Project Description

This project will develop a cost effective and complete subsea system in order to harness energy from waves.

To meet the challenge to drive down costs and make oil and gas fields economically viable, the Oil and Gas Industry is beginning to transition to greater step out distances from existing facilities and becoming more subsea orientated. In line with the industry’s new focus on building and improving the self-sufficiency of offshore assets, this project aims to provide a system that can generate and store power, which may be electrical, hydraulic/fluid or mechanical.

Such power can, it is envisaged, be utilised for heating and processing, and / or to drive equipment such as multi-phase pumps, compressors and the like. An initial target will be field developments of expected limited reserves known in the industry as “Small Pools” making them more economically viable, and most probably by providing enabling technology. Systems for larger oil and gas developments are, however, envisaged.
