Shuttle Tanker Tech & Ops Webinar Day

09:00 - 17:30


Be sure to join us for Shuttle Tanker Tech & Ops Webinar Day

Premier Partner:



Shuttle tanker operations: North Sea & offshore Brazil

Riviera’s virtual Shuttle Tanker Tech & Ops Webinar Day will focus on shuttle tanker operations in the North Sea and offshore Brazil. Each 1.5-hour session is tailored to address the specific operational, regulatory and market conditions of the region being covered and will deliver practical insights and meaningful answers on what it will take to operate successfully in the years ahead. There is plenty to discuss!


There are currently around 110 shuttle tankers of all sizes in service. The fleet is ageing and approximately 40% is earmarked for replacement. Operators preparing for this renewal – wherever they are trading – must resolve key and often novel questions when drawing up specifications to ensure current and future operating goals can be met and emissions targets reached.


Registration is free, please sign up below.


To guarantee a position on one of the webinar panels, as either a premium partner or sponsored presenter and panellist, please speak with Paul Dowling. A number of positions are made available throughout our webinar weeks for our commercial partners on a first come, first served basis.


Please join us for any or all of the following:

Fleet renewal and future proofing shuttle
tanker operations offshore Brazil

Date: Monday 29 March Time: 16:00-17:30 BST

Watch now


The Brazilian shuttle tanker market is highly prospective. However, a lack of infrastructure to support LNG-fuelled vessels means operators have to either bide their time while it is built up or consider an alternative means of propelling their next generation of shuttle tankers. With the clock ticking on both the existing fleet and regulatory requirements, the need to set tomorrow’s strategy today is pressing.


Join us as we discuss

  • Meeting current Petrobras specification and crewing requirements
  • Design challenges when wind, waves and current go in different directions
  • Why DP2 is required offshore Brazil
  • The LNG conundrum: power, propulsion and fuelling options assessed
  • Strategies for fleet renewal and future proofing shuttle tanker operations offshore Brazil

Panellists include:

Christian Fjell, Sustainability Manager, Altera Infrastructure Shuttle & Storage
Frank Aksel Svanes, Specialist, Platform Technology Ship Technology, Equinor
Lauri Tiainen, Director of Thrusters & Propulsion Control Systems, Wärtsilä
Geir Sekkesæter, Managing Director, OSM Europe
