The background to the seminar is a series of incidents involving flexible pipes in recent years. In our annual summary of trends in risk levels on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (RNNP), flexible pipes account for the majority of reported injuries and incidents involving pipelines, risers and subsea installations.

The aim of the seminar is to increase general knowledge about the integrity management of flexible pipes and to share experiences of design, installation and operation with a view to risk reduction and continuous improvement.
