China Offshore Engineering Symposium 2013 (COES 2013)

Charting A New Offshore Engineering Course Amid Shipbuilding Backlash


October 10-11 Beijing

Organized by BMC China

Supported by Ministry Industry and Information Technology

Supervised by Supported by China National Offshore Oil Corporation


The second COES annual will continue power ahead with even stronger array of speakers and panelists, who will share their most recent offshore technologies and fabrication concepts. To be supervised by Chinese national oil companies and government entities, the event will also be an avenue for government to announce the latest policies in offshore equipment manufacturing and development plans. It will also bring to the audience the latest innovations in offshore drilling, subsea technology, floating unit management and new fabrication methodology, logistics and safety in the industry. In particular, the event will focus on how offshore sector can abode well and take advantage of the current downturn of the shipping market. A special session on safety will deal with the topical issue of HSE amid the recent jack-up accident in Singapore’s Jurong shipyard. COES 2013 will be China’s top event for offshore engineering industry that you really cannot afford to miss.

17:50-18:10 Panel Discussion

Offshore engineering market is taking a dramatic turn as orders for traditional commercial vessels wane. The current market condition has prompted many yards to diversify into offshore engineering sector. Chinese yards, in competition with their peers in Singapore and South Korea, are bidding aggressively for high-spec units, but quality and delivery reliability are still major concerns. The panel will be kicked off with an opinion poll with audience to vote or select choices for questions such as


What are the implications of order drought for commercial ships to offshore projects?

What are top three weaknesses and strengths of Chinese yards?

Which projects will owners like to contract to Chinese yards, which not?

What Chinese yards to need to do for improvement?

How should Korean and Singaporean yards react to Chinese expansion?
