Page 35 of 44 July 2018 | ST 35 OTC Spotlight on New Technology Teledyne Marine was recognized by the Offshore Technology Confer- ence (OTC) with a 2018 Spotlight on New Technology Award for the FlameGuard P5-200, a flame-proof ceramic electrical penetrator for use as part of the fire-resistant envelope of an offshore surface wellhead and Christmas tree system. The penetrator is a key technol- ogy element in a 5-kV electrical feed-through system that provides three-phase power to downhole electrical submersible pumps (ESPs) in offshore dry trees. The ceramic material was devel- oped by the New Product Devel- opment team at the Teledyne Oil & Gas Technology Development Center, in partnership with the ad- vanced materials scientists at Tele- dyne Scientific, in response to cus- tomer demand for a fire-resistant, downhole electrical penetrator. Expro was also awarded a Spot- light on New Technology award at OTC for its Next Generation Landing String (NGLS), comprising a five-phase program of work to deliver a complete landing string package, including a range of new functionality across its 7 3/8 valves. It incorporates a highly de- bris-tolerant ball mechanism and hydraulic latch mechanism, dual seal protection for both environ- ment and control systems, in- creased cutting capability, and a fail "as is" retainer valve with the ability to close after a blowout preventer shear scenario. The system can save millions of dollars per well, compared to tradi- tional methods. First CSP Offshore Trinidad and Tobago Aquaterra Energy has complet- ed the delivery of a Sea Swift con- ductor supported platform (CSP) for DeNovo Energy in the Gulf of Paria, offshore Trinidad and Tobago. This is the first platform of its kind to be installed in the country and was completed in just 10 months. Located in the Iguana field, the Sea Swift was installed from a jack- up rig in 27-m water depth, ac- commodating up to four wells and including local power generation, manifolds and a control system. Drilling of the first of a three-well development campaign has com- menced, using the Well Services Rig 110. Fugro Seeks Hydrocarbon Seeps Off Brazil Working for the multiclient geo- science data company TGS, Fugro continues the hunt for hydrocarbon seeps, this time offshore Brazil. Two modern, purpose-built vessels—Fugro Brasilis and Fugro Searcher—have been deployed to acquire high-resolution multibeam echosounder and sub-bottom pro- filer data in the Campos and Santos Basins. offshore oil & ocean engineering
