Book Event

This webinar will provide an overview of F&G Mapping and advancements in detection technology which can be combined to optimise detection designs and strategies in the offshore and onshore oil and gas industry. The webinar will provide an overview of what is being done now in F&G Design, and where the industry is heading. The webinar will combine a presentation, live demonstration of 3D F&G Mapping and Q&A session.

The webinar is aimed at anyone involved in F&G design, the approval of such designs, or the spcification of detection strategies/ technologies. It will provide an overview of the F&G Mapping process, and discuss the benefits of such an approach, not only to cost, but to site safety and auditability.
