Highlights-of-the-week..

Subsea World News has put together a recap of the most interesting articles from the previous week (January 16– January 22).


TechnipFMC has started operating as a unified, combined company following completion of the merger of FMC Technologies and Technip.

The company, with approximately 44,000 employees, said it is moving forward with a purpose to bring together the scope, know-how, and determination to transform project economics and a vision to enhance the performance of the world’s energy industry.


Subsea 7 said that one of its wholly owned subsidiaries has made an offer to acquire the 50 percent shareholding in Seaway Heavy Lifting currently owned by K&S Baltic Offshore (Cyprus).

The terms of the offer are binding on Subsea 7 until July 1, 2017. During this period the Works Council representing the employees of Seaway Heavy Lifting in the Netherlands will be consulted in compliance with Dutch law.


Subsea 7 has received an early termination of the day-rate contract for its pipelay support vessel (PLSV) Seven Mar from Petrobras.

The termination is effective January 16, 2017, the company informed.

The contract was due to expire in 2018 and as a result the group backlog has diminished by approximately USD 106 million.


ACE Winches has advised its employees of potential headcount reductions at its UK facilities in Turriff, Aberdeenshire.

The company is currently in consultation with its staff and said it is making every effort to mitigate any potential impact on its employees.

As a result of this process it is anticipated that about 30 positions will be impacted.


Brazilian state oil company, Petrobras, has awarded pipelay support vessel (PLSV) Skandi Vitoria a contract of 532 days.

The contract for the first pipelay vessel ever built in Brazil will start in January.

The vessel is owned through a joint venture together with Technip.

The vessel is well suited for pipe laying, subsea construction, installation and maintenance work.

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.
