autonomy, instrumentation, repeatability and accuracy. Thanks to its hundreds of acoustic codes for interrogation and reply, Canopus can be used in the most complex environments without any acoustic interferences. It features underwater acoustic communication between transponders, transceivers and surface equipment and embeds environmental temperature, pressure, sound velocity and inclinometer sensors. Low power consumption (up to four years of battery life in listening mode) and intelligent ping management feature make Canopus suited for subsea operations such as seafloor Geodesy, subsea monitoring,

, more efficiently and more cost effectively.” The first-ever fullbore interventionless plug-and-perf system eliminates the need for milling operations and leaves nothing behind in the wellbore. As a result, no plug debris is produced to surface where it can potentially interfere with surface equipment. The technique eliminates lateral length restrictions, which maximizes reservoir contact and estimated ultimate recovery, and it greatly reduces intervention-related risks and costs. The Infinity system underwent extensive material science and laboratory validation and has been field tested

which could have been labour intensive and costly to correct if they weren’t identified earlier."   "The new camera features improved speeds and picture quality compared to similar downhole video cameras currently on the market, allowing for advanced inspection of oilfield surface equipment for integrity issues."   EV, which splits its headquarters between Norwich and Aberdeen, has a team of around 90 employees, 13 of whom work in the Aberdeen office. The company has 17 global bases.

can be shut in 5 seconds, and the wellbore fluids and expanding gasses diverted to a mud and gas separator. The drilling fluid can be returned to the rig systems, and the gas safely vented, with no environmental impact or risk to the vessel. Aker Solutions delivers the complete subsea system and surface equipment. The award is handed out by the ASME International Petroleum Technology Institute. ASME was founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineer and is today a global organisation dedicated to promoting the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering.
