subsea-7-det-norske-and-aker-solutions-announce-norway-pact

Aker Solutions, Det norske oljeselskap and Subsea 7 agreed on a so-called “one for all, all for one” collaboration model that should, as the companies believe, mark a major shift in how an operator and its suppliers can work together on oil and gas developments offshore Norway.

The alliance combines Det norske’s exploration and production know-how with Aker Solutions’ expertise in front end engineering, brownfield modifications and subsea systems and Subsea 7’s capabilities in the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning of subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF).

island-offshore-aims-for-riserless-heavy-well-intervention

Following a successful deployment of its riserless coil tubing (CT) technology in the offshore petroleum industry, Island Offshore is said to be taking it to the next level by performing heavy well intervention with coil tubing in producing subsea wells.

In 2015 Island Offshore made history when drilling a pilot hole for Centrica by means of riserless coil tubing, in order to check for shallow gas at the location.
