OneSubsea technology showcase attracts more than 100 people


More than 100 guests from across the north-east oil and gas industry have attended a two-day showcase of some of the latest technology in the subsea sector.

OneSubsea, part of Schlumberger, threw open the doors of its site at Portlethen, near Aberdeen, for the event.

Aimed at operators but also open to students and young professionals, the showcase was focused on multiple application reinjection systems (Mars) and featured three-dimensional models and presentations on subsea hardware.

There was also an outdoor exhibition of some of OneSubsea’s portfolio of high-tech Mars equipment.

Sales manager Phillip Rice, said: “We are delighted that so many visitors could attend.

“For some people, it offered a unique opportunity to experience and interact with offshore and subsea equipment not usually seen onshore and together at one time”.

“In particular, it was wonderful to welcome over 40 students and young professionals on day two of the outdoor exhibition.

“They were each given the chance to participate in activities which included sitting in the control seat unit of an offshore coiled tubing unit, and operating a remotely operated vehicle manipulator arm.”

OneSubsea was formed as a joint-venture between energy giants Schlumberger and Cameron International.

The two companies completed a merger last year after Schlumberger acquired its rival in a £10billion-plus cash and shares deal.

The takeover created a company with combined revenues of £38billion, based on 2014 figures, and about 95,000 employees in 85 countries.

Now a subsidiary of Schlumberger’s Cameron division, OneSubsea is focused on integrated products and services for the global subsea oil and gas market.
