Subsea liquid storage technology introduced
Subsea storage technology is newly developed and available to
address the shift toward seabed positioning of (pressure-balanced)
pumps, compressors, and related power grids which can compromise switch gear and power transformers.
Designed to deliver high-reliability, long-term subsea storage of
large liquids volumes, technology has completed R&D and successfully passed a full product qualifcation testing. It is to be applied at a Pile Installation Frame operated by Seaway Heavy Lifting.
In addition to compensating for hydrostatic pressure, the technology accommodates oil volume fuctuations caused by temperature changes. Subsea liquids storage also serves such equipment as large-volume subsea hydraulic systems with signifcant differential (oil) volumes by a large number of actuators. Additional specifcs are yours free upon request .

Tools cut BOP testing time, expenses in a single downhole trip for all three subtests
One Trip is announced “to greatly reduce the time and costs associated with mandatory Blowout Prevention testing.” This company collaborated with Shell Offshore Engineering to engineer, manufacture, and test the universal tool for any BOP confguration.
All three traditional staged subtests: BOP large RAM, small RAM, and sheering capabilities which require testing tools to run
multiple ‘trips’ along the BOP stack — are performed in a single trip down the hole, it’s declared. Technology holds the tool downhole until BOP test results are confrmed satisfactory.
OneTrip capabilities also include low-torque, high-pressure seal design to ensure resilient downhole seal to withstand harsh
subsea conditions plus ability to withstand 25,000 psi test and to sustain up to 1.2M lb load.
