MacArtney Supports Mediterranean Sea Observatory

MacArtney France continues to supply Teledyne Oil & Gas connectivity solutions to the pioneering MEUST-NUMerEnv observatory project located 40 kilometers offshore Toulon, France.

Over the last two decades, MacArtney France has provided connectors to ANTARES (Astronomy with a Neutrino Telescope and Abyss environmental RESearch) and the MEUST (Mediterranean Eurocentre for Underwater Sciences and Technologies) – a permanent deep-sea observatory deployed at a depth of 2500 meters below the sea surface.

The NUMerEnv (Neutrino Mer Environnement) project, the second phase of the MEUST project is a technologically advanced cabled infrastructure hosting the neutrino telescope of the KM3NeT Collaboration and deep-sea observatory, EMSO (European Multidisciplinary Seafloor Observatory).

Cabled observatories, connected to land by electro-optical cables provide continuous data transmission and offer unique opportunities for the study of the neutrino – the most mysterious of the elementary particles – and to Ocean Science for the monitoring of deep-sea phenomena.

MacArtney will attend the CNRS Awards Ceremony in Marseille this week to celebrate the presentation of the new Cristal Collectif Award, an award created in 2018 to reward teams of engineers and technicians for their outstanding innovative and collective technical expertise. CNRS (The French National Centre for Scientific Research) is the largest public scientific research body in France.

This year the award goes to the MEUST-NUMerEnv engineers and technicians from the Centre for Particle Physics of Marseille (CPPM, CNRS – Aix-Marseille University) for pioneering deep-sea neutrino astronomy and for offering new perspectives for multidisciplinary research including the study of the evolution of the climate, oceanic circulation and biodiversity.

MacArtney’s scope of supply to this ongoing project includes an ongoing tender for Teledyne Oil & Gas connectors, Interlinks, Y cables, Jumpers, Battery and Sensor Links.

Olivier Ferre, system sales manager for MacArtney France SAS, said,

MacArtney has been supporting the ANTARES and the MEUST-NUMerEnv projects for almost two decades and will continue to do so in the future. This pioneering work will see advancements in ocean science and our understanding of the Universe itself. MacArtney France would like to congratulate the team of engineers and technicians on their well-deserved Cristal Collectif Award for 2019.”

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
