Project Name
Subsea Rotating Override Gear

Client
Statoil and Aker Solutions

Description
Actuator for closing of valves via ROV. The gir converts low torque rotary movement to linear actuation. Over 90 gears delivered and in operation in the Statoil Visund Field

Project Name
Heavelock

Client
Statoil

Description
Heavelock is an autonomous sub for use where pressure windows are tight. This is typically while drilling through the reservoir section.

Techni Contribution
Design, prototyping.

Technical Challenge
Experiencing even small fluctuations in pressure, around 2-3 bars, can lead to both dangerous and costly consequences such as kicks and formation damage.

Project Name
BAMSE: B-Annulus Monitoring System

Client
Statoil

Description
Continuous pressure and temperature monitoring system for B-annulus for subsea wells. Currently in review for Statoil TRL4 qualification

Techni Contribution
Concept sensor design, system design, prototyping, extensive testing

Technical Challenge
The B-annulus is inaccessible for subsea wells, hence there is a desire to not have any fragile electronic components in this space. It is also not desirable to have any penetrations of the casing. Challenge is to measure and communicate the pressure in B-annulus. BAMSE system utilizes a novelultrasonics based system to measure through the casing wall

Other
Monitoring of B-annulus is required by the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority: “Annulus should have pressure monitoring”

Project Name
Subsea MAPS pump

Clients
Statoil and PG Pumps

Description
Design and prototype construction of high performance multipurpose pump  

Techni Contribution
Concept development, design and prototype build of MAPS pump

Technical Challenge
Full development of a permanent magnet motor (PMM) with linear actuation to drive four pumps. Smart energy conservation system and low pump ripple

Other
The MAPS pump system won the 2011 Spotlight on New Technology Award at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas
