Interview: André Lima Cordeiro, Executive Manager, Subsea Systems, Petrobras

Dec 29, 2021

Brazil has always pushed the boundaries of deepwater exploration and production – and it’s still doing so today. With some of the world’s largest deepwater reservoirs, that are often complex in themselves, it’s had to come up with new solutions…

Floating Offshore Wind: Attention Turns Subsea for Power Transport

Dec 28, 2021

From being an ugly duckling, floating offshore wind is now the Cinderella of the offshore renewables world. Attention is now being paid to floating and even subsea substation concepts to help bring this power to shore. Over the past year, expectations…

OE’s 2021 Top of the Festive YouTube Video Pops

Dec 21, 2021

No year is the same without the annual corporate festive YouTube videos. And while the pandemic is yet again trying to do its best to ruin our holidays, offshore companies have still provided us with a crop of Christmas cheer.Oceaneering, again…

Sourcing Seismic with Subsea Swarms

Dec 15, 2021

Swarm behavior of underwater vehicles has long been on the wish list. Couple that with collecting seismic data and you have an interesting challenge. The seismic industry has a track record for innovation – Blue Ocean Seismic Services is taking on the latest challenge…

Offshore Renewable Energy: A Port Puzzle for Floating Offshore Wind

Dec 08, 2021

After being very much on the margins of the offshore wind industry, floating offshore wind now appears to be ready to hit the mainstream. With gigawatt scale developments already on the horizon, what will the infrastructure needed to build and support them look like…

Digitalization: Designing with a Digital Twin

Oct 20, 2021

According to Oil & Gas UK’s latest Tech Insights report, data and digital solutions are finally becoming an integral part of the asset lifecycle. One of the largest areas where they’re applied is facilities management, but what about the design phase…

Subsea Vehicles: To Be (resident), or Not to Be?

Oct 11, 2021

That’s the question? Or, more specifically, are there alternative ways of delivering robotics to where they’re needed without having to have seabed docking stations? Elaine Maslin takes a look.  The idea for some kind of resident subsea vehicle has been around for some time…

Tech File: A Resident Eyeball ROV

Aug 19, 2021

There's also space in the market for resident observation systems, believe Boxfish Research and Transmark Subsea. The two companies signed a partnership agreement in October 2020 to deliver a fully autonomous resident observation ROV, the ARV-i…

Subsea Tech: Taking 3D Printing to the Seabed

Aug 04, 2021

Underwater pipeline repair is an unavoidable and also fairly intensive activity within the offshore industry. There’s a lot of it on the seabed, some of it is old and/or subject to corrosive substances and even damage by anchor or trawler gear…

ROBOTICS: Meet Your New Offshore Robotic Co-workers; Charles, Eddie, ANYmal & Spot

Aug 03, 2021

Within the last 12 months, a series of significant steps have been made in the world of offshore robotics; a number of legged and tracked robots made their first steps onto and around offshore facilities in Malaysia, the Netherlands, Norway and the US…

Need a Survey? There’s a USV for That

Jun 09, 2021

While the adoption of unmanned/uncrewed surfaces vessels (USVs) was initially in defence, use of these low footprint systems has spread into other sectors, not least survey, and now the race is on for greater capability, endurance and autonomy…

Plugging the Hole

Mar 01, 2021

Sitting at 49% of the total cost of decommissioning, wells plugging and abandonment (P&A) has long been high on the hit-list on the decommissioning cost reduction agenda. It’s a task that has no returns on the cost to do it, and activity is increasing…

Geothermal Energy: A New Life for Old Offshore Oil Wells?

Feb 28, 2021

Old offshore oil wells could be turned into geothermal energy producers under a plan by a new consortium. The group, The Aquarius North Sea Geothermal Consortium, is “actively” working with North Sea operators to see if old wells could be used to generate geothermal energy for existing platforms…

Subsea Technology: Remote Power, On Demand

Jan 06, 2021

Taking the power to where you want it is another option – perhaps not for compression or pumping system, but potentially for monitoring, inspection, and even intervention systems, such as resident robotics concepts.It’s an idea some have been looking at…

Putting Power on the Seabed: Edging towards a Subsea Powerhouse

Dec 29, 2020

Ten years ago, a future where subsea fields and their power-hungry process equipment could be fully electrified, enabling long step-outs to tap remote reserves with lean new infrastructure architectures, lit the fuse for a spate of investment in subsea power distribution…
