Top Videos of 2016

Subsea World News has put together a recap of the most popular videos of 2016.

Top videos include installation of subsea templates on Maria field offshore Norway, setup of the Ayatsil-C jacket in the Bay of Campeche, the construction of the wellhead platform jacket for Maersk Oil’s Culzean field, the installation of subsea flowlines for Ichthys LNG project and the introduction of new subsea concept by Statoil.

Top videos of the year were:


Heerema Wraps Up Ichthys Flowlines Setup

Heerema Marine Contractors Australia (HMC), under the contract awarded by McDermott, completed the installation of 140 kilometers of rigid subsea flowlines for Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project.

The infield flowlines were set up in water depths up to 275 meters to carry reservoir fluids from 20 subsea wells to the project’s two floating processing facilities.

Heerema used its deepwater construction vessel (DCV) Aegir to complete the project.


Statoil Unveils New Subsea Concept

Norway’s Statoil has presented a new subsea concept designed to reduce cost and increase efficiency.

The new concept, called Cap-X, is estimated to cut costs by as much as 30% compared with conventional technology.

According to Statoil’s video, which further explains the concept, this could be the standard for the next-generation subsea solutions.


Fabrication of Culzean WHP Jacket

The video shows the construction of the wellhead platform jacket for Maersk Oil’s Culzean field, located offshore UK.

The jacket, 114 meters tall, left the Heerema’s Vlissingen yard mid April onboard a barge which transported it to its location in the Central North Sea approximately 200 km east of Aberdeen in license block 22/25a.

Heerema Fabrication Group started building the jacket, designed by Ramboll, in 2015.


 Maria Subsea Templates Installation

The video shows Wintershall’s flagship development in Norway achieving a new milestone as the subsea templates for the Maria field were installed some 210 kilometers offshore Norway.

Two subsea templates arrived in Kristiansund in May onboard the heavy load carrier Meri.

The field solution will see the two seabed installations linked to three existing platforms in the Norwegian Sea: Kristin, Heidrun and Åsgard B.


McDermott Installs Ayatsil-C Jacket in Mexico

The video shows preparation and setup of the Ayatsil-C jacket in the Bay of Campeche, Mexico, by McDermott team.

McDermott secured the contract for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the jacket from Pemex.

The work was carried out by McDermott’s transportation and launch barge, Intermac 600, and heavy-lift Derrick Barge 50 vessel.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
