For the first time, the Arctic Technology Conference shines the spotlight on the latest innovations in the Arctic E&P industry. A panel of qualified E&P professionals reviewed entries from exhibitors and selected recipients based on these criteria: New, Innovative, Proven, Broad Interest and Significant Impact.
Congratulations to the 2012 Spotlight on Arctic Technology award recipients! Join us in honoring these companies at the awards presentation. Monday, 17:15 • ATC on Ice Reception • Exhibition Hall.
To eliminate traditional risks and time constraints associated with acquiring data in challenging, ice-covered environments, ION developed a custom under-ice towed marine streamer technology to allow for the safe and efficient collection of commercial grade seismic data. The unique solid design is calibrated for high latitude operations to withstand extreme temperatures and pole magnetics without any degradation to the equipment or data quality. The operation uses a dual-vessel system and polarclass icebreaker to clear a path for the seismic vessel, while the proprietary towing arrangement deflects the remaining ice from damaging the cables in tow. The streamer steering system keeps streamer cables within the planned fairway and, if necessary, steers around or beneath large ice bodies near the vessel. These systems allow the vessel operator to keep the streamer cables in the water despite storm-induced wind gusts in excess of 100 knots and have enabled the acquisition of data further north than ever before while dramatically extending the traditional season.
The Aqua MTM (Magnetic Tomography Method) Technology developed by R&D Center “Transkor-K” (Russia) in joint effort with PETRONAS (Malaysia) is intended for a metal stress-deformed state assessment of offshore ferromagnetic pipelines of any purpose.
It is based on remote registration of a pipeline background magnetic field using subsea Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV). The technology allows carrying out an inspection of 100% of pipelines’ length while guaranteeing probability of stress-deformed state anomalies detection (POD) >80%.
The MTM inspection advantages are:
