The future is on the sea floor

Dr Chris Walker argues that the oil industry is about to witness a paradigm shift in the utilisation of both re-deployable and permanently installed ocean bottom data.

ROVs enter the seismic market

Electric ROVs have seen a major shift in both size and work capability

Umbilicals and electromechanical cables

Highly engineered umbilicals, electromechanical cables, synthetic rope and steel cable solutions for use in harsh environments

Air gun umbilical systems

Many seismic survey companies operate air gun umbilical systems obtained from a variety of manufacturers and find it increasingly difficult to maintain or repair them

Internal and external inspection of submerged pipelines

Pipelines are used throughout the world to transport various substances, such as natural gas and oil, over long distances. While pipelines run both over land and sea, Thomas Petersson will focus on submerged pipelines.
