The Oil & Gas Technology Centre
- Different potential regimes - EEZ vs International Waters
- Potential regimes under the prospecting, exploration and exploitation regulations
Thomas Cooper LLP
- The International Seabed Authority has a challenging dual role - to develop the mineral resources of the seabed beyond national jurisdiction, whilst also protecting and preserving the marine environment.
- Setting rules, regulations and procedures for environmental management will be a key means of discharging that environmental protection responsibility.
- This presentation examines some possible gaps within the current regime and the Exploitation Regulations now being drafted
The PEW Charitable Trusts
- Focus on explaining the details of the new seabed minerals legislation and licencing process
- Address the related high technical, social, financial and environmental concerns and requirements
- Providing clarity and security to the resource owner, industry and stakeholders
Seabed Minerals Authority
- Summarising the lessons from the UK marine mining industry
- Reviewing the strategies and methodologies used to achieve sustainable mining projects
- Exploring the experience of managing potentially competing demands for rights and space
- Best practice to develop and manage the associated legal and administrative requirements
MarineSpace and University of Plymouth
- DSM is new, unproven, and represents dispersed, wide-area development of a remote and untouched environment
- Governance of the sector is emerging, whilst communication of information and data is currently limited
- Exploring, understanding, and managing the issues arising from contentious geoscience will play a key role in the success of the sector
University of Plymouth
- Overview of the requirement of technology and green economy for certain metals that could be supplied by DSM
- In the era of decarbonisation we need to consider the impact of the energy requirement for extracting seabed resources and consider novel methods for low energy extraction.

- Regional opportunities to harvest Seafloor Massive Sulphides and Manganese Nodules
Discover the hottest regional opportunities to harvest Seafloor Massive Sulphides and Manganese Nodules from geological experts
- Working with nations through a regulatory framework, the opportunities and risks
Hear from key regulators and develop a cohesive plan to work with the International Seabed Authority and individual nations through the regulatory challenges
- Technological developments associated with commercialising Deep sea mining
Be at the cutting edge of technological developments for deep sea mining and explore diversification opportunities for existing companies involved in offshore applications

William Senke, Lockheed Martin
- The event provided a high quality agenda and set of speakers for this important, emerging industry.
Paul Holthus, World Ocean Council
- A very informative summit, addressing novel technical approaches for exploration and monitoring of deep sea mining. The emphasis on environmental responsibility was very encouraging.
Richard Davies, Fugro
- Deep sea mining is together with shale fuel the most interesting and ground breaking growth industry in the next 25 years- and the yearly deep sea mining summit is a key forum to attend.
Peter Jantzen, Wartsila
- The event brought together a wide spectrum of industry players and the associated flow of an organisations to provide an up to date window into a new developing industry.
Rick Phipps, Seas Offshore
- Excellent conference, great to have key industry players in one room.
Mark Brown, Minister of Minerals and Natural Resources, Cook Islands
- The presentations were very relevant to our current issues and I found the conference very useful both technically and socially.
Robert Goodden, Subsea minerals
- The organisers have done a fantastic job interacting together a complementary set of subject relevant to the development of the deep sea mining section.
