Nominations Open for Annual Subsea UK Awards

Nominations are now open for the 2020 Subsea UK Awards which will recognise companies and individuals who are leading the way in the UK’s £7.5billion subsea sector. Entries are being sought for the best subsea company of the year award, which is sponsored by the Oil & Gas Authority, and the young emerging talent award, which is sponsored by SMD. The evening will also recognise achievements in innovation with the innovation for safety award, which is sponsored by Boskalis, and the innovation and technology award, which is sponsored by Simmons & Co International. Companies are also being invited to put forward nominations for the best small company and global exports awards. An individual who

Optimising Seawater Intake for Efficient Offshore Operations

In McKinsey’s latest report, LNG growth is predicted to continue to rise at around 3% a year for the next 15 years, and infrastructure development is racing to keep up. In light of this, FLNG projects are also predicted to gain momentum, alongside a steady stream of announcements for planned FPSO operations, driven by the offshore benefits such as shorter construction times, cost savings and mobility to name but a few. However, in order for such benefits to be fully realised, all aspects of operations need to be streamlined, with seawater intake an often-overlooked component. Heat generation by gas compression and liquefaction must be mitigated by seawater intake risers (SWIRs), moving huge

Recognise the Trend at an Early Stage

Decisive advantages through early monitoring of insulation resistances Insulation monitoring devices pioneered by Bender, provide plant operators with reliable electrical safety technology which reduces the costs of maintenance, providing early trend results in monitoring the insulation resistance. The ISOMETER® series iso685 is proven across the globe and Bender has witnessed a very positive response following the launch of the new isoHR685. This device variant can measure insulation resistances up to the 10 GΩ range in subsea applications. Early Recognition and Quality Assurance It is possible to counteract the sudden appearance of an insulation fault at a very early stage: The isoHR685 me

Tracerco Secure 7 Subsea Inspection Projects in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico and West Africa

Tracerco, part of Johnson Matthey Plc, has recently been awarded 7 subsea inspection projects to provide critical flow assurance and asset integrity data on a variety of pipelines, flowlines and risers in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico (GoM) and Offshore West Africa. Through the use of DiscoveryTM, Tracerco’s Subsea CT Scanner, each operator will obtain full tomographic images of pipe wall thickness and contents to gain an enhanced understanding of their pipeline condition and the process fluid. As CT scanning provides a non-intrusive inspection method, all assets will remain operational throughout each project, limiting the potential of any (further) deferment of production. The first of the

Cygnus Instruments Offers Offshore Inspection Solutions for Divers – for Every Condition

Cygnus Instruments has its roots firmly in the offshore sector - and has been proudly producing the highest quality ultrasonic inspection equipment for commercial divers over 35 years. One of the first products that Cygnus brought to market in the 1980s was a subsea ultrasonic thickness gauge. And it is testament to the outstanding original design that little has changed in its fundamental form over the last three decades. However, as technology, understanding – and subsequently training - have advanced, Cygnus has kept pace and has introduced new products to cope not only with the changing times – but also with the varying conditions of the subsea environment. The Original Cygnus Underwater

Modulift Spreader Beams Go to New Depths

As part of their innovative new product development strategy, and to meet customer demands within the subsea industry, Modulift, the global engineering company have made changes to their standard range of Modular Spreader Beams so that they can now be used in water up to a depth of 150mtrs, at no extra cost. Alongside offering specialist technical expertise, the UK‑based company manufactures lifting and spreader beams, spreader frames and other ‘below the hook’ lifting equipment, that is used globally across sectors including wind energy, nuclear, construction, and the oil and gas industries. Modulift Standard Modular Beam – Now for Use in Subsea Due to the efficient shape and weights of the

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; ·
