Statoil Gullfaks

Statoil is investigating a chemical leak on the seabed of the North Sea Gullfaks field.

Morten Eek, a press officer for Statoil’s exploration and field development on the Norwegian Continental Shelf confirmed to Subsea World News that the company discovered a leak of 1,500 liters of barrier fluid.

Statoil said the leak was not caused by a malfunction to the compressors or the compressor technology.


Top-Interviews-of-2015

During the year, Subsea World News has conducted interviews with the representatives of some of the biggest players in the industry, revealing their current projects and future plans.

In 2015 we’ve seen the establishment of several new companies in the industry, and we spoke with the representatives of Technip and FMC Technologies about their newly created 50/50 joint venture, Forsys Subsea.

In a separate interview our team spoke with Technip’s President Subsea, Hallvard Hasselknippe.


Scientists-Discover-New-Deep-Sea-Vents-in-Mariana-Back-Arc

A team of scientists on a 28-day expedition onboard R/V Falkor have more than doubled the number of known hydrothermal vent sites in the Mariana Back-arc region.

Several momentous findings were made, including the discovery of one of the deepest vents ever found.

The group used their Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Sentry, operated as part of the National Deep Submergence Facility.
