Power supply for surface or subsea equipment
Wellhead Monitoring and Control
Client : Subsea 7
Whether for the development of a new marginal field, or to compensate for a lack of adequate power supply to existing cables, local autonomous power source integration capable of providing the necessary power to subsea wellhead instruments and equipment and communicate with the main installation is of key interest to the Oil & Gas industry. Subsea 7 and GEPS Techno are working together on different configurations which can be adapted to different situations.
Oil Platform Decarbonisation
Client : Confidentiel (Oil&Gas)
In 2021, an oil company wanted to identify a solution to reduce the carbon footprint of one of its offshore production sites powered by a gas engine. The site is remote and cannot be connected to the grid.
The operator therefore called on GEPS Techno to develop a solution to use locally available renewable resources to reduce fossil fuel use.
GEPS is working on the development of a “Smart-Grid” buoy integrating production, storage and control, and connected to the platform by an underwater cable.
Autonomous Underwater Robot Recharging
Client : confidentiel (Oil&Gas)
In 2021, an oil company, which was studying the implementation of autonomous inspection robots (AUV) on its subsea installations, approached GEPS Techno because it wanted to be able to recharge the robots and transmit/receive data without any vessel support. The challenge was to limit the cost of long-term missions and to evaluate the relevance of a permanent installation.
GEPS techno is therefore studying a multi-energy buoy solution that powers an underwater docking station.
