Pipeline game-changer

DNV has developed a radical new concept, called X-Stream, that could dramatically reduce the cost of deep and ultra-deepwater gas pipelines while still complying with the strictest safety and integrity regime currently in force.

Openwater record set

SHELL and Oceaneering International have set a new industry record in subsea well intervention by successfully replacing a failed subsurface-controlled subsurface safety valve in the US Gulf of Mexico using an "openwater wireline" technique at a water depth of 815m (2,673ft). This sets the bar for producing wells. Openwater wireline has previously been deployed only in shallower waters.

Records for StatoilHydro and North Sea Alliance

TWO new records have been set in north-west European waters in recent weeks, one by StatoilHydro with a live pipeline hot tap, while an alliance comprising Island Offshore, FMC Technologies and Aker Well Service has set a new water-depth world record for subsea riserless wireline intervention from a ship.

Wins for Fugro

FUGRO GEOS has been awarded two significant metocean contracts offshore East Africa. The first piece of work involves one year of ocean current measurement which will involve moorings in up to 1,700m (5,577ft) water depth off the Tanzanian coast.

Yet more Brazilian strikes

ANADARKO Petroleum has made a major "pre-salt" oil discovery on the Wahoo prospect in Brazil's prolific Campos Basin with its 1-APL-1-ESS well drilled on block BM-C-30 in some 1,417m (4,650ft) water depth. Preliminary results, based on wireline logs, indicate at least 60m (195ft) of net pay with similar characteristics to the nearby Jubarte 1-ESS-103A well.
