Subsea World News has put together a recap of the most interesting articles from the previous week (May 01 – May 07).


A subsea technology spin-off from Norwegian firm Fuglesangs has signed an agreement with Aker BP, Lundin and NOV to develop and test a full scale prototype of  what is marketed as ‘the worlds most autonomous boosting system’.

The system will be qualified as part of The Research Council of Norway’s Demo2000 program and is suited for applications such as water treatment and water injection and possibly other “singlephase” liquid pumping applications.


Dutch subsea and survey specialist Fugro said it has generated some 16 percent less revenue on a currency comparable basis, compared to prior-year comparable period.

The company’s revenue fell from €441 million in Q1 2016 to €377 million for the period ended March 31, 2017.

Fugro said it expects further decline in revenue for the first half of 2017, however less severe than in 2016.


Norwegian minister of Petroleum and Energy, Terje Søviknes, and Wintershall’s CEO, Mario Mehren, have visited the Deepsea Stavanger rig ahead of reservoir drilling on the Wintershall’s Maria field.

Maria, Wintershall’s flagship development in Norway, is a subsea field that uses existing infrastructure to produce oil in a cost effective way.

Drilling of the six wells on the field began in March and the top holes are now complete.


DeepOcean has been awarded an engineering, procurement, fabrication and installation (EPCI) contract for wear protection on the risers at the Troll C platform in the Norwegian Sea.

The award covers, in addition to installation, the design, engineering, procurement and fabrication of the wear protection solution for the risers on the Troll C platform.

The onshore project team will work out of DeepOcean’s offices in Haugesund, Norway.


NKT has held a naming ceremony for its new cable-laying vessel, the NKT Victoria, at the power cable plant in Karlskrona, Sweden on Thursday.

The cable-laying vessel was delivered by Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven to NKT in April.

NKT Victoria is capable of laying high-voltage offshore cables with high precision based on DP3 (Dynamic Positioning) capability and a remotely operated vehicle using cameras and sonar.
