Offshore Survey Equipment Order

Chinese oil company CNOOC has placed an order with A.P. van den Berg for the delivery of a WISON-APB seafloor survey system. COSL, subsidiary of this company, will use this sytem on one of their geotechnical drill vessel in the South-Chinese sea.   This is the second Chinese order in a short while, after the delivery of a land survey vehicle. A.P. van den Berg exports the majority of its products world-wide. Oil companies are surveying existing oil and gas fields very intensively as the demand for fossil fuels is huge. They also are searching for new fields in deeper... (read more)

Offshore Cote D’Ivoire Repairs

HydroDive and it’s Alliance partners have just completed repairs in 235 ft. water offshore Cote D’Ivoire, carried out with the combination of Saturation diving techniques and a ‘Phoenix’ work-class ROV supporting operations from the DP II vessel ADAMS Surveyor. Although the ADAMS Surveyor has performed on various Diving and ROV Support Projects since the Alliance’s inception early this year, this is the first project where both the Phoenix ROV and HydroDive in Saturation have been in support. The Alliance has dedicated this spread to the West African market by permanently locating and operating from Nigeria. This allows it to be... (read more)

Deep Offshore Metrology Tool

Spool and jumper metrologies constitute a critical path in the subsea pipe installation process. They can often occupy large construction vessels ‘just’ for survey operations that may last more than a full day, requiring several types of sensors (long baseline, gyros, depth sensors, etc.), as well as highly qualified surveyors. Moreover, measurement error may lead to spool misfit that has a dramatic impact on the overall project schedule. A newly designed metrology system, which may be seen as an acoustic taut wire, has now reached maturity and has been extensively used in 2006/2007 for different spool and jumper metrology projects,...

Measurement Contract Offshore Norway

Metocean Services International (MSI) has been awarded a one-year current measurement programme for nine locations in the far north of Norway (their 2nd long-term contract to be awarded in Norway within a year). The Norwegian Oil Industry Association (OLF) has initiated this study to increase their understanding and knowledge on metocean data in the Lofoten - Vesterålen area in Nordland county.     The observations will also be given to support the Mareano programme. Some rigs with current profilers are already in place in the area and OLF is extending the current programmes with additional moorings.   For this programme... (read more)
