Subsea Expo 2020 Will Take a Fresh Approach ‘New Perspectives’ Call for Papers Opens for Annual Fla

The largest annual event for the underwater industry in Europe will take a fresh look at how to exploit the existing and emerging opportunities across all sectors, not just oil and gas and renewables. Under the theme of “New Perspectives” Subsea Expo 2020 is set to be bigger and better than ever as moving to Aberdeen’s new state of the art venue, P&J Live, allows the show to grow by more than a third. The 15th annual flagship event, organised by Subsea UK, comprises an exhibition, conference and awards dinner and will take place from the 11th – 13th of February 2020. Subsea UK has now opened the call for speakers for the conference which features an opening plenary and parallel technical ses

Magnetic Coupling to Break World Record

Leak-free drive system – handy when crossing the Atlantic UK Flowtechnik are supplying a humble magnetic coupling to a world-record breaking team – Angus Adventures to achieve the unthinkable – crossing the Atlantic in an autonomous solar-powered boat. The challenge is unprecedented, a task unachievable in 27 previous attempts. It seems like the impossible but for this team, who have rowed and cycled from Scotland to Syria, this is just another challenge to conquer. Angus Adventures were looking to circumnavigate the Atlantic crossing in a renewable and sustainable manner, having researched current energy-harvesting autonomous boats mostly developed by tech‑startups and universities, they co

Water Injection for Gas Gathering

To efficiently gather the gas and/or oil in a well, following primary and secondary activities it is necessary to employ enhanced recovery techniques. The preferred method is to inject produced water at high pressures to stimulate flow. IGas Energy plc has selected Cat Pumps UK Ltd. to provide engineered pump/motor skid packages due to their high reliability and robust qualities. The skid packages are ATEX rated and in some instances suitable for Sour Service (H2S). With our vast product capabilities, Cat Pumps is the pump of choice for Enhanced Gas Recover (EGR) and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) applications. We offer the following pump manifold options: Brass; Nickel Aluminum Bronze; 316 sta

Desalign Compact Flange

Destec Engineering have been designing & manufacturing products for the oil, gas, petrochemical & power generation industry for 50 years, and now Destec have a new product for a subsea misalignment application. In some of the most hostile subsea blocks it is a challenge to connect pipes with a misalignment, with subsea movement of the sea bed, pipes being dislodged and pipe defects there is always a need to connect the pipes in a fast way with minimal cost and with current pressures this is not always achievable. However, Destec Engineering have made a compact lightweight pipe connection rated to 1500lbs which is also piggable in both directions and will give a 5-degree misalignment. After s

Large Bolt Tensioning Takes Centre Stage at OE2019

Heico Fasteners UK will be demonstrating the large bolt tensioning capabilities of their innovative HEICO-TEC® Tension Nut at the upcoming Offshore Europe 2019. Tensioning of large bolted joints usually requires the use of specialist tooling, a factor that adds additional costs and delay. Tightening a bolt with a hydraulic cylinder has the disadvantage of the nut not being pre‑tensioned while the bolt was elongated and so a percentage of the elongation of the bolt is lost in joint settlement meaning only around two thirds of the bolt strength can be utilized. The unique design of the HEICO‑TEC® Tension Nut not only eliminates the need for specialist tooling but also maintains the full capaci
