Oil & Gas Solutions – Global Marine Systems
When charged with leading your company to greater profitability by maximizing revenue while minimizing both risks and costs, you need field technologies that are efficient, reliable and that support business objectives.
That’s why companies around the world are turning to high speed data networks for their fields and to Global Marine Systems for their offshore engineering and installation needs.
As a company that engineers and installs fibre-based communications networks, we've worked with customers to improve field data connectivity and to take advantage of the unique benefits high-speed data networks can provide to offshore fields.
Broadband data networks are rapidly emerging as the most effective technology to support a wide variety of advances in oil field management, from operational efficiencies to improved safety and enhanced working conditions.
Oil companies are using high-speed data networks to manage risk, monitor fields, and supervise remote drilling operations, using real-time information to drive field economies.
Global Marine Systems provides a complete engineering, installation and cable routing solution for your offshore communications and data network requirements.
Permanent Reservoir Monitoring system installation
Permanent Reservoir Monitoring - or PRM - is a relatively new method for enhancing oil recovery from offshore fields. The systems have improved operational costs and optimized drilling and well planning. Global Marine provides installation and engineering expertise for your PRM systems.
Global Marine’s long history working with small diameter cables, such as those used in PRM, put the company in an ideal position to support your installation requirements. The company state-of-the-art fleet and accompanying specialty ROV’s, ploughs and trenchers are critical to the success of PRM installations.
Companies that have installed permanent monitoring systems are expecting to increase their oil production by an estimated 10% at fields where the technology is installed. Statoil, BP, Conoco Phillips, Petrobras and Shell all employ the technology at offshore fields. Statoil recently reported that their seismic systems will expand recovery by 30 million barrels at Snorre and Grane installations.
Cable routing and cable engineering services
Clear identification of seabed obstacles and full evaluation of all installation considerations helps promote sound risk profiles, manage investment requirements and ensure long-term system security for your offshore data projects.
Risks to integrity caused by either the natural environment or external factors need to be considered during system design. Working with Global Marine Systems is the best way to ensure systems are installed to the best possible standard, as cutting-edge engineering is used throughout the project.
Before the first cable is laid, Global Marine evaluates risk, plans cable routes and makes considerations for alternatives. By making these plans early, the system installation is finished on-budget and on-time, every time.
Shallow water services
Shallow water services refers to shore-end installations, where a similar but different set of capabilities is required to safely bring a subsea cable onto land.
Global Marine Systems has a substantial skill base in shallow water engineering and cable protection close to shore. This includes protection against waves, beach erosion and other natural elements. We also have access to specialised shallow draft vessels and personnel that can utilise smaller boats and land equipment. In most areas, Global Marine can deploy divers to assist with underwater cables.
Research, maintenance and jointing are key parts of subsea cable operations, and Global Marine Systems is a leader in these areas. With expertise in both specialist installation equipment, rapid response for cable repair and maintenance, and a frontrunner in cable joint technology, Global Marine can ensure that subsea operations are always carried out to the highest standard.
