Offshore Energy (TG4)

Offshore energy plays a significant role within today’s society and our everyday lives. Attendance at our Offshore Energy Technical Group meetings allows you to access knowledge of topics including offshore structures, pipelines, risers, process systems, subsea installations, offshore wind farms, tidal/wave power installations.

The group covers the technology areas of materials, equipment, welding, design, fabrication, non-destructive testing and inspection.

Meet the TG4 Chair

Eur Ing Brian Bell CEng, FWeldI

Currently retired, the last 25 years of his career were as a specialist/consultant in materials, welding, corrosion and quality engineering for the oil and gas industry working with a large number of oil and gas operators, many leading contractors and several regulatory bodies/authorities etc.  The previous 10 years, Brian was heavily involved in materials engineering in forefront areas within the British nuclear industry.

Brian gained extensive experience in all pipeline, piping, structural and associated materials together with their fabrication and service performances as well as the engineering and quality assurance aspects of procurement, plus the testing of valves and other hardware.
