Looking to the Future of Satellite-derived Bathymetry

, first steps were taken to form a Satellite-Derived Bathymetry Working Group.“SDB is recognized as part of an integrated approach for nearshore mapping alongside with traditional survey methods,” said Dr. Marco Filippone, Chief Hydrographer at Fugro. “We can use SDB to augment existing technology as a benchmark for high definition data sets and with this new technique develop together enabling technology, processing workflows and machine learning – and we can really speed up the process providing the final users with a product that can be used for their needs.”The next

Partners Aim to Improve Riser Performance and Efficiency

that this technology, which is not currently available to the market, will address some of the key drawbacks of existing VIV suppression solutions as well as take riser performance to the next level. It also offers an exciting and significant possibility to retrofit this solution to some of our existing technology and open it up to a wider market.”Michael Spence, Senior VP with Reel Power Oil and Gas, added, “We chose to work with Trelleborg to develop and market our patented concept because of their knowledge of the target market and extensive track record in delivering new solutions that

position relative to vessels, wellheads and other subsea structures. Such methods must allow for tidal range, subsea currents, inherent buoyancy and variable weight. Critical in securing a solution is the method of holding or clamping equipment in place.    The demands this places on existing technology and design methodology – and the resulting solutions – is illustrated in the development of a TAPB piggyback clamp system designed to allow the development of the pioneering Laggan Tormore project off the Shetland Islands by Subsea 7.    During the installation and

Proserv Debuts New Subsea Sampling Tool

Global energy services company Proserv has launched a new subsea sampling cylinder that can improve the quality of results and reduce risks normally associated with sample transfer. Based on existing technology, the Proserv Subsea Sampling Cylinder (SSC) is the world’s first fully qualified and certified ‘for shipping’ sample cylinder to be deployed in a subsea environment. The system accurately captures well properties throughout the lifetime of a field. Subsea cylinders allow operators to take representative production samples from a subsea  system for direct transfer to

JFSE Launches Twin T8000

T8000 technology which has been responsible for the successful completion of hundreds of subsea excavation projects worldwide over the past 19 years. JFSE engineers created a solution which combined immense power with precision controllability by bringing two units together and developing the existing technology further. The Twin T8000 has a total maximum output of 16,000 liters per second and had to achieve 0mm + 300mm accuracy of trench on this project. There were 15 crossings to negotiate.   The Twin T8000 equipment spread was mobilized on board the offshore supply vessel, Ocean Carrier
