Introducing the Energy Workforce and Technology Council
“A unified sector has always been important,” Rod Larson said. “As a representative of the industry, I think local, state and federal governments need to understand their constituents are really engaged in a positive way — providing jobs, giving back and being critical parts of the local community.”
New Work-Class ROV Can Operate in Harsh Tidal Environments
Existing work class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) are struggling to keep up with the raging tidal currents found at offshore wind and renewable project development areas. Oceaneering was approached to create an ROV solution that would open operational windows in these geographical areas where harsh currents can cause costly project delays.
Safety: A Factor That is Critical to The Sustainable Growth of the Sector
The deployment of subsea technology geared to remote controlled operations, using autonomous AUVs and ROVs, has helped companies to enhance their operational safety, reducing people’s exposure while also reducing costs.
Collaboration as a Success Factor
For OKEA, the goal is not to become a giant that has all the necessary expertise in-house. The strategy is to find the right team for the job. Like when they together with Oceaneering developed a toolbox for locked valves on the Draugen field.
What’s Next and What’s Needed in Offshore Oil and Gas
The question now is can we be “clean”? More precisely, can we be clean enough to get a public mandate to continue what we do to provide the energy the world needs, asks Oceaneering President and CEO Rod Larson.
Oceaneering Remediation Solutions
Since 2007, Oceaneering has developed remediation systems to solve such problems as waxes, hydrates, paraffins, asphaltenes, and scales, and have carried out over 200 intervention projects globally.
Advancing Oceaneering’s Freedom Autonomous Subsea Vehicle Through Rigorous Testing
Oceaneering continues to test its autonomous Freedom vehicle offshore Norway, achieving milestones along the way.
Enabling Remotely Operated Surveys with Reliable Data and Communications
Remotely operated surveys reduce personnel on board, decrease HSE exposure and reduce overall project costs.
The Future of Offshore Energy is Automated
Oceaneering’s President and CEO, Rod Larson, discusses the impact of automation, machine learning, and artificial intelligence play on offshore operations in the not-so-distant future in the January issue of Ocean News & Technology,
