Offshore Northern Seas 2018 (ONS 2018) conference and exhibition is a biennial event, alternating with Offshore Europe 2017 and Offshore Northern Seas Norway (ONS Norway). Offshore Northern Seas 2018 will be the 22nd ONS since 1974. Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) is one of the key industry exhibitions and conferences for the offshore oil and gas industry and will be held in Stavanger from 27-30 August 2018, at the Stavanger Forum. Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) provides a platform for the presentation of the political, economic and technological issues involving the international oil and gas industry, as well as showcasing the latest innovations within the industry. ONS believes that Innovation is essential for the development of new and cleaner methods of energy production and as such, ONS 2018 will incorporate the ONS Innovation Park, which will have a special focus on the oil and gas industry’s increasing reliance on cutting-edge technology. The Innovation Park also serves as a background for the prestigious Offshore Northern Seas Innovation Awards. In recent years, Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) has incorporated broader energy issues, whilst maintaining its focus on the petroleum industry. With over 1200 exhibitors and around 65,000 visitors, Offshore Northern Seas 2018 is not to be missed.
