Marine Data Management Software

Ocean Business 2009 will see the launch of a software solution designed for the management of marine information. SeaZone's GeoTemporal software allows import, processing and presentation of marine data from multiple sources. It then creates standard formatted data so that the information can be used in different Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Previously only specialist software programs had existed and offered limited data interchange capability.   SeaZone GeoTemporal represents a second generation of software allowing the management of a wide diversity of data with greatly improved levels of interoperability. This ensures marine information can be made widely available for further use... (read more)

CETO Wave Energy Generator Tested at COAST Facility

Carnegie Wave Energy Limited (Carnegie) has undertaken a comprehensive wave tank testing programme of its CETO 6 technology design at the University of Plymouth’s Coastal, Ocean and Sediment Test (COAST) facility in the UK. CWE UK chief executive officer Tim Sawyer and Carnegie’s senior hydrodynamics engineer Dr Ashkan Rafiee were both on hand as comprehensive testing of the CETO 6 performance across a range of sea states took place.The wave tank testing will build on Carnegie’s internal modelling as well as previous wave tank testing and the successful in-ocean operation of the CETO 5 system in the now completed Perth Wave Energy...

Total and Shell Buy into MACH Dataset

BMT ARGOSS, the Met Office and Oceanweather have launched their joint Mid-Atlantic Current Hindcast (MACH) dataset, resulting in two successful data sales to oil and gas majors, Shell International Petroleum Company and Total. The MACH dataset provides information on the long-term variability of currents over a 20-year period and has been validated against measured data throughout the region. The initial focus has been to provide a 20-year fine-resolution dataset for the West Africa oil and gas concession region. The MACH dataset will be used to better understand the ocean conditions within a potential development site or to gain advanced knowledge... (read more)

PSDM Brings Understanding in Central North Sea

Although the Central North Sea (CNS) is a mature basin, it is still rich in opportunities for the development and discovery of new fields as the area is notoriously challenging for seismic imaging, especially in the deep high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) part of the Central Graben. However, CGG’s Cornerstone dataset benefits from a portfolio of new technology to address these imaging challenges, creating new opportunities. The advanced ghost wavefield elimination (GWE) technique has been applied to the legacy Cornerstone data to extend the bandwidth as near as possible to the new BroadSeis data, so that it can be merged to create...

Assessing Offshore Energy Risks

Detailed marine mapping is being used to identify and understand the risks associated in the siting of offshore renewable energy installations. Purchased by Abbott Risk Consulting, the SeaZone data is being used to explore the impact of new installations on other marine users and in support of studies involving Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling.     Abbott Risk Consulting (ARC) undertakes navigational safety and engineering risk management in the offshore oil and gas and renewables sectors. The data purchased from SeaZone, including SeaZone HydroSpatial and SeaZone Charted Raster, is being used by ARC to support an increasing number of studies,... (read more)
