The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) is to host two deepwater technical sessions at Offshore Europe, providing a platform for organisations to demonstrate innovations that are pushing boundaries at new depths.

The two sessions scheduled are:

  • ‘New Technologies for Efficiency and Effectiveness’ – 9th September, at 09.30 – offering insights into innovations that help to reduce costs and improve reliability for developing and exploring oil and gas reserves. Organisations set to present include Nautronix, Tracerco, Viper Subsea, 2H Offshore Engineering, and Wild Well Control
  • ‘Subsea Challenges for Enabling Deep Water Production’ – 10th September, at 09.30 – and will cover innovations addressing key challenges from integrity and flexible riser fatigue to subsea processing and chemical injection. Presenters include: GE Oil & Gas, FMC Technologies, Wood Group Kenny, One Subsea, Plexus PLC, and Lux Assure.

Dr Bob Allwood, CEO, SUT, said: “As the industry delves into deep sea frontiers, new underwater technologies are required that can support safe exploration and production at extreme depths. The variety of new developments being presented during these two sessions highlights just how much progress is being made and the ambitions of the industry to push boundaries and open up access to new reserves.

“The next generation of glider technology for example is looking to explore at depths of 5,000 metres for three months at a time, not dissimilar to space exploration.”

Donald Thomson, VP Sales Global Commercial Acoustics, Nautronix, said: “Operators want more and more data from their wells and subsea assets, to allow them to manage their production and maintenance. Acoustic data transmission is now reliable enough to provide that data remotely through the water column, without the need for expensive cables.
