowledge and expertise on offshore industries contractors in this area are very important and require a comprehensive and national view. Considering the importance of the latest achievements and technical innovation by experts in this field, different activities were made in this field. Holding 4th national conference of offshore industries was its strength. Following these activities in future conference, whose main approach is engineering power in offshore industries, the main technical issues of Iranian companies involved in offshore engineering projects are discussed by authorities. We hope holding this conference helps to develop and improve engineering power of offshore industries of Iran. Obviously, it requires consultation and scientific participation of all experts, industry leaders and academics in the field of offshore industry of Iran.
