Subsea machining oil and gas technology is continuously advancing to meet the requirements of increasingly demanding production environments: deeper water, greater distances from shore, higher reservoir temperatures and pressures. But sometimes progress comes in the form of smaller improvements or adaptations to already used methods. This article examines three such advances. PREP A rigid pipelay system which can be deployed from smaller, more readily available vessels will slash schedules and installation costs for pipe-laying projects, according to its maker Ecosse Subsea. Rigid pipelay projects typically rely on dedicated pipelay vessels commanding £250,000/day or more, the company said.
