Deep water structure installation – made easy

Our Gyro Compatt 6 is a great way to simplify structure installation operations in all water depths. Using our Gyro Compatt 6 helped offshore contractor China Offshore Fugro Geosolutions (COFG) performed smooth structure installations during the latest phase of the deep water Liuhua field in the South China Sea.

Long ROV excursions, high elevation tracking, noisy waters – not a problem

ROV pipeline inspections in shallow water – with long excursions and high elevation tracking requirements – can pose major challenges for even the best USBL systems. With SPRINT-Nav in the mix, it’s no longer an issue. Tavis Letherby, Survey/ROV Manager at CCC (Underwater Engineering), explains.

Extending the limits of autonomous systems

Improving the endurance and navigational precision of underwater autonomous systems, while also reducing costs, could provide disruptive capability in the subsea monitoring and inspection space. Geraint West, Ocean Science Head of Market, explore the challenges and solutions.

Deepwater data analytics – asset monitoring at the edge

Thousands of kilometres of pipeline, flowline, and interconnecting spool pieces are installed on the world’s sea and ocean floors. Monitoring and maintaining these vast networks of pipes can be challenging. Explore how Oceaneering provided the analytics they needed to monitor these pipes using our SMART technology.

Ranger 2 – it’s anything but standard.

With our Ranger 2 permanently installed onboard the RRS James Cook, a team from the UK’s National Oceanography Centre (NOC) was able to significantly reduce the uncertainty around the position of their autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV).

Seismic operations in the transition zone

We’re doing so much more using unmanned surface vessel (USV) systems, right through the life cycle of exploration and production operations. It starts with the support of seismic data acquisition, using our Transition Zone Transceiver (TZ Transceiver).

Rewriting the subsea survey rules

Fusion 2 is not just simplifying offshore survey operations, it’s changing how people operate – for the better. Mike Clark, Global Survey Manager, i-Tech 7, told Baseline about their route to demonstrating reductions in offshore vessel schedules for Subsea 7’s deepwater field development projects using the real-time SLAM capability in Fusion 2.

How to optimise carbon storage monitoring with marine robotics

Climate change is driving a ramping up of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects globally, as countries work to reduce their emissions. There’s also more focus on how to make sure the stuff stays stored in the ground. Read on to hear about our involvement.

Using a hammer to crack a nut? Try using a USV instead

USVs are no longer a niche tool used within defence, they’re now regularly patrolling our oceans, gathering hydrographic and oceanographic data. Is it time that they were also used to support smarter, cleaner and more cost-effective offshore construction operations? Ed Moller, Head of Energy, thinks so.
