Scalable battery storage: Transitioning to clean subsea energy systems

Batteries for subsea use are common, with applications ranging from small sensors and instrumentation, through to fully autonomous robotic vehicles. The next big leap for subsea battery systems in oil and gas is electrification of hydrocarbon production facilities. EC-OG is ready to take on the challenge with our Halo Subsea Battery Storage system.

Aberdeen Harbour: Scotland’s gateway to a world of possibilities

Covid-19 has had an unarguably dramatic and far-reaching impact on everyone, and on organisations of all types – we have all felt the effects of lockdown and the economic slowdown. However, even as we saw a fall in revenue at the port due to reduced oil and gas activity and fewer ferry sailings, the pandemic brought out the very best in our employees, stakeholders and customers.

Smart Basin: A key tool in energy transition

Data is key to good decision making in all sectors of industry and society and the Technology Leadership Board Digital Technology Theme highlights the truly disruptive potential of digital technologies. As we move towards a net zero economy, only through exploiting cross sectoral data can we achieve the potential of digital technologies, thereby aiding a smooth and sustainable energy transition. Combining data from the oil and gas and the renewables sectors with the nascent hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS) industries will provide a platform for the best decision making.  At the National Decommissioning Centre (NDC) we are initiating several projects which will help deliver this.

Intelligent integrity management solution enables cost savings of 25%

In an industry faced with an unprecedented level of turmoil due to the compounding events of the COVID-19 pandemic and the collapse of Oil & Gas commodity prices, one thing is for sure; Asset Integrity & Reliability remains as, if not more important than ever. Beyond the regulatory requirements of operating Oil & Gas facilities, the simple truth is that safe and sustained production is the difference between success and failure, or in Oil & Gas parlance; Late Life or CoP.
