Makai Updates Its Software for Subsea Cable Installation Projects

Makai has released version 6.0 of its MakaiPlan Pro, a software for planning and simulating subsea power and telecom cable installations.

In addition to MakaiPlan tools, the new Pro version allows the user to perform 3D dynamic simulations of a submarine cable installation.

“We are continuously improving our products to satisfy the evolving needs of our users, whether it is new tools to address power cable installations or adding automated features to make our users’ lives easier,” said Venkata Jasti, manager of submarine cable systems at Makai. “This release is part of our ongoing effort to upgrade all of our products to take advantage of the increased computational capabilities of the next generation of PCs. A major MakaiPlan upgrade was released last year. Now we are releasing MakaiPlan Pro and we intend to release an upgrade for MakaiLay later this year.”

How It Works

According to Makai, the operator can quickly simulate an entire cable lay in advance from the comfort of the office at up to 50 times faster than real-time. This is useful for developing ship installation plans, performing pre-lay and post-lay analysis, and also for operator training.

Furthermore, the operator can run advanced simulations for conducting installation feasibility studies and equipment selection. A detailed simulation aids installers in understanding how to control cable seabed slack/tension during dynamic cable laying situations such as starts and stops, repeater deployments, sharp alter courses, and dealing with irregular seabed.

6th Offshore Well Intervention Conference Gulf of Mexico

The Offshore Well Intervention Gulf of Mexico conference (OWI GOM) is returning to Houston, Texas for its sixth year on Wednesday 20 – Thursday 21 November.

Featuring Anadarko, BP, Shell, Chevron, BHGE and Oceaneering, the conference aims to help operators transition to the latest compliance updates, WI systems and business models that enhance safety, quicken well access and improve commerciality.

Across two days, more than 200 delegates, 15 exhibitors and 30 speakers will network together and create solutions to some of the most pertinent industry challenges right now, through a conference programme focused on:

  1. Clarifying compliance updates
  2. Quicker well access and safer well control
  3. ​Understanding HPHT well intervention (systems)
  4. Forecasting well intervention activity, discussing new commercial models and comparing platform options
  5. Best practice riserless well intervention
  6. ​The latest well intervention equipment
