Hydra Offshore and Subsea Construction Hires Marine Industry Expert

Hydra Offshore Construction and Subsea is pleased to announce the recent hiring of Daryl Walter, a 40-year marine industry professional. As project manager, Walter will take the lead on the DP2 Saturation Diving Vessel, Subsea Responder I. He will oversee estimating proposals and will implant strategic initiatives to expand Hydra’s presence in the marine oil and gas industry. Walter’s experience in the industry began during his deployment to Thailand in the U.S. Air Force, where he completed multiple dives on shipwrecks. From that point forward, there was no looking back. Upon discharge, he attended dive school and received his degree in marine technology. Throughout his career, Daryl has wo

GasOil Delivers SP Wireless Running Line Dynamometer to Taiwan Cable Laying Project

Singapore-based Gas Oil Services (GasOil), a specialist provider to the offshore oil and gas industry, has delivered a wireless 80t capacity Straightpoint (SP) Running Line Dynamometer to a pipe laying project offshore Taiwan. The dynamometer, part of SP’s tension in motion range, was purchased by a Japanese company that employed it on wire rope as the cable was deployed from a vessel. The end user sought a wireless versus a cabled solution. Sometimes called a TIMH, the product is built with dockside, marine, offshore, towage and salvage applications in mind. It is typically used when there is no anchor or dead end on the line, for example, when there is a requirement to measure a force at a

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; • 3

OTAQ OceanSENSE Leak & Cement Detection System

OceanSENSE™ is the market leading florescence based underwater leak and cement detection system proven on over 1000 offshore projects globally since 2010 and with close to a 100% success rate. The system is deployed in a variety of applications, including locating leaks in subsea hydraulic control systems, flowlines, risers and infrastructure. Mobilised in a pre-commissioning role, OceanSENSE™ is used to confirm the structural integrity of spool tie ins, pipelines and subsea structures. The system is widely used to detect cement returns at the seafloor when forming new wells, where it reduces cementing costs and therefore can save vessel time. OceanSENSE™ is also deployed in a decommissionin

Handing Control of Industry Intelligence Back to E&P Professionals

It’s long been an open secret in the oil and gas industry that getting hold of business intelligence would typically involve a commitment to a costly subscription from one of a handful of big research firms. Even then, the task of locating exactly the information needed often required the skills of a specialist researcher. Compounding the problem were also potential issues around the veracity and timeliness of data, as well as expensive subscriptions often providing superfluous and unwanted services and data. Two geologists, Francis Cram and Simon Lunn, frustrated with trying to access industry data to support their work at a small UK independent, decided there must be a better way. By 2015
