OSIL Modular Vibrocorer for Exploration Electronics

Ocean Scientific International Ltd. (OSIL) have recently supplied Exploration Electronics with a custom built Vibrocorer system for use in their rental pool.

The purchase of this system by Exploration Electronics, who specialises in the rental and operation of marine seismic systems, adds to the company’s existing rental pool of seabed sampling equipment.

OSIL adapted the vibrocorer system to meet Exploration Electronics’ requirements. The system can be used in dense or compacted sediments in depths of up to 600m.

Paul Fisher, business manager for Exploration Electronics, said: “As a geotechnical and seismic service provider with a 35-year track record and a reputation for providing reliable and high quality equipment, maintaining that reputation across all of our services has been a key objective. To that end we have selected OSIL as our preferred supplier of sediment corers and grabs.

Our most recent addition to our rental pool is the OSIL modular Vibrocorer, we chose this unit in response to customer demand for core samples up to 10m in length, using an easily transportable modular system.

The OSIL modular Vibrocorer fits the bill, exactly.”

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.
