Subsea Tieback Research Hub Opens in WA

A new research and technology center backed by Chevron and Woodside has been launched at The University of Western Australia (UWA) to study long subsea tiebacks.The Center for Long Subsea Tiebacks laboratory located at UWA will focus on long subsea tieback discoveries that will enhance industry's understanding of hostile deepwater conditions. The development of new long subsea tieback technology helps to unlock the economic viability of WA gas fields that have not yet been commercialized due to their location.Jointly funded by Chevron and Woodside with approximately AUD$600,000 per annum

Woodside Backs Seismic Data Acquisition Company

Australian oil and gas producer Woodside said it has signed a Shareholders Agreement with Perth-based Blue Ocean Monitoring (BOM) to invest in seismic data acquisition company Blue Ocean Seismic Services (BOSS).BOSS is developing a solution that that aims to make ocean bottom seismic data acquisition cheaper and more accessible. The concept, jointly developed by Woodside and BOM, focuses on using autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) in place of remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV) to place nodes on the ocean floor that capture and record soundwaves. The BOSS-designed AUVs are small submarines
