Singapore-based marine engineering shipyard has delivered a wide range of engineering services. In order to deliver these services, it relies upon third-party providers to supply a range of equipment and services – including electronic components suited to harsh marine environments.
Offshore drilling and production platforms are complex systems, with limited space and round-the-clock operations in often hostile conditions. Platforms continue to become more compact and more sophisticated with an ever-increasing complexity of electronic systems, sensors, communications and safety equipment.
Fiber optics (FO) technology is finding new uses in subsea applications. Fiber allows longer transmission distances and higher data rates than copper — a fortuitous development, as offshore drilling moves to deeper depths. Petroleum exploration and production are also becoming smarter.
Offshore drilling activity continues to migrate into deeper waters, especially with new oil and gas discoveries happening in smaller reservoirs located in deeper waters. Making these discoveries commercially viable relies on not only revenue from high oil and gas prices but also on reducing operating expenses (OPEX) and capital expenditures (CAPEX). Oil and gas producers are now looking at new technologies to produce effectively these high-pressure, complex reservoirs. Technologies such as subsea boosting and subsea gas compression allow subsea processing of hydrocarbons to change the economics of deepwater production.
