Proserv introduces new subsea control, communications tool
ABERDEEN -- Energy technology services company Proserv has unveiled a new technology for subsea control and monitoring communications.
The Artemis 2G (A2G) subsea electronics module is a next-generation controls and communications tool that frees operators from the constraints of an existing brownfield umbilical by finding additional signal capacity, to enable a cost-effective field upgrade or extension. In addition, A2G offers high-speed, copper-based, multi-drop networks as a viable alternative to fiber optic infrastructures within the subsea production system.
Proserv’s A2G has been developed as an evolution of the company’s suite of subsea control modules, and is fully compliant with the latest ISO 13628 part 6, API 17F and Subsea Instrumentation Interface Standardization. A2G can be used to co-exist with existing networks, is fully compatible with all existing technology, and does not require any proprietary software for remote configuration and support.
Earlier this year, Proserv announced two separate contract wins with Noble Energy and Talos Energy in the Gulf of Mexico, where the A2G system is to be implemented on Noble’s Gunflint field in the Mississippi Canyon area, as part of work to control two deepwater wells about 70 mi from the Louisiana coast.
