December 2015 - N°4
The Chamber opens the doors to...
Preben Strom
         Preben Strøm
Preben Strøm is Managing Director of Subsea Valley.
Subsea Valley is the leading cluster within subsea technology and engineering with more than 200 member companies in the capital region of Norway. Subsea Valley represents the entire value chain of operators, major system integrators and smaller technology and service providers, and has a strategic goal of improving competitiveness and innovation capabilities through collaboration.
 What is your vision of 2016 for the Norwegian subsea industry?
2016 will be a challenging year, not only for subsea, but for the entire oil/gas industry in Norway. Even if the oil price will increase, there is a time delay for projects and also for qualified people to some extent. This will make 2016 and maybe also 2017 one of the toughest years ever for our industry. Read the entire interview>>
