(Singapore) ABS, the leading provider of classification services to the global marine and offshore industries, is participating in the Sea Asia conference 21-23 April 2015 in Singapore, where ABS Executive Vice President of Corporate Energy Development Ken Richardson is moderating the offshore marine forum.

While there are many challenges being faced by the offshore sector, Richardson says, one of the most interesting is how the industry will address the challenge of Big Data. “Big data has the potential to be transformational, which means it has to be a priority, ” he says.
