Subsea & Marine
2020 has brought many challenges and changes to the world and the oil and gas industry has been no exception to the impacts of COVID-19. The subsea sector will now prepare to adjust and rise to the challenges ahead, as well as continuing to build Australia as a global LNG leader in line with the Western Australian Government’s mission.
Designing subsea tie-in spools using conventional methodologies is an often expensive and time-consuming process. We spoke to Perth-based subsea engineering consultancy Atteris about their development of an automated design process using risk-based probabilistic methods to make the design of tie-in spools faster, safer and more cost-efficient.
Expecting future marine fuels like ammonia, hydrogen or bio-LNG to slash carbon emissions from shipping in the short term is unrealistic and overlooks immediate steps which could be taken to reduce CO2 intensity from international shipping and better align the global fleet with the ambition levels of International Maritime Organization for 2030, the AOG 2020 conference will be told
Bhagwan Marine is celebrating one of its most significant achievements in two decades of operation, with the award of the challenging and prestigious Port of Melbourne Marine Maintenance Contract.
A decline in student enrolments in engineering courses, in particular from Australian students should be ringing alarm bells according to a report by Engineers Australia.
2018 was a great year for cash flow and profits of oil and gas operators. Despite the continued volatility in oil and gas prices, recent capital investment approvals suggest that we have reached a level where offshore projects are becoming viable again, especially for deepwater recovery. In the drilling contractor segment we are receiving signals that activity, in both the jack-up and floater markets, is slowly starting to pick up, as evidenced by the Mærsk Deliverer’s recent contract in Timor-Leste and the Maersk Convincer’s long-term contract in Brunei.
Subsea UK, a major participant at the AOG 2016 Exhibition and Conference, has provided important input into a “refreshed” oil and gas strategy that is being developed to overcome the current challenges faced in the North Sea.
Josiah McVicar, Delmar Systems, Inc. discusses an effective technique for training and hazard assessments related to mooring system deployment over and around subsea oil and gas infrastructure.
The critical subsea sector of the oil and gas industry will be a key topic at AOG 2015 at the same time as Australasia continues to be at the forefront of global investment destinations. According to a recent report produced by leading international energy analysts Douglas-Westwood (DW) – which incidentally will be making a keynote […]
After a slight lill, global subsea activity is set for a dramatic period of activity with hardware Capex estimated to total US$117 billion between 2014 and 2018, a growth of more than 80% compared to the preceding five-year period, according to a new report from leading International oil and gas industry research group Douglas-Westwood (DW).
