NPD Completes Seabed Minerals Expedition

for the regulation of the petroleum resources on the Norwegian continental shelf, during the four-week expedition, the NPD has made several discoveries of previously unknown sulphide deposits, and collected data covering large areas. These deposits include metals and minerals that are important in battery technology, wind turbines and mobile telephones.The Mohns Ridge is an oceanic spreading ridge that separates two tectonic plates, and the objective of the expedition was to map the seabed with a view toward mineral resources in the area.The NPD has been assigned the task of mapping and proving deep sea

Subsea Power Hub Tested in Aberdeen

, during a recent workshop test program in Aberdeen.During the trials, supported by the Oil & Gas Technology Center (OGTC) and a North Sea operator, the SPH was used to power a commercial Subsea Control Module (SCM) and local power distribution system. By operating the SCM using lithium ion battery technology, located within EC-OG’s proprietary Energy Storage and Intelligent Energy Management System, the test confirmed the SPH’s capabilities for operating North Sea wells without a power umbilical from a topside installation.The SPH combines EC-OG’s core technologies of subsea energy
