The contract continues the two companies’ 8-year working relationship; in 2012, they performed the world’s-first underdeck inspection. Despite streams of data being available on platforms about the condition of topside and drilling equipment, most experts agree that only a small fraction of such data is used. Whether for a fleet or single platform, AI can transform an offshore enterprise.
Penspen will also carry out engineering services on the Zirku Island plant. Wood is Shell’s exclusive partner for Shell’s Smart Choke technology, which suppresses riser-induced slugging. A small core team with the ability to make decisions was responsible for getting a subsea tie-back project up to sanction within a short-time frame. SPE’s technical sections offer communities rich with industry expertise. And your engagement adds to the wealth of knowledge to be shared.
Drone Used For World's First Logistics Operation to Equinor Platform The Norwegian company completed what it describes as the world’s first logistics operation with a drone to an offshore installation. The contract continues the two companies’ 8-year working relationship; in 2012, they performed the world’s-first underdeck inspection. The aerospace giant is launching a new business unit to cash in on the autonomous aviation market. It will act as a systems integrator for all Honeywell products and services that could be used in this industry. Immersive technology on projects such as wellsite planning incorporates XR, drones, and collaboration.
Topics include completion design and installation, intelligent wells, sand control, hydraulic fracturing, acidizing and stimulation, and well integrity. Special interests are supported through technical sections, and peer-reviewed papers are published in both SPE Drilling & Completions and SPE Production & Operations journals. Topics include information systems, data use and management with specializations covered in technical sections and articles published in the Data Science and Digital Engineering online magazine. Special interests are supported through technical sections, and peer-reviewed papers are published in the journal SPE Drilling & Completions. Topics include processing, flow assurance and subsea systems, measurement and control, platforms and floating systems, and facilities operations.
Aquabotix’s SwarmDiver technology marks a major milestone in the growing trend toward swarm-deployed underwater vehicles. SPE’s newly launched technical section will provide a central hub for questions, answers, discussion, collaboration, and networking around unmanned systems for the oil and gas industry.
Ground sensors on assets over a broad area have limited returns on investment if the asset life cycle is less than 10 years, and obsolescence of the technology if it exceeds 10 years. Complementing sensors with aerial remote sensing at scale may help to mitigate these issues. Operators need to take steps to protect their facilities from drone security breaches by outsiders. The costs an attacker incurs in developing tools to break into and control infrastructure is low compared to the costs an operator incurs in defending against those tools. SPE’s newly launched technical section will provide a central hub for questions, answers, discussion, collaboration, and networking around unmanned systems for the oil and gas industry.
Is Optical Gas Imaging the New Solution for Methane Detection? Thermal imaging helps operators maintain regulatory compliance on methane-emissions requirements. Optical gas imaging technology may be an answer in allowing for faster, more efficient inspections, but there are hurdles to its adoption. How can its widespread use become a reality? Ground sensors on assets over a broad area have limited returns on investment if the asset life cycle is less than 10 years, and obsolescence of the technology if it exceeds 10 years.
Fugro and SEA-KIT’s partnership will develop unmanned vessels, while HII and Kongsberg will market naval and maritime products. Sensors, robots, and artificial intelligence have made their way into a number of areas within the industry, including pipeline inspections. Shell has begun to examine the innovative technologies that could shift the inspection paradigm. The subsea operations company said its most recent campaign is the first fully unmanned offshore pipeline inspection completed “over the horizon,” surveying up to 100 km from the shore. Saipem is taking the lead in advancing the capabilities of FlatFish, an autonomous underwater vehicle being developed by Shell for commercial application by 2020.
The 3-year contracts were awarded to Solstad, OceanPact, and Fugro. The fully remote inspection was conducted with an ROV to increase worker safety and security and reduce environmental exposure on an offshore platform. Development in software, technology, and a global 4G network combine to make ROV operations possible between offshore vessels and remote locations. The inspection projects to assess water ingress will be done via remotely operated vehicle. The A-frame is DNV certified.
A Technical Section represents a grouping of global members who share an interest in a specific technical topic. These communities of SPE members share ideas, promote competence, and develop projects related to their technical interest. Technical Sections tend to be more task-oriented than discussion-oriented. They meet virtually for the most part, but are encouraged to hold a face-to-face meeting at least once a year. The Technical Sections Operations Manual (TSOM) is your go-to source for information about how to conduct your technical section activities. You can learn about your individual role and find the forms and deadlines associated with your duties. Questions may be directed to your staff liaison, or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
