Subsea Wireless Communications Presents Challenges and Benefits

Keywords: Subsea Wireless Group, SWiG, Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV), Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), Subsea Wireless Communications, Asset Positioning, Pipeline Monitoring, Riser Monitoring.

The Subsea Wireless Group (SWiG) recently held its quarterly Technical Capabilities and Standards Development meeting in Boston to help develop standards for subsea wireless communications. These include four primary technologies: radio frequency (RF), acoustic, free space optical (FSO), and hybrid (iterations of the three media). To meet the growing demand for subsea production systems, a number of industry stakeholders have taken it upon themselves to participate in SWiG to help develop and promote interoperability of subsea wireless networks to help benefit the entire subsea and offshore oil & gas community.

The overall objectives of the not-for-profit SWiG are to:

  • Encourage dialog between users to achieve interoperability of through-water communications approaches
  • Raise industry awareness and acceptance of through-water communications
  • Identify and develop needed industry standards for through-water communications
  • Encourage integration of subsea communication technologies
  • Promote best practices across the industry
  • Promote knowledge transfer across the industry
