France: Sercel Launches Latest Solid Streamer Sentinel RD

Sercel announced the expansion of its marine seismic equipment offering with the launch of the Sentinel® RD, the latest generation of its Sentinel solid streamer. With over 4,000 km of streamers delivered to more than 60 seismic vessels worldwide since its introduction in 2005, Sentinel has become the system of choice for streamer seismic survey acquisition.

Fully compatible with Sercel’s Seal 428 and Sentinel, the Sentinel RD has a reduced diameter and a 15% weight reduction, providing reduced cable drag and increased storage capacity onboard seismic vessels.

Sentinel and Sentinel RD are the perfect tools for marine seismic acquisition, as a result of their unmatched reliability and outstanding data quality at low frequency, allowing the application of advanced acquisition and processing techniques for more accurate interpretation and enhanced imaging of deep targets below complex overburdens.

Pascal Rouiller, CEO, Sercel, and Senior Executive Vice President, CGGVeritas said: “Offering the best signal-to-noise ratio, Sentinel is the most operationally efficient system available in the industry today. The new reduced-diameter design will further strengthen Sercel’s position in the marine acquisition market.”

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGGVeritas, said: “Sentinel RD can be deployed for a wider range of layout options including denser or longer configurations to meet growing demand for high-end marine seismic techniques such as broadband, high-density and long-offset acquisition. It is yet another example of the industry lead our equipment division consistently takes to develop innovative technology to meet evolving industry requirements.”

CGGVeritas is a leading international pure-play geophysical company delivering a wide range of technologies, services and equipment through Sercel, to its broad base of customers mainly throughout the global oil and gas industry.

Substructures for UK Offshore Wind

Design, construction and installation

Optimising offshore substructures is one of the key challenges for reducing LCOE. Foundation designers have produced a variety of different solutions: monopiles, GBS, jackets, suction buckets and floating foundations. Looking at U.K. projects – different soils, water depths,fabrication timelines and installation challengescreate many questions for the industry to solve. We’re entering uncharted territory; projects arelarger, farther and more complex than ever completed.

Now is the time to have a close look at lessons learnt and define the room for improvement for the U.K. wind industry.

2nd Annual Offshore Power Cable Engineering and Reliability Forum

This exclusive BIS forum will showcase an analytical insights into how industry leaders are reducing risk and improving efficiency during offshore power cable installation. Participants will learn how to increase cable integrity and manage cost during offshore projects. This interactive forum will explore effective and safe maintenance of offshore cables in deeper, harsher environments. With a two day intimate forum followed by half a day workshop, joining together key industry professionals to discuss, brainstorm, share experience and partake in exclusive networking sessions in a flexible and dynamic platform – together shaping the future of the market.

As Europe strives to meet its 2020 renewable targets the need for infrastructure increases and the integration of renewable energy into the European grid along with the necessity for trade is of huge importance. HVDC offshore cables are a vital investment; both of time and money, and any challenges arising could result in operational and financial losses. An insight on how to efficiently cope with the changes and keeping up with market trends is needed.

This BIS GROUP Forum will allow leading electricity cable and interconnection players to exchange and discuss experience on reliable offshore power cable monitoring, protection strategies, repair and installation technologies that are vital for operating in cost-efficient manner. The forum will also provide solutions and strategies on how to overcome the challenges of laying and installing of offshore power cables in deep water / far offshore.

KEY TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • Deepen your insight into the latest cable design advancements
  • Identify the latest technological innovations in cable laying & installation projects
  • Explore the possibilities of dynamic cables and deep water installation
  • Discover new generation of cost effective burial and trenching methods
  • Ease your cable protection strategy and save your resources
  • Explore how to use the latest monitoring and testing techniques to enhance cable repair
  • Gain invaluable insight into the latest maintenance methodologies to achieve cable integrity and reduce cost
  • Benefit from expert opinion on predictive and preventative maintenance strategy
  • Examine vessel capabilities and availabilities in offshore projects
  • Receive clarification on the roles and responsibilities of Marine Warranty Surveyor
  • Take advantage of an excellent opportunity to meet other stakeholders in an informal setting
